Need Help Identifying A European Pitcher - Well, We Think
« on: December 08, 2013, 12:39:19 AM »
We need help identifying the juice pitcher that my mom bought in an antique store about 20 years ago. The owners of our local antique mall couldn't identify the mark on the bottom, but think it's pre-WWI European (most likely Dutch). The mark on the bottom has an elongated T with what appear to be tulips on each side. The pitcher itself is hand painted with a flower design.

Thank you in advance for your help. This has us stumped.

That is a West Virginia Speciality Glass blank decorated by Dorothy Thorpe. The DT sandblasted marking is unmistakable. Probably 1960s. You can find the history on Dorothy Thorpe on the web plus here is the URL for the mark:
