Seeking Opinions as to Whether this is South Jersey Glass
« on: April 27, 2014, 12:21:38 AM »
Hi,  I'm hoping someone can help me with identifying the maker or at least the region where this pitcher was made.  I'm fairly sure it is American, and was perhaps made in the South Jersey area. 

It is about 9 1/2" tall.  The base has a steep dome, rough pontil and is about 4 1/4" in diam.   
The handle is applied and celery patterned.  The spout is U-shaped and the rim is rounded. 
There are lots of seed bubbles.  It's very very heavy at 3 lb 2.7 oz. / 1.43 kg. 

Thanks in advance,

More than likely its Clevenger Glassworks - 1930 to1999 who made South Jersey reproductions by the thousands over the years & their productions sold well especially to antique dealers.

Hi again,

This pitcher is a new acquisition by the CMOG - from a bequest to them by Eason Eige, who was a museum curator and who collected Mexican glass.  This looks awfully similar to my late MIL's.  It is a pulque pitcher which was made in the early 1920s in Puebla, Mexico.

Thanks again everyone for your help.
