Irridescent Glass Jug - ID = Pilgrim
« on: February 04, 2006, 11:25:13 AM »
Could anybody help me identify this small art glass pitcher or jug?  Measures about 4 1/2" tall.  Any ideas of age, producer, designer, or any other useful information?  Has shallow rough pontil that's perfectly round, and textured "hammered" appearance to outside, except lined handle.  Thanks!

You can start and end with Pilgrim.  :lol:

It is a Pilgrim pitcher - they produced an astonishing range of 17 shapes in this little pitcher. The pitchers were "mouth blown and shaped by hand". The pitcher gets called "Nuggate" sometimes too. I wrote an article a few years ago about them that was published in our "Network" journal.

Date? Made betwen 1968 and 1973, at Pilgrim Glass Corporation, Ceredo (now out of business I believe).

The little pitchers (they also made a vase...ie the pitcher without a handle) are blue, with a golden iridescence. The applied handles are always orange/gold.
