Jeannette Hex Optic Jug/Pitcher.

This is the 9"/10" 64 fl.oz./1.9 litre Hex Optic pitcher by Jeannette apparently only made between 1928-32 but I'm not sure if that's correct. It weighs over 4lbs./2kgs. so full of water nearly 4kgs! It is marked 10A on the bottom.

Other sources say that the marigold iridescent finish was not produced until later, during the 1950's which fits with the condition of the jug.

The reliable depression glass sources say iridescent was made in the 1950s
