| There are just some things about pattern glass that
are mysteries to us late comers.
Why are 'milk pitchers' always + or - 7" tall is one of them.
Almost all EAPG patterns had creamers or cream pitchers.
So why did they need another pitcher just a wee bit larger for milk?
Did they just fit up under the cow? Did they hold one udder-full?
Not all EAPG patterns included a water pitcher and even fewer
included both at water pitcher & a smaller milk pitcher.
But lucky for you, we've got some of them here for you.
