The Victorian Pattern Glass Pitcher Store

     Victorians must have been strong. Otherwise they could not have lifted some of their heavy glass water pitchers when they were filled with lemonade - or water - or whatever they poured from them. The average Victorian water pitcher is 8" - 9 1/2" tall, excluding the handle. Milk pitchers were closer to 7" tall and they have their own store HERE.   

  There were basically four variations of EAPG water pitchers:
-- Tankard shape such as Fancy Loop.
-- Bulbous shaped early patterns like Barberry. Most, but not all of these had            applied handles.
-- Jugs such as New Jersey and Texas Star.
-- Cylindrical (more or less)- like Actress.

wispy leaves on the sides but in the front is a long-legged bird
with a fish in its beak, standing in 'water' (engraved lines around
the lower part of the engraved section). Spectacular! $445

A beautiful pitcher in rich
'old gold/ amber' color
made by McKee ca. 1885.
It is 8" tall to mid-side.

Here 'ya go! A Texas pattern aka Loop with Stippled Panels made by the U S Glass Co., their pattern #15067 as part of their famous States' pattern line. You can see the unbroken little bubble in the handle but there is no damage to the glass at all. $255

the top and 5 3/4" across the base. The only damage is a chip,
seen HERE, under the base that just barely shows from the
side when the pitcher is sitting on a flat surface.

pattern is 8" tall with a pressed handle and one tiny burst bubble in the base. So it is completely 'as made'.  The pattern appears to be by Beatty-Brady. ca. 1900.  $68

Tulip with Sawtooth
This is a treasure! It is 9 1/4" to the highest point of the handle, flint, very heavy, no damage to the applied handle - just one rough spot on the base edge - which would be expected from a pitcher made ca 1854! Made by Bryce Richards. $850

WAFFLE pattern was made by Boston
& Sandwich Glass Co. ca. 1850's.  Think
of that!  It is very heavy flint & 8" tall at mid-side.  There is
a crack, created in-the-making, seen HERE, at the top of
the (intact) applied handle where it was attached to the pitcher
no damage to the pitcher whatsoever over these last
170 (or so) years.  $675

Bros ca 1870s. It is
8 1/8" tall at mid side.
Here's a beautiful Riverside pattern called X-Ray made ca. 1899.
What x-rays did they do then? The handle looks applied and the piece
has plenty of gilding left in its creases. Again, it
is not cloudy, just an inferior photographer. $95
X-RAY was also made in beautiful emerald green/ gold. (It is also easier to photograph.) This water pitcher is part of a gorgeous water set which includes 6 tumblers.
