Vintage American Brilliant Lead Cut Glass Pitcher
Item Details
Description
In this lot is an American Brilliant Cut Glass Lead Crystal Water Pitcher. The American Brilliant period was from 1876 to 1917. From about 1876 until the advent of World War 1, American cut glass craftsmen excelled all others worldwide, and produced examples of the cut glass art that may never again be equaled. Stunning new patterns quite unlike earlier European designs were developed and patented. Patterns were given intriguing names, and leading glass houses began advertising campaigns urging collection of whole sets of goblets, tumblers, wine glasses and finger bowls in the new designs. Cutting shops proliferated to meet the demand for fine pieces of cut glass being sought by wealthy American households. America's Brilliant cut glass is appropriately named, for that is literally what it is. The cutting is brilliant because it is sharp and deep, reflecting light from highly polished surfaces. It is deep because it was made from leaded crystal that was beautiful in its clarity even though thick enough to be cut in high relief. Imaginative designers improved upon traditional motifs, arranging them in varying ways to provide for optimum reflective surfaces. This very elegant pitcher is cut in a simple star cut base with floral fans. The top rim is lined with small fluted and star prints and a zipper cut spout. Floral fans run down the handle. There is a 16 point single star on the base. With incredible cuts and details here, this would make a lovely addition to any brilliant glass collection. This pitcher measures approximately 10.75"H x 6"D by 7.75"W from handle to spout. This pitcher is in very good condition.
