Primary Description: 
Pitcher. Transparent greenish/brownish glass; body mold-blown, neck drawn up, handle applied, trail applied at rim. The body was blown in a cylindrical mold, and a slight bulge is present at the shoulder where the glass inflated past the confines of the mold. The shoulder is flattened. The cylindrical neck rises vertically and the rim then tapers outward. An angular strap handle is attached from the shoulder to the top of the neck, under the rim. A trail seems to have been applied to the underside of the rim. Approximately one-third of the rim has been broken away and is now lost. There is a kick on the underside of the base, with a pontil mark in the center.
