Thank you in advance for any help you can give me. I am totally stumped on this pitcher. You would imagine it is from the depression era because of the beautiful pink color. I think it is pre depression era though. It will hold 50 oz up the the gold ring. There are panels all the way around. It also has many many tiny bubbles especially in the handle. I believe it is called a polished pontil on the base. Just about 7 1/2" tall measuring to the top of the pitcher not the top of the handle. I just love this dainty pitcher.

    It's possible that this is pre-depression era. Rose colored glass was made in America as early as the late 1890s by Tarentum, and early 1900s by McKee. In England, rose colored pressed glass was made in the Victorian period as well. The shape, especially the bulging rings at the base, and the simiple gold band at top point more toward the 1920s, however. I can't tell from the photos if the design is acid etched, sanblasted, or some other technique. The design does have an early 1900s flavor to it. It's possible your pitcher is European, which could explain the forward-thinking modern shape combined with florid, traditional decoration.

    Oh my, thank you Paul71. Now that you mention it, the color is more rose color than much of the pink made during the depression year. You are a wise man. I just love the pitcher. I think it is very dainty and feminine. DeeDee
