I found a matched pair of these in a store near me. The shop owner told me they came from a barn in Oklahoma. I have NO idea what they are (jugs, decanters, vases, carafes?). They are 9 1/2" tall, have a grid or waffle neck, the body has a raised crackle pattern, and the neck and body are seperated by a smooth ring. The bottom has a 12 spoke "wheel" that meet at a central round dot. The spokes are like long, skinny rectangles with rounded ends. The spokes have a thin circle around them(the circle is off-center on one of them).

I'd like to find out the pattern, maker, and circa. I think they may be a variant of the "Tree of Life" or "By Cracky" patterns, but I am not sure.I also think they may be pre-1940, because the shop owner said it was a REALLY OLD barn.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!! :)

    It looks to be a carafe to me. The crackle effect is produced by quickly dipping the hot glass in water during manufacture and reheating to stabilize. I would love to know what the failure rate is with this technique.
