    I found this pitcher at an antique store and plan to use it as decor for our daughter's upcoming wedding but would like more information about it. I haven't been able to find a diamond pattern like it online in any type of glassware. There are no markings that I can find and the pitcher is 13 inches tall to the highest point on the spout.
    Thanks for any information that you can give me! I love the look of it but need to know if I should treat it with kid gloves or just enjoy it anywhere!

      Thanks TallCakes!
      I've looked at those patterns online and the pattern doesn't look quite the same but maybe the pitcher just looks different than the other pieces? If you have any photos of this pattern, can you post them?
      Thanks!

      yes, it's had to find good images online but was able to locate some. the ruby stained compote shows the details somewhat clearly and here's a spooner:

      That is it! Thank you. Is the pattern called Tarantum's Manhattan? The ruby stained compote is beautiful!
    5. TallCakes TallCakes, 4 years ago
      the company is Tarentum Glass Company and the pattern name is Manhattan. It's often referred to as Tarentum's Manhattan to differentiate from other companies' Manhattan patterns.

      Thank you TallCakes! Now I need an opinion about how I plan to use this pitcher. It will be used for my daughter's wedding reception as part of a centerpiece but I'm wondering if it is okay to put water and fresh flowers in it? I have no idea the value, only what I paid which was $15.00. At that price, I didn't feel like it would cause any damage... or would it?
    7. TallCakes TallCakes, 4 years ago
      you should have no problems using it for flowers with water. just keep the water level below the attached lip, as these were attached with plaster which can soften with prolonged contact with water. not sure on the value but $15 would be a bargain.
