I've always thought this clear glass piece was just a martini pitcher, [stirred, not shaken?!] likely from the 50's or 60's when cocktails were fashionable. (and people actually just trusted themselves and common sense to enjoy them...) It is a little over 10" tall and a little under 4" across and has no markings on it, though there are one or two 'flaws' in the glass itself. (I don't know what the weird 'ripples' that appear in the flash pics are...they only appear in the camera flash, not in real life)
ANYWAYS...THIS AFTERNOON...astrohungaro posts pics of a neat pink thing called a "TZARINA jug. Nanny Still, 1960's" -- and appearing alongside it in one pic is what looks for all the world like my lowly 'pitcher', but in transparent yellow glass instead of clear.
And I don't have the *slightest* clue what the terms "TZARINA" or "Nanny Still" mean...??? <headdesk>
So until I have the time to go googling -- would anybody care to share a quick clue, please? (or good website to check out, or whatever??) Is this thing possibly more interesting (valuable?) than I've ever known??
