    This shot glass is 4" high x 1.25" diameter body x 2" rim to handle. The handle is applied and the bottom is a bit rough. The base is fairly thick, so it is not easily tipped over. I am assuming it is meant to be used as a shot glass. I did find a set of similar shot glasses, but the handle was a bit different. Probably by one of the West Virginia glass makers. It will make nice window glass. A $.99 GW find.

    Adding text from an ebay auction since it has good references and the seller cites personal knowledge of the origin of these shot glasses:

    "PILGRIM GLASS COMPANY, CEREDO, WV, ALL COLLECTIBLES NOW SINCE THEIR CLOSING IN 2000 SET OF 6 BENEDICTINES, PILGRIM'S #606, IN VARIOUS COLORS: GREEN, AMBERINA, TOPAZ, BLUE, CRYSTAL AND TANGERINE. WHAT A SPECIAL WAY TO TREAT YOUR GUESTS! THE SET IS IN MINT CONDITION AND WOULD BE PERFECT FOR GIFT GIVING FOR A SPECIAL FRIEND. THE COLORS ARE ALL WONDERFUL, BUT TWO DO STAND OUT. THE AMBERINA (RED AND ORANGE) HAS A GREAT SEPARATION OF COLOR, NOTE THE BOTTOM AND THE TOP WITH ORANGE IN THE CENTER. THE TANGERINE ALSO HAS THAT SEPARATION WITH DARKER TANGERINE AT THE BOTTOM AND TOP WITH NEAR YELLOW IN THE MIDDLE. EACH GLASS IS APPROXIMATELY 4" TALL (REMEMBER THESE ARE MOUTH-BLOWN AND NO TWO ARE EXACTLY THE SAME) AND HOLDS 1 1/2 OUNCES THE CRACKLE IS COMBINATION - SMALL, MEDIUM AND LARGE ON EACH GLASS A PICTURE IN BLUE CAN BE FOUND IN WEITMAN's CRACKLE GLASS FROM AROUND THE WORLD, 2000, PAGE 192, WITH A VALUE OF $45 - $50 EACH- QUITE A SALE HERE! APPLIED DROP OVER CRYSTAL HANDLES - THE CRYSTAL GIVES US THE AGE AS BEING MADE AFTER 1960. THE WEITMAN'S AND I DISAGREE ON DATES, BUT MORE REFERENCES REFUTE THAT DATE THAN AGREE.A PERFECT SET WITH NO CHIPS, CRACKS, SCRATCHING OR REPAIRS, AND THE INTERIORS AS WELL AS THE EXTERIORS ARE CLEAN AND CLEAR - THAT ADDS TO THE SPARKLE THE BASES ARE ALL ADORNED WITH A TYPICAL WIDE OPEN PILGRIM PONTIL, PICTURED I BELIEVE I'VE TOLD YOU ALL YOU'LL NEED TO KNOW, BUT IF YOU SHOULD HAVE FURTHER QUESTIONS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO EMAIL WITH THEM
    Pilgrim Glass had many shapes and styles and I love them all. I received my first 'benedictine' in 1969 as my sister had a shop in Maine and sold a lot of Pilgrim..lucky me! Pilgrim keeps on giving and their colors never fade. The finest quality of blown glass.. you just can't go wrong! "

    This auction had six of these in various colors: amberina, green, clear, orange, blue and ruby.
