    This pitcher is about 5" high x 4.5" diameter base to spout, since it flares out at the bottom. That fourth image shows how much it flares out at the base. It is a pretty heavy little pitcher, solid and well made, with a thick bottom and ground pontil, no mark, no label. I don't get a strong "Made in America" vibe from it, but I could be wrong. It only cost pennies, so I decided to grab it. It took me a few minutes to figure out the color. At first I thought is was purple, but then I realized that it is an odd sort of green.

      The applied clear handle makes me think of Pilgrim Glass. The colored part is a little plain for their style. They use mostly crackle, contoured and optic glass but sometimes not.

      Thanks for the comment dammitchris! Anything is possible! I don't think, however, that I have ever seen a piece of Pilgrim glass with a ground pontil or with this type of flared base. I looked at a few hundred pitchers on ebay, just to refresh my memory, though, which was fun!
