    This vase measures 7.75" high x 6.5" long x 4.5" wide. Doug Chapman was an artist who worked for Pilgrim Art Glass. I am still researching him. This vase is made of black glass with a white glass overlay on both sides and the bottom. It has a ground top which has been smoothly finished and polished. It is a fairly heavy piece of glass, weighing in at about 3 lbs.

    I paid $1.50 for it at a thrift shop today. I almost dropped it several times when I was washing it because it is highly polished inside and out and handles like a greased pig. It is even fairly slippery when dry. There is a bit of very minor scuffing on the bottom.

    A nice chunk of glass, though, and I was really lucky today. It was marked down to 75% off so it must have been at the shop for quite a while, but I never saw it before today. I probably would have paid full price if I had.

      I found this really interesting video about the Pilgrim Glass factory on youtube. The sound in the first 20 seconds is bad, but then it is fine for the rest of the video. The founder of Pilgrim Glass also speaks for a bit.
