This pitcher vase by Williamsburg Glass Company is 11" tall and the base is 3" in diameter. It has a label that reads "Williamsburg Glass CO. Handblown Glass, Williamsburg VA". It is a bit wonky and has one of the worst pontils I have ever seen. It was snapped, leaving a rough, razor sharp remainder. The glass is a deep purplish blue which is washed out by the lighting I used.
I could find out very little about this company. Apparently, it was once also located in Lightfoot, VA. Much of what they made were reproductions of Colonial Virginia utilitarian glassware. This is the only piece made by this company that I have ever seen in the wild.
