This shape (and variations thereof) of utilitarian tableware is found in Legras & Cie catalogues from the late 1800s (see last photo), and the combination of blue and amber glass is a Legras marker, as well. Fire polished rim, ground and polished pontil beneath the applied amber glass base. The swirl pattern in the glass is also found in other Legras colors and shapes. This pitcher holds just over a liter, so it is currently in my refrigerator - a 19th century carafe holding 21st century mango green tea.
