Happy belated birthday!!
It's beauteous, great Birthday find and it's a nice size and shape. And amethyst!!
I got this Sunday, at a yard sale a few doors down as I was on my way home from a birthday breakfast (I'm officially 75).
It was covered with crud - I thought it was brown. Finally got around to putting it through the dishwasher and
IT IS AMETHYST! Hand blown, with a clean pontil/punty on the bottom. One or two small bubbles but otherwise very nice. It's heavy so I am assuming some lead content.
I love small pitchers. This one holds a quart with 1 1/2 inches of headroom.
