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.

No marks.

I love small pitchers.  This one holds a quart with 1 1/2 inches of headroom.
