    Hello Board Friends - I recently acquired a couple of pitchers I could use some help with. This pitcher stands about 8" tall. The circular pattern is on the inside. The bottom shot didn't turn out well so I'm showing the bottom by shooting from the top down. I think it was blown into a mold. I black light tested it and it glows green. Any leads on the who, what, when, where would be most appreciated. As always, thank you so much for your help.

    Thank you INH! That looks like it. For some reason "rubina verde" was slipping my mind.

    That's from Hobbs Brockunier, ca. 1885. Geo Duncan made one almost exactly like that but it's handle is more circular, rounder, less oval.

    The term "Cranberry" didn't come into use until about 1927, this was originally Rubina Verde, the red color was called Ruby.
