Exactingly reissued by one of the last remaining glass manufacturers in the United States, we are proud to offer our lovely Jadeite Glass Pitcher. Pressed from an original, vintage mold, this paneled pitcher with its sweetly scalloped rim is not only beautiful, but sturdy and functional as well.
Measures 8 1/2" high by 4 1/2" in diameter. Holds approximately 3 quarts. Slight variations are customary in pressed glass and should not be considered defects.
Jadeite was manufactured in the United States by many companies from the 1930s to the early 1970s. Each company produced a slight variant either lighter or darker of Jadeite's basic seafoam-green color. Jadeite was heavy, durable, inexpensive and, sometimes even free! It was often packaged as a giveaway in food and cleaning products. Many restaurants and diners served meals on Jadeite dishes, as they cost pennies to buy and were sturdy enough to hold up to commercial use.
