This squat pitcher set was cut by Libbey and is shown in the ACGA composite catalog reprint on page 136. It appears to be the No. 47 pattern . It is likely, because of the design elements used, that this was engineered by William C. Anderson. All pieces are signed.
The main feature of the pitcher is one of the biggest Anderson design elements – a large hobstar with an extended, crosshatch-filled point. Feathering surrounds that extended point and divides the pitcher from the rest of the pattern. Large, triangle shaped fields are filled with notching separating the larger, shooting stars. The handle of the pitcher is triple notched and the base features a rayed star. The tumblers repeat the pattern exactly – no compromises were made for the difference in size.
The pitcher and tumblers are in perfect condition with no damage and on beautifully clear blanks. The squat, cider-style pitcher is quite large measuring 6 1/4″ tall and 5 3/4″ wide. The tumblers are 3 5/8″ tall and 3″ wide. Sets this nice are rarely found and prices this inexpensive!
