This dazzling pitcher is cut in American Cut Glass’s Samantha pattern. It was attributed and named to the company by the Anderson Study Group and features much of Anderson’s design attributes. There isn’t one area that isn’t cut to death on this piece, including the handle – please look at all the photos to gather what a terrific piece this actually is.
The main motif of the Samantha pattern is a large hobstar cluster which features 8 clear button hobstars surrounding a larger, deep hobstar. Each of the clear button hobstars is topped with a field of crosshatching. The clusters are divided on the front end of the pitcher by a large, pinched field of crosshatching banded together with three horizontal nothces. This field is perched atop a large, clear button hobstar. What is most impressive about this pitcher is the cutting around the base. Wherever there would have been clear area, there are tons of brilliant clear, button hobstars! It’s an incredible feature and extremely visually appealing. The handle is completely cut in pattern as well. The base is finished with a huge 32 spilt-point hobstar. Phenomenal!
The amount of detail and cutting in this pitcher is virtually unprecedented. It floors me every time I look at it and it will impress even non cut glass collectors. It’s in perfect condition and measures 8 7/8″ tall and 5 1/8″ wide.
