Singular Libbey Ellsmere Presentation Pitcher
This very unusual pitcher was made by Libbey and is signed with their trademark. It’s extremely unusual in that it has a monogram on either side integrated into the pattern. The engraving reads ‘M.H.’ Clearly this piece was a one-off, special order.
The Ellsmere pattern adapts excellently to the shape of this pitcher. A flat hobstar is flanked on either side by two bands of triple-miter cane. Rising from this area toward the center of the pitcher is fine crosshatching met with deeply cut notched prism. The handle is triple notched and the base is finished with a 20-point hobstar.
The pitcher is in perfect condition and measures Presentation pieces like this are always embraced by collectors as examples of what the artists were able to achieve during the Brilliant Period. It measures 7″ high and 5″ wide.
