This Piece is an example of a commonly used household item. It is not a reproduction of an artifact. Each piece was hand-blown by Jamestown Glasshouse glassblowers and is one of a kind. No two pieces are identical.
The natural color of glass is green, because sand has iron oxide or rust in it naturally. To change the color, a metal must be added. Below is a list of metals and the colors they make:
Manganese makes Clear
Cobalt makes Blue
Carbon makes Brown
Silver makes Yellow
Tin makes White
Copper or Gold makes Red
All of the Jamestown Glasshouse produced pieces are hand-blown and crafted by local artisans. The natural color of glass is green so if you seek historical accuracy then your best selection is the green glass items. Since every piece is hand blown and crafted there will be slight irregularities and therefore no two items will be exactly the same. The deluxe pitcher holds approximately 8 cups of liquid
DO NOT PUT THESE HANDBLOWN GLASS ITEMS IN A DISHWASHER OR OVEN THEY ARE TEMPERATURE SENSITIVE.
