Coinspot Pitcher in Lime Green Opalescent. I have seen this exact pitcher attributed to Northwood and Fenton. However it is pictured in "Victorian Colored Pattern Glass Book II" by William Heacock and identified as being made by Jefferson Glass Co. around 1905. Jefferson Glass was in business from 1900 to 1933 in Ohio and later on in West Virginia, they produced opalescent glass only from 1900 to 1907. This was the inspiation for Fenton to produce coin spot patterns. Measures 9 1/8" tall. It has no chips, there is an internal cooling crack at the top of the handle where it meets the pitcher body (can not be felt from the outside or inside), a small blob of glass on the interior near the handle, there are some bubbles in the glass and 2 of the dots are very close together with a shallow crease between them on the exterior under the spout. All of which are characteristic of hand made glass and mentioned to fully inform the customer. This glass was hand made and blown into a mold then hand finished. Polished pontil. Also called Coin Spot, coin dot and thumbprint. An Early piece of Opalescent glass in an Outstanding Rare Lime Green color.
