Pitcher features an image of the High Water Mark Monument. Lettering by handle reads, “HIGH WATERMARK OF THE REBELLION / GETTYSBURG 1863.” Measures 5” high x 2 1/8” in circumference. Some areas of lettering have faded with age. Very good condition with no chips or cracks.

Custard glass became popular in the United States in the 1890s after being introduced abroad more than a decade prior to that. Souvenir glass commemorating travel destinations and historically significant dates or events were also made of custard glass around the turn of the 20th century. By and large, the original custard glass was made through the 1920s, but rarely thereafter as transparent glass became favored by consumers.

This is a nice, vintage Gettysburg collectible.   [sm]
