Batsto Red Cedar Glass Pitcher


I found this deep amber colored glass pitcher at the Columbus Farmer’s market while rummaging through boxes. I held it up to the early morning sunlight and was delighted to see a deep amber with dark red highlights, no chips, no cracks, and BATSTO NJ 2 embossed on the bottom.  Apparently, this lovely glass commemorative pitcher #2 was made in Wheaton Village in 1980 for the Batsto Village Gift Shop from the red saw dust from the heartwood of a 150 year old red cedar tree that was milled at Batsto following a storm.  It stands 4 1/2″ tall and looks amazing when the sun shines through.
