The pitcher was broken into several pieces and has been reassembled using staples and probably glue. The sawtooth rim is chipped in places.

Although broken apart at one time, this mended pitcher displays its original overall shape, cut-glass design, and other details. The blown and shaped body has a band of cut fans around the middle, below a stylized five-leaf band. The rim has draped grooves cut along it and below a dentiled top edge; multiple grooves decorate the underside of the spout. The base of the pitcher has 13 facets, and on the underside, the pontil mark, left from blowing the pitcher, has been polished off.
It is tempting to believe that this glass pitcher was used in either the Wilson or the Corbit household, which is what its provenance suggests.
