The body of this blown glass pitcher tapers to the bottom.  At the wide shoulder, the pitcher curves inward to the slightly flared neck.  The large spout is opposite a plain, applied handle.  The rim, which curves downward towards the handle, has a sawtooth-cut edge except at the spout and near the handle.  The pitcher is ornately cut in a variation of strawberry-diamond decoration within a panel defined by vertical grooves.  The rear of the pitcher is uncut.  The spout has draped grooves, and the body is faceted around to bottom.  A sixteen-point star is cut into the underside.  For comparison to a rounder example Bakewell glass from Pittsburgh, see no. 51  in Arlene Palmer, Artistry and Innovation in Pittsburgh Glass, 1808-1882 (2005).
