"Why did you choose this product?"
I recently ordered another of these fabulous pitchers and I promise I will only use it as a pitcher! I had put the first one on the floor near the fireplace and filled it with white peonies! Gorgeous! But I dropped a bookend on it and knocked out two chunks of blue glass. I refused to give it up! I glued it back together and will use it only as a vase. That's how beautiful this pitcher is - sturdy, as blue as it looks in the picture, handle well-attached. I could never be without this beautiful pitcher. People ask me where I got it and I don't mind telling them. There are two sizes of glasses to match. I have the tall ones and wouldn't trade them for anything!...
Handcrafted Blown Glass 'Deep Blue' Pitcher (Mexico)by Novica
ITEM#: 13550602This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.
Ideal for cool drinks, this pitcher from Javier and Efren is a unique example of Mexican blown glass art. The pitcher is crafted by hand using techniques perfected over more than thirty year.
- Color: Blue
- Material: Blown glass
- Small air bubbles are a natural result of the hand blown process
- Dimensions: 9.1 inches high x 7.5 inches diameter
- Capacity: 59 ounces
Story Behind the Art:
Since the 1990s, Javier and Efren have worked together to preserve Mexico's blown glass artistry. Even though the art of blowing glass originally came to Mexico from Spain, and it is practiced all over the world, Mexico's blown glass artistry is unique. Working as a team, Javier specializes in the design of the pieces, and Efr¿n transforms the designs into a reality. The artisan holds molten glass with one end of a steel pipe and blows through the other end. The glass is shaped by hand before it cools.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

We had purchased cobalt blue glasses a short time before ordering this pitcher. What a great match, the manufacturer couldn't have done better. The size is perfect, too, and while it may seem a little heavy, the weight just makes it feel like something really special. Great product, will recommend it to my family/friends.Read More
The craftsmanship from this supplier appears to be extremely poor. I ordered this as a gift. The handle on the first pitcher was not well attached & had to be returned. The replacement pitcher was even WORSE! The handle was not well attached, and had a lot of deep scratches on the glass... NOT a simple indicator of being handmade, just poorly made. It was very embarrassing because this was a wedding gift.Read More
