Catalogue Note: The present jug/pitcher is from an important group produced by the same New York State blower. This highly recognizable group represents a naive, yet extremely bold and expressive example of American Folk Art in glass. A jug/pitcher and matching sugar bowl were sold at the Anderson Galleries' 1934 dispersal of the William Mitchell Van Winkle collection, lots 133 and 134. Another jug/pitcher and sugar bowl reside in the Corning Museum of Glass collection, accession #69.4.3 and #86.4.114. The sugar bowl illustrated by the McKearins, referenced above was originally part of George McKearin's private collection and sold through the Anderson Galleries' dispersal of his collection, April 22, 1931, lot 48. It subsequently sold through these galleries from the Duff & Molly Allen collection on October 18, 2008, lot 221. The second sugar bowl referenced above was from the Melvin Billups collection and now resides in the collection of the New Orleans Museum of Art, a gift of Mr. Billups in memory of his wife, Clarice Marston Billups.
