This pitcher & six glasses were owned by my paternal grandmother, Ivy R Mark Brown. My aunt & uncle recently shared some of Ivy’s treasures with the family in a ‘No Tag Tag Sale’ that allowed family members to select items once owned and used by Ivy.
The color of this glassware caught my eye. The orange/peach color shines like gold when held in the light. Then I noticed the Dutch design on each piece. I wonder if the windmills reminded my paternal grandmother of her German & Swiss roots. Her ancestor, Heinrich Ritter, sailed from Rotterdam, Holland in 1732 with his family and made a new home in Pennsylvania.
I know nothing about the manufacturer of these pieces. I don’t see any name or logo. I doubt that they are of any great value except that they were once owned and used by my grandmother. I plan to use them when the family is gathered so we can share memories and raise a glass to Grandma.
