Heisey Prison Stripe Pattern #357 Antique Crystal Cruet Rare
Rare Heisey Prison Stripe crystal cruet with original stopper. Very hard to find pattern and form made by Heisey in the U.S.A. for only 5 years. Circa 1904 to 1909. The pattern is also known as Horizontal Stripes.
Only 32 items (forms) were made in this pattern. This is an oil or vinegar cruet. Especially rare form, with especially rare original stopper.
Blown from mold with thick, heavy quality glass. The pattern is very deep. Appears cut. The base shows the pontil scar. Handle was hand-pulled and applied.
It is in remarkably fine condition for its age and rarity. A smooth sliver chip can be felt beneath the spout lip. It cannot be seen without inspecting very closely. The stopper has some small chiggers on the tip. Very light liquid residue on inside base only. Barely visible. No chips or chiggers to the body.
Measures 7.5″ tall. Very rare and special gift for your favorite antique glass cruet collector!
