This Town Pump vase is 7 inches tall and 2 inches across the opening. Northwood made this pattern - "Pump" is number 566. It appears in the 1900 Pitkin and Brooks catalog, so it can be dated to this time. The opalescence extends about 2 inches down and fades clear at the bottom of this lovely vase. The texture of the tree knots is lovely. There is some damage to one of the little raised "dots." You would have to look for it.
I do note a couple of manufacturing flaws - there are a couple of strawmarks on the side (you have to look for them to find them) and 1 foot is slightly shorter than the others. The vase still sits even, but one foot does not touch the shelf. There is some damage to the feet of this piece - 2 have visible flakes and the other 2 feel rough to the touch. I believe the damage to the feet is just from years of sitting - not abnormal for a piece that is at least 108 years old. The damage is not visible unless you pick the item up and look for it.
This piece creates a beautiful display. The damage to the feet is the reason this item is priced far lower than catalog value would dictate. The spigot is intact and in excellent condition as is the opening to the vase part. This is not a reproduction because the repros are flat on top instead of pulled into little "scallops" like this example.
