This cute little pitcher is one of the commercial products made by the french manufacturer Arcopal for the gas firm Shell in the 70s. The lovely flowers run all around it and their bright colors will bring an air of summer to your table !

The jug is made in white opal tempered glass and the marking "France" is engraved on the rim.

It is about 3.1" wide (4,3 with the handle) and 5.5" high (8/11 x 14 cm).
The pitcher is in very good condition. There are some very faint scratches on the side of the rim, and three leaves in the pattern are slightly erased (see picture 5).

A bit of history ?
Arcopal was one of the famous brands of the french manufaturer Verrerie Cristallerie d'Arques (now : Arc International). Created in 1958, this brand presents dinnerware made in white opal tempered glass with a fire glazed finish. This process ensues that Arcopal goods are highly resistant to heat pressure and breakage.
The production is now discontinued (a very sad information for all the lovers of these gorgeous colorful patterns !)
Arcopal dinnerware is usually microwave and dishwater safe.

I offer combined shipping : convo me for details.
