PPT748.  From the 1920’s is a line of glass from Pairpoint that was listed as “Tavern” or also referred to as “Potato” glass.  The original line featured only tumblers and were sold to taverns, hence the name.   Potato refers to the process of making the bubbled glass.   A potato would be added to the glass mixture and as it burned off it would produce the desired bubbles.   Later they expanded the line to include other shapes.  This particular shape is a cordial and features the Whale decoration.   The Whale decoration is one of the more sought after decorations and reflects New Bedford’s rich heritage of a prominent whaling city in the 19th century.   3 ¾” tall.
