Perfection, Millersburg

A highly prized pattern, distinguised by the beaded ovals with leaf shapes dangling beneath them. Perfection pitchers are found with both ruffled and flared tops. With this pattern amethyst is quite dark and often described as purple--it is seen more often than either marigold or green. A scarce pattern.
