Shreve, Crump & Low is proud to present this handblown glass version of the classic Gurgling Cod. Made exclusively for Shreve, Crump & Low in partnership with Pairpoint Glass. Originally founded in South Boston in 1837, Pairpoint is the oldest glass company in the United States. Locally handcrafted in Sagamore, MA each piece is hand blown and produced entirely as a one of a kind work of art. No two are alike, making this variety our most exclusive offering of the Gurgling Cod line.

These whimsical fished-shaped jugs stand approximately approximately 7" tall, including the base.

Please note - our hand blown Cod pitchers are an artistic take on the original design and are not created to produce the "gurgle" if water is poured from the vessel.

In 1964, Shreve, Crump & Low introduced their Gurgling Cod®, Pitcher at the request of Benjamin Dale Shreve (whose son, Richard, would be the last family member to run the company). The Gurgling Cods were modeled after a traditional English "glug jug", which was relatively unknown in the United States.

Since its introduction in 1964, the Gurgling Cod® has become a well-known symbol of Boston. Customers across the country associate these fanciful works of art exclusively with Shreve, Crump & Low. Part of what makes Shreve, Crump & Low's cod pitchers unique are their anatomically correct fins, gills, and scales of a fish native to our very own waters, as well as their unique shape. This is why a Gurgling Cod®, Pitcher will forever remind one of New England, whether viewed at our stores or anywhere in the world. The Gurgling Cod®, is made exclusively for Shreve, Crump & Low and sold only in our stores or through our web site.
