    This pattern had many names over the course of its life. It was designed by Ebeling, who designed Fostoria's famous American pattern (introduced 1915). This was first introduced as Prism Crystal in the early 1920s. Imperial also called it Triangle. It was called Mount Vernon during the 1930s, but in 1940 the name was changed to Washington due to a conflict with the Cambridge Glass Co, who also used the name Mount Vernon for a line of theirs before Imperial called theirs by the same name.
    Most collectors only know it as Mount Vernon.
