These belonged to my great grandmother, who was married in 1901. I love the detail in the clover blossoms and the gracefulness of the floral and fern swag design. I have searched and searched for a name for this pattern. It seems to be a rare one. I never find a thing like it searching for clover, floral, ferns or swags. Replacements could not identify it. I have scoured the internet for it many times and I have ever found only one helpful thing... a photograph of a Libbey water set which was sold at auction that seems to be a match, but the description doesn't include a name or pattern number. It does say that the pattern was pictured in a 1911 ad shown on page 179 of "Libbey Glass, Since 1818" by Carl U. Fauster. Does anyone have this book, and if so does the the picture on that page give a pattern number, name or any other identifying information? Was it a new pattern that year? Is it really a match for these pieces?
Thank you very much for any knowledge you can share. I will appreciate it very much.
