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.

    ***Update*** My mystery is half solved. The research department of our central library had a copy of Libby Glass Since 1818 in the basement stacks, and was kind enough to scan page 179 for me. It is hard to see and you have to be in just the right light, but there is a logo matching the logo in the ad on the bottom of the open sugar. The pattern shown on the vase pictured in the ad matches these, but no information on pattern name or number is given. Does anyone know anything about this pattern, how long it was produced and what other pieces might have been available? It would be such a thrill to be able to find additional pieces to add to this set and it is very hard to search not knowing the terminology to search for. Thank you for any help you can give.
