I have had this piece for several years and have always thought the pattern was called "comet" but have never been able to verify it.
The comet patterns I find on the net do not look like this one. It is extremely similar to the Lenox "Comet" pattern of 1902 although, the star is different. My nappy has a 16 point star and the Lenox is a 12 point star. My piece is a blown mold and I believe that the Lenox Comet was a "cut" glass. The pattern in my nappy is backwards of that in the Lenox, meaning that the comet is going in a clockwise direction and mine counter-clockwise. Also there is a pattern around the edge that seems to be tassel ?
It is about 8-1/2" long and 5-3/4" wide. If anyone knows what the pattern is that would be fantastic ! Oh yes and there are no logos or maker marks that I can find.
