    This is a beautiful covered bowl, but I cannot identify the pattern! There are two "cameos" on the lid and on the bowl, which I have never seen before in depression glass. It appears to be a mother and child, but the child is a cupid or an angel. It was difficult to photograph since it is crystal, but hopefully the photo with the dark background will help you see the detail in the cameo-like etching. The detail on the rest of the bowl is beautiful too.

    Mystery solved, Thanks to BOB :^)

      EAPG=Early American Pattern Glass. This is actually a butter dish. Correct, it is Cupid & Venus first made by Richards & Hartley in 1875, and followed by Flint Glass Co. in 1891. But no relation to Minerva by Adams & Co.

      Hi Tallcakes! Simply quoted from the McCain "Field Guide to Pattern Glass" for quick attribution! BOB

      helpful hint that has helped me with crystal clear glass is to use a dark solid background to photograph. The dark background will help to bring out detail in the glass.

      BOB that was very thoughtful of you to look it up. Truly appreciated!!

      Thanks for the photo tip TC. I do need to visit the fabric store.
      Those are photos from the auction, I will repost once it arrives. :^)

      Yes, Bob, I've very familiar with McCain and like many books it does a quite a few errors in there. Unfortunately that is not one of the books with corrections listed at the MAGWV Living Book link.

      Not sure what the reference to "Flint Glass Co. in 1891" is. The pattern was only made by Richards & Hartley. It does not appear in any of the composite catalogs put out by USGCo. when they began operations in 1891. These early catalogs are composed of pages of the member factories that are bound together. Our current research indicates much of what is in those early catalogs was old stock left over from the member factories and was not actually in production. USGCo. issued several new patterns in the 15,000 series after forming and didn't need to continue producing patterns that were a decade old or more.

      Hi folks.......I'm new to this site so I've just seen the dialogue that happened 4 years ago!! This the smallest low standard covered compote. It has the scalloped edge on the base which the compotes have but the butter dish does not.
