    First item is 12" across and 1 1/4' high. The catalog that I saw called it a floating flower bowl(?). The second item is a footed tray 14" across identified as a torte tray. These are the last 2 items that my son found for me at the local swap shop.

      The King's Crown pattern has an interesting history. The pattern was originally made by Adams & Co. in 1890 and called 'Excelsior' and/or 'X.L.C.R.'. Adams made the pattern in crystal, ruby stained and gold trim. Adams became part of the U. S. Glass conglomerate and the pattern continued to be made by USG. Tiffin was a USG subsidiary that also had a line of King's Crown including ruby and cranberry stained. Other companies have reproduced the pattern over the years: Indiana Glass made compotes in a wide array of colors and also produced various colors of the pattern for their Tiara line; A line of stems was made for L. G. Wright with their Forest Etch.

      Thanks. I would like to be a little more focused on certain types of objects, but my brain seems to stutter occasionally when I see something unusual.
