    This beautiful piece is from my grandmother who lived in Philadephia and New Jersey in the late 1800's and was married in 1914. I would like to know the name of the pattern and what the piece is called. Thank you.

      without measurements, I'm guessing this is an open compote; tho' not cut glass. This is EAPG (Early American Pattern Glass), which is pressed glass from around 1850-1920... Your compote was made by Bryce, Higbee & Co. located in Homestead, Philadelphia beginning 1879. This piece was called 'Persian' when introduced around 1885; also known as 'Block & Pleat'...

      TallCakes, amazing work as always. :)

      I been waiting on her to look at my little glass and bowl, lol. Luck of the draw, I guess. It's all good. :)

      thanks to both of you for the kind comments... : ) Katherine, he did see the bowl and wine but has no good idea on maker of either, but will take another look-see...

      Thank you for your help. I have the dimensions: 9 inches high, 8 in. diameter at the top and the base is 6 inches. Now, I am thinking that my grandmother may have received this from her mother since it is so old.

      you're very welcome : ) that size was typically listed in catalogs as a comport or compote, but also sometimes as a footed bowl. These days the term 'compote' is most widely used...

      That's very kind of you, TallCakes. You are such an asset to this site with your extensive knowledge and generous help. :)

      Can anyone tell me how to read the entire comment. I can only read up to the part that is posted but I believe there is more to read!
    9. TallCakes TallCakes, 6 years ago
      maybe I've caused confusion with the use of the '...' at the end of my comment. That was just my way of ending the comment with the '...' intended to indicate that the story/explanation could possibly continue with more data... but then to continue would cheat the OP of the chance to do their own extended research. : )

      Oh me oh my, I just noticed, the "he" part of that comment, sorry TallCakes, SIR!!! :))) Cakes, you know, females and cake, sorry, sorry, sorry!!!

      The bowl, please, Sir TallCakes? *groveling* :)

      I have been researching these items for many reasons but one is to find out the value for insurance. I have just seen this item being sold for $12 on a website. I thought since it was so old it would be worth much more. So much for insuring it! I think it is a marvelous piece and am happy to know more about it but will no longer worry about using it or insuring it.
