    Got this for my parent a couple Christmases back.
    The BOTTOM, not the upper portion but the portion that touches a table, is embossed with leaves-- something I found fascinatingly unique.
    The edge is an orangish-gold on the upper portion and its exterior is full of designs.

    Essentially, I'd like to know:
    When was this piece produced?
    Who produced it?
    Where was it produced?
    What made the dish's rim different?
    What is this piece called (other than beautiful?) :P

      L. G. Wright Glass 'Wild Rose'. Wright didn't make glass but contracted with various glass makers to make their glass using Wright's molds; possibly Fenton made for Wright. Sometimes these are marked; look carefully on bottom for encircled 'W'.

      Wow, you knew that one quickly.
      It's unmarked.

      Thanks!

      Wright's molds were sold of around 1999 and many went to various holders intending to use them in production. I don't know for sure about this small compote; possibly formed from a goblet.

      "Compote?"
    5. TallCakes TallCakes, 6 years ago
      a compote is a bowl on a pedestal. that might also explain the amber rim; the goblet was removed from the mold, and the glass reheated to stretch and crimp to form the compote. red glass is very heat sensitive; thus the amber rim may have resulted from the reheating and cooling process...

      So knowledgeable you are! Thanks!

      Not sure why it got recatergorized into early American pattern-glass as that should be things like early American salt-dips.
    8. TallCakes TallCakes, 6 years ago
      agreed, it's not EAPG... the subcategories are a bit limited, and this should technically be in a pressed glass subcategory as it is fairly modern pressed glass. EAPG (Early American Pattern Glass) is called that because of the extended table service (pattern) sets of multiple forms with the same motifs.
    9. SpiritBear, 6 years ago
      I decided to recategorize it into No Sub-Category. I will continue to do so if they continue to move it unless they take it down.

      I just wanted to say Nice pics in the Snow --- BUT be careful as taking Glass outside to a different temperature can cause it too break, or have an internal break. So a real word of caution. I would never take my glass outside to put in my car ( in winter here) unless it has a warm big blanket around it....as I do not want to take any chances at all !!!
    11. SpiritBear, 6 years ago
      Thanks for the concern. But I brought it into the mudroom, which is cold. I then took it outside, held onto it till it acclimated and set it down to take the pics-- and reversed the process.
      I've never had a fracture. :)
      I did that with this very rare local bottle which has been in the ground for well over a century:

      A very stained but very hard to find 1868-1881 druggist bottle (the man never seemed to emboss his bottles, is our guess, as so few are found.)
