    This pattern of teardrops is more widely known by the AKA of Martha's Tears rather than the OMN of Fulton. The larger size shown here is more rare than the petite size; I had the small one for several years before I was able to acquire the larger sample.

    OMN: Fulton
    MFG: Brilliant Glass Company
    YOP: 1889
    AKA: Martha's Tears
    Size: 10-1/2" OD x 5-3/4" H; 8-7/8" OD x 5-1/4" H; 7-1/2" OD x 4-3/4" H

      surprised myself when I ran upon this pattern is yet another size. I now have added a medium size salver to this set measuring 8-7/8" OD x 5-1/4" H. I find myself paying more attention to sizes in various patterns these days. I need to update the photos...
