This little vase is 5 1/8" high. It is more slender than my images suggest. It is made of fairly thick glass and heavy for its size. There are four vertical mold lines. The lower part of the vase has a pressed pattern design and the upper portion has an etched flowers (two) and vines pattern. I took a look but could not find this pattern, though it is pretty simple. A $.49 thrift shop find today. When I found it, it was gray, so opaque that I could not see through it. Maybe from the home of a smoker. I was afraid it would turn out to have been etched and worn from use, but it cleaned up and looks brand new. I cannot find any wear on it. It must have sat on a shelf for decades to acquire the level of grime. A very pleasant little vase.
Based on a discussion here https://www.antiquers.com/threads/eapg-pattern-and-maker-id-help-please.45027/, it looks like a similar pattern was made by several American makers ca 1916-1930s, Cambridge #4060, McKee #98, Duncan & Miller #86.... Thanks to TallCakes who provided the information in that discussion! This is could be considered pressed and cut glass versus EAPG but the dividing line is blurry, so putting it in the EAPG category.
