This vase is 7" high x 5" widest diameter. It is painted EAPG milk glass. These used to be quite common in US thrift shops, even though there were about 100 years old. Often called "Goofus Glass". I have not seen an example in several years in the wild. They were often found in clear and milk glass with the paint removed. Clear glass was more common than milk glass. I seldom saw one with as much paint remaining on it as this one has. It is a bit dusty but I have never washed it in the 15-20 years I have had it, for fear of taking off more paint. These vases were probably painted in sweat shops by young women and small children. Link below courtesy of TallCakes.
