    The footed bowl (or low footed compote) on left is by US Glass Company, ca. 1891, collectors call it "Heavy Gothic", original name was simply a number in the 15,000 series which I cannot recall off the top of my head. These were also sold with lids. I have the same bowl (mine is about 5", now sure what yours measures) with its original lid.
    Butter dish is by Bryce, Higbee. I'm not sure what to call the pattern, as I don't know the OMN. Wayne and Lola Higbee identify this pattern in their book as Charm, which it is NOT. The pattern shows up in Butler Brothers assortments starting in the 1890s and continues to be shown past 1900.

    Bryce, Higbee glass is one of my in depth research projects and I plan to write some articles and publish them in the near future.
