Greetings -
This wonderful blue panel/window hangs in my bedroom window. I'm not sure of its age or manufacture, but best guess is Boston & Sandwich, circa 1860. Any opinion and/or expertise would be appreciated. The panel size is 44" x 14". Thanks.
PS: I was recently fortunate enough to purchase a similar red panel (pictured) from a sea captain's estate in Barnegat, NJ.

    In the time period this was made "etching" referred to what what we now call "frosting" ie: which is found on patterns such as "Three Face", "Frosted Lion", and "Westward Ho." This was achieved by acid vapors. The result is a smooth, satin like finish. Intricate designs were etched onto glassware too, such as patterns like "Flamingo Habitat" and "Nestlings" To cut through a layer of glass is engraving or what is now called "cut to clear"

    Victorian copper wheel engravings are not always straight; in fact, they are invariably flowing vines, berries, and fern designs.
