Fragments of this pattern have been found at the Boston & Sandwich factory site (see "American Glass, 1760-1930," p. 421). However, chemical testing of a translucent light blue creamer in this pattern in the collection of the Toledo Museum of Art has indicated non-lead glass, suggesting a possible European origin.
