Gift of Florence Rogers Dietrich
According to the accession records, this set has been attributed to Brooklyn's Greenpoint Glassworks (working 1873-1880) and to Isaac Duval of Wellsburg, West Va. (working 1813-23). The former is more likely, given the style of the set.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
