Emerald green pressed lead glass vase; elongated conical shape with fluted rim and six panels around sides, each containing a raised circle above a loop; hollow base with hexagonal knop and foot.
This vase may be a twentieth-century reproduction of a mid-nineteenth-century pattern. (Note: Vases such as this one reproduced in "American and European Pressed Glass in The Corning Museum of Glass" (p. 230) are said to date from after 1875 because they have been pressed in one piece.)
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
