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.
