Clambroth Whites & Opaque Blues are Generally Attributed to American Sandwich Glass Ca. 1840-60's , BUT were also copied by the French Ca. 1870 as "Blue Opaline Glass". I believe it to be French.
Condition of Glass components are Superb with a couple of normal green age spots on the brass frame. The White Glass Leaf tray on the left is ever so slightly loose in the plaster mounted brass socket, 1/8 of an inch wiggle. Right Leaf is still tight.
