This heavy crystal vase is made in the Berlin or Reeded Waffle pattern. The vase is 6 inches tall and 3.5 inches wide. The Berlin pattern was introduced by Adams & Co in 1874. In the 1880s Bryce Brothers produced it as Pattern 87. In 1891 U. S. Glass produced the pattern. U.S. Glass produced the pattern in an extended table service, including a cracker jar. Westmoreland Specialty Co. produced the pattern as #124 for F. W. Woolworth. The pattern was not made after 1924. The vase also called Reeded Bands, was produced in pink, green, and teal as well as celery.
This piece is a celery vase which was used to hold stalks of celery upright. Celery was delicacy in the Victorian era because it was difficult to produce and as a result, was expensive. Celery was served to impress important guests and was displayed on the table in a vase. The celery vase also doubled as a table centerpiece.
This vase is very clear and has no chips, cracks, or flakes, but it does have tiny air bubbles. The vase has been black light tested and glowed canary yellow under the light.
