These 2 cruets have the original stoppers. They are 6.25 inches tall by 3 inches across. The cruets are made of heavy mold blown glass. There is a pontil mark on the bottom of each cruet. The tips of the stoppers are not smooth, but that is typical of cruet stoppers of this era.
The pattern, Feather Medallion is also known as Snow Star. The pattern features fans, sunbursts, and bars. The stopper with the cruet is the original stopper. This pattern was made by Bryce Higbee in 1905. The pattern was made in clear glass only. An extended table service was made in this pattern. Unlike many patterns of the EAPG era, this pattern has not been reproduced.
The cruets have been black light tested and glow under the UV. There are no chips or cracks and there is no cloudiness. There are some internal stress marks on the handles; however, this is the result of the manufacturing process and is not considered damage.
