This high standard pattern glass compote is made in the Sprig pattern and is c. 1885. This pattern was produced by Bryce, Higbee & Co., Pittsburgh, PA. This is a huge and substantial compote that stands 8 inches tall and has a bowl diameter of 9 3/4 inches. The standard has three rings on the stem and though it looks like there might be a wafer joining two parts of the stem, there is no wafer and the mould line goes through the stem and the rings without interruption. There is one tiny flake on one of the panels at the point. There are no other chips or cracks. The pattern is one of alternating plain panels and panels that are decorated with a single stem of foliage. The glass is bright and has no purple tinging.
