Beautiful EAPG glass vase produced by Bryce Higbee & Company known as the pattern Paris #1900 a.k.a. Zipper Cross or Roughneck. circa 1899 - 1907. In the 1899 edition of China, Glass & Lamps they described the Paris Pattern as an "imitation cut, elegant in design and finish". It is a beautiful pattern named for the French exposition of 1900 and has wonderful zipper cuts up the side to horizontal cuts around the top. It is approximately 6 1/2 inches tall, the top and bottom are approximately 3 inches in diameter and this piece is in good used condition with no nicks, chips, cracks or sickness. There is a tiny piece of ash trapped in the glass and slight tableware to this piece, but that is common with items from this time period. The glass is to bright and reflective to capture a picture. According to the book Bryce, Higbee and J.B. Higbee Glass "Paris is rare to find the trademark bee, and only the ice bucket has been found containing the trademark" New Martinsville glass also produced this pattern in 1919 from acquired molds but according to the book above, the vase is not one of these items. The description given by the China, Glass & Lamps was right with this pattern having the look of cut glass. It is hard to believe something like this can could survive 100 years and yet look so beautiful.
