The Boston and Sandwich Glass Company was incorporated in 1826 in Sandwich, Massachusetts, by Deming Jarves. The factory was closed in 1888 amid disputes with a newly formed glass-makers' labor union. The Boston & Sandwich factory was one of the earliest to produce pressed glass in America.

This rare and beautiful bowl is the 'Roman Rosette" pattern, circa 1830-1850, in opalescent flint glass. This pattern can be found in cup plates and honey dishes and was made in clear as well as some colored glass. The bowl measures 6 1/4" across and 1 1/8" in depth. There are no cracks or repairs; three chips and minor nicks can be seen on the saw-tooth edge; this is very common with early American flint glass (see last three photos for close-up). Great piece of Boston & Sandwich glass.
