This is a Remarkable, and Quite Rare piece of antique Eapg - Early American Pattern Glass! This Lovely, Victorian glass spooner features an amazing detailed fuchsia-type flower design, with an overlapping leafy vine winding its' way around! Little information is available on this Very old, antique glass pattern, though, I did find it in references by both 'Milliard', and 'Lee', and also the 2nd Edition of 'Reilly and Jenks' - all calling it "Clematis" manufactured in the 1870s by an unknown maker ( possibly Boston & Sandwich?) This Beautiful antique glass spoon holder measures 5 5/8 inches tall X 3 3/8 inches across the scalloped top rim. In Excellent Condition for its' age of 140 years - with no chips or cracks, just the usual characteristics of the Victorian era glass manufacture process, ie. tiny bubbles, etc. The glass is clear and bright, with just a tiny bit of cloudiness, only in the very bottom. It also has a bit of a 'lean' to it, as well, which only adds to its' Charm! This antique glass glows a strong yellow-green under uv blacklight to further verify age! A delightful pattern glass spooner - Certainly one of the Very few remaining in this Old pattern!
