This gorgeous little antique jelly compote is the Open Rose, aka Moss Rose, eapg pattern, circa 1870s, the manufacturer is unknown. This sweet little compote (perhaps, a pedestal dessert/berry bowl) has remnants of green paint on the raised leaves of the pretty rose pattern. This is a rare (undocumented) item in this 'Open Rose' pattern, and even more unusual to find a decorated piece! This Victorian glass compote is in amazing condition for it's 140+ years, the glass is clear and bright, and there are no chips or cracks, only a few very light surface scratches! It has a "wafer connection", a Victorian glass making method of joining two separate pieces of glass together with a 'wafer' of molten glass. It measures 3 3/4 inches tall x 4 1/2 inches across the scalloped top rim, and glows soft yellow-green under u.v. light to further verify age. This is an exceptional addition to any antique glass collection, and, I suspect you may never see another one like it.
