Covered dish: Deer on Fallen Tree Base
Overall: 5 1/4 x 6 5/8 x 3 1/8 in. ( 13.3 x 16.8 x 7.9 cm )
in relief: on base: "[in script] The E.C. Flaccus Co. /[in block letters] WHEELING W. VA."
Opaque white pressed glass covered dish; rounded oblong shape; cover with running deer or dog; base depicts field with grasses, flowers, branches and stumps. Maker's mark impressed on underside of base.
The E.C. Flaccus Company, run by Edward C. Flaccus, began around 1898 when Edward split off from the family grocery business, G.C. Flaccus & Son. The Flaccus firm did not actually manufacture glass -- it is possible that objects with the E.C. Flaccus mark were actually made by the C.L. Flaccus Glass Co. in Tarentum, Pennsylvania.
