Dish: footed salt
Overall: 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 in. ( 7 x 7 cm )
Colorless pressed lead glass footed salt with round bowl with scalloped rim, vertical ribbing from top to bottom, and vine with stylized leaves and flowers circling bowl (Ribbed Leaf or Bellflower pattern).
This pattern is known to have been produced by M'Kee and Brothers from the mid-1860s to the early 1870s; however, this extremely popular pattern may have been produced during this period by other Midwest glass factories as well. (See "American Glass, 1760-1930: The Toledo Museum of Art," p. 492.)
