EAPG Covered Compote Bowl, Bryce Walker and Co., Imperial, Maltese Cross, Pressed Glass, Ladder and Diamond Pattern, 1870s, Centerpiece, Antique

A gorgeous antique EAPG (Early American Pressed Glass) compote bowl by Bryce, Walker and Company. This bowl dates from the 1870s and is pressed and tooled glass. The pattern is called Imperial and consists of a ladder and diamond design. This is hemispherically shaped with a flat scalloped rim and an overall pattern of strawberry diamond design alternating with horizontal bars on the exterior of the body known as 'ladder and diamond or sometimes called 'Jacob's Ladder'. This is attached to a hollow trumpet-shaped foot with vertical panels and a 'ladder and diamond' design around the base. The domed cover is also the 'ladder and diamond' design with a sharply pressed finial in the shape of a Maltese Cross. This piece is museum quality and I only have found one other piece like this, in excellent condition with cover, in The Corning Museum of Glass in Corning N.Y. The bowl is heavy and the glass clear. This would make a wonderful centerpiece. A great gift for a collector of antique glass.

Bryce Brothers Glass Company can be traced back to 1850, when John P Bryce, James Bryce, Robert D. Bryce, and Freed McKee founded Bryce, McKee, and Co. In 1854, the factory became known as Bryce, Richards, and Co. In 1865 it became Bryce, Walker, and Co. Again in 1882 it became known as Bryce Brothers, it retained that company name until it became "Factory B" as part of the new U.S. Glass Company.

This antique compote is in excellent condition. There are no chips, cracks or repairs. It does have utensil marks in the bottom of the bowl from being used. The compote is approximately 150 years old.

This would make a great wedding or holiday gift. A great piece to add to your collection to entertain in style. A wonderful antique compote for the collector of antique glass.
