I picked this pretty piece up somewhere in Arizona. I have a number of etched relish dishes, which for some reason I never use. I do have a friend however who likes serving ware as a gift. I had her in mind when I bought it.
I learned from the great Elegant and Everyday Glass Forum that the handles are called Georgian. I also learned that an ad for this relish was found in James Measell’s book, New Martinsville Glass, 1900-1944, which identified this relish as line number 37. Other New Martinsville company ads also identified another pattern as 37. The poster in the Forum identifies this particular piece as 37/4.
The large baskets of flowers in the etch are very pretty. I have a bowl, and a creamer/sugar set with this etch, but it looks different on the different shapes. Pretty, regardless of the shape, though.
