I have a small collection of vintage glass lion items.  I have Gillinder and Fostoria pieces and have long been seeking a piece from Richards & Hartley, a company from Tarentum, Pennsylvania.  I gather that the piece was introduced in the 1880s.

I came across this piece on a recent trip to Boston.  First time I have seen the pattern in the wild.  It was larger than I wanted, but I couldn’t take a pass.

The pattern is called Proud Lion and is also known as Tiny Lion.

The lion’s features aren’t particularly detailed, but it is a grand piece!
