The glass houses in Pittsburgh were the foremost producers of table glass in America beginning in the 1810's. All of the glass was hand blown and then hand cut. The compote and celery vases shown were cut in the distinctive "strawberry diamond" pattern. It was all lead glass of substantial weight and thickness which gave it a beautiful ring when struck. The celery vases are an exact pair which is uncommon and very desirable. And at a height of 8" they are an unusual impressive large size. All three pieces are in excellent condition. This represents a very small part of our early 1800's glass inventory.
