Hi all!  The comport above is mine, and thank your Trad Jazz for your contact.  I can now see that the glass is, in fact, pressed glass not cut - there are two mold lines on the stem.  I shall post photos and more info on it later.

(nice to "see" you all again!)
Dear Chloe, Thank you for your reply. Looking forward to seeing your photos and info.  At some point shortly as already mentioned here there will be photos posted of the large compote that has been mentioned earlier in this posting. Regards Traditional Jazz.

Cut items can be mould blown or even pressed to form the initial shape before they are cut, so with Chole's bowl the question is how is the pattern on the body formed.

Dear Everyone at The Glass Message Board, Another further observation. I have a small compote whose pattern seems to be identical to the compote shown at The Oxford Tea Party except that the only similaties are in the bowls of these two compotes. The foot on the small compote that i have is similar to the Molineux and Webb Greek Key pattern compotes. Also the compote that i have seems to have been made in a eight part mould. Which i would think that this was made around 1845 to 1855 period. As later compotes seemed to be made in four part, three part and two part moulds. Still waiting for photos from Chloe. Regards Tradional Jazz.
