Maybe I need to look for something other than 'lace' edge but I've done image searches on several occasions and not seen this particular edge.  

It's just a bit more than 7" across.    (... that's like 10" in 'antiquerose-inches'  ;D)

TIA.

Nothing in the Milk Glass Society gallery that matches? http://www.nmgcs.org/

My wife's first thought was Imperial as well, but I haven't found a match in online catalogs, etc.  Initial searches concentrated on the more well known milk glass companies... Westmoreland, Imperial, Mosser, Dunbar, Fostoria, Fenton, etc., without much luck.  We think it's old, at least depression if not earlier.

Thanks for the link.  I've been there before but not gone through all the galleries.  Will get back there.

This looks like our "Scroll and Eye," made in the mid 1950s.

BINGO!, We have a winner!  Yes, Many thanks.  Although google searching for "scroll and eye" turned up several that were not this pattern I found several listed as Fenton Scroll and Eye that were a match, one on ebay looked to an identical piece.   I need to go back through Fenton's catalog and see where I missed it.

EDIT: Well I may have jumped to conclusions regarding the maker.  That very pattern for this shape I've now see attributed to three makers; Atterbury, Challinor Taylor, and Fenton.  Still more research to do I guess ;)

If James thinks it's Fenton I'd go with that, to be honest.

Hello

I would bet on Jim too.  Based on their catalogs, it is not CT's version.

Ah, I fully missed the connection with "looks like our "Scroll and Eye,"" and James's signature association to Fenton.   :-[

Thanks James  :thup:
