I believe its a Tiffin #179 compote which came in two sizes. If you want to be a stickler for accuracy though its a U.S. Glass piece made prior to the all U.S. Glass Company production being named Tiffin beginning in September 1927. Prior to that it was just USG. These were made in Factory G (Glassport) & supposedly Decorated at Factory D (Pittsburgh). I took a quick shot of one I have to show this type of stencil decoration was used. Ken
