I don't think we should necessarily presume it's that old - although it may well turn out to be so.    How many of those small turret feet are there, and what wear do they show, if any?     What is the extent of wear on the inside of the dish?        Is the glass fine and clear, or are there small bubbles - and even possibly seeds?       Is the entirre pattern in relief - as opposed to below the glass surface (as in much pressed glass)? - and where was the piece sourced from?  :)
