Hi  -  assume this is a pressed item?   
assuming that's wheel-engraved decoration. it looks similar in some ways to the Victorian fern decoration, so date wise it might be second half C19.          Can you comment please on the extent of wear and any damage.
It looks almost too shallow for a vase....   wonder if it was intended as a container for something  -  presumably there's no evidence of a support or lip for a lid?
Might this have had some connection with sugar, butter, or ice even do you think.

Assume your subject description refers to those concentric circles around the sides  -  believe that State side you also refer to ground/polished oval or circular depressions in the glass as bull's eyes or thumb prints  -  which this side we tend to call punties or printies (similar to the circular depression on the base of blown glass, where the pontil scar has been removed).

Hello:

You have the base to a sugar bowl - the lid is missing.  The manufacturer was Dalzell, Gilmore & Leighton of Findlay, Ohio and the pattern is called Corrigan by collectors.  The company would have just given it a number.  Time frame for its introduction would be the 1890s.  This would be an example of the glass collecting category called EAPG - Early American Pattern Glass.

Hello again

The manufacturer's name for this pattern was 57D and it was introduced in 1895.
