I think it is called the Wedding Ring pattern.
Hopefully, someone more 'in the know' will be able to confirm and also give you a date.  :)

L.G Wright did not actually make glass. They had it made for them by various producers - Westmoreland was one of them (a major one).

Hartmann Glasmarkenlexikon says Westmoreland  :)
Pamela
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)
