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).

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 of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 – 1914)
