Title PATTERN GLASS: MIOTON - TYPE GOBLET WITH RINGED STEM.
Seller ID 91-1000
Crystal. Non-flint. Round stem. Flutes are topped by scallops. Maker unknown. Thispattern is not McKee & Brothers' Mioton, which was made in flint glass and is consistently shown in their catalogs with a hexagonal stem whether plain or ringed from 1859/60 thru 1880. Ruth Lee Webb got it right in her EAPG where she correctly identifies a McKee goblet. The confusion begins latterwith Millard who in Bk. 1 shows a flint, ringed goblet without attribution that is consistent with McKee's catalogs, but in Bk. 2 applies Mioton to two goblets with round stems & rings, one of which be described as having scallops at the top of the flutes. Also in Bk. 2 he shows a goblet with a round stem he names Short Loops, which is light and has short loops, low on the bowl. This goblet is better shown in Metz Bk. 1 where it appears without scallops & the flutes lower on the bowl. Metz (Bk. 1) shows a McKee type goblet as Mioton, but says Millard shows it with a ring stem. Millard's, however, has a round stem. Whatever the case, there is noevidence that the goblet offered here is attributable to McKee. Heat checks are present in the glass o/w Fine (No defects).
