Title EAPG PATTERN GLASS: Scarce Fern Garland Syrup.
Seller ID 96-0564
Crystal. Non-flint. Domed, nickelplated steel lid with tab thumb handle and darkened plaster under the inner rim. Mold blown with cut-and-shut pontil. McKee Glass Co. This pattern is actually McKee's Colonial No. 20 (a pattern in the Prescut line introduced in 1905) with the decorative addition of a flower impressedbetween fern leaves in each panel. Stout (The Complete Book of McKee Glass, p. 247) shows this syrup in the unadorned No.20 pattern in her section on Prescut, but with a different style top. McKee, as did other manufacturers C. 1900, used the same top as the one offered here on many of its syrups & molasses cans. Since this syrup is not marked Prescut (as all pieces in the line supposedly were) and there is no actual documentation of when Fern Garland was produced, dating this syrup presents a problem. Roughness at the bottom of 3 of the edges dividing the panels, grizzling around the throat in-the-making, corrosion spots on & in the metal top & wear on its tab handle o/w Fine (No defects). Scarce. $
