Offering an antique relish serving boat, this stunning celery canoe shape dish is pictured on page 52 of The Years of Duncan by Gail Krause and labeled as Octagon Rosette celery boat. It is from an 1884 catalog of George Duncan & Sons. As is often the case in antique glassware, there are conflicting reports that Tarentum and also Richards & Hartley made a similar boat dish under the pattern name of Daisy and Button. EAPG, early American pressed pattern glass is mostly over 100 years old now and so very collectible. This relish almost looks like cut glass, as the facets catch the light so nicely. Pile it high with pickles or olives, celery and carrots or as a centerpiece filled with flowers and hear the raves.
This deeply pressed serving dish is 12 7/8" long and stands 2" high at it's middle, rising somewhat at each end. It is in good vintage condition with no cracks or discolorations and the only flaw I can find is a tiny flea bite, or roughness at top edge on one end.
