Did you know that almost every one of the 1300 (or so) EAPG patterns that came with more than a four piece table set, was made in a celery vase???? It is a mystery that so many of these forms were made because surely they didn't serve that much celery in the Victorian era. This pretty pattern, GRAND aka Diamond Medallion was made by Bryce Higbee ca. 1885. It is 7 3/4" tall & $58.
Until the mid 1800s, refined white sugar was a comparatively scarce & expensive luxury. Coarse brown sugar, molasses, sorghum & to a lesser extend, maple sugar & syrup were the sweeteners of the 'everyday housewife'. Syrup pitchers (called "syrups" for short) were originally called molasses cans, or syrup jugs. This is GALLOWAY pattern is by U S Glass Co. made ca 1904. See lots of these early syrups at PatternGlass.com.
