    read what breezie has to say about this and disregard all the rest....she is spot on with stuff like this. since it "rings" it is not pressed glass, fruit compote...check....lead crystal...check....cut glass...check....not seam lines...check.... nice piece, but no longer "useful" thus many people would dump it cheap as it takes up "space"...my father was like that....his motto was "there is beauty in function".

    boy it sure is similar....but it might also be a case of "technique" and taste of the time. Artists...technicians really...learn how to reproduce a theme or style and can do it almost in their sleep.

    As a know nothing about glass guy, I just have two bits to add. My mother had an item very much like yours, that had been in the family for ever it seemed like.
    She decided to get it checked out by an expert to see just what information she might get. The expert lady said that it was a premium item. I know we had a clock
    that was acquired by the family in the 1870's for purchasing a certain amount of cow feed. Well, this item was the same deal, you buy so much flour or what
    ever, and you get the plate etc. The expert lady said that some of our best antiques started out that way. Not saying that's what yours is, just that it's an angle
    to explore if you are interested.
    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.

    Your covered compote or candy jar is a piece of German crystal. Here is one with a label and the same exact pattern. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bleikristall-Etched-German-Chrystal-Dish-Fruit-Design-Compote-Beautiful-/151148802529?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item23312b b1

    PS- Kate, the same goes for your bowl. Hope this helps.
