The cut decoration on this vase and on the nearby decanter and compote is a variation on the strawberry diamond-and-fan pattern, the most popular cut-glass pattern in the United States in the early nineteenth century. All of these pieces emulate the richly cut tableware
of the Anglo-Irish tradition.
