  I bought this etched Oyster and Pearl bowl at an antique mall in Illinois.  How often were they etched?  I assume it was an addition done at another factory after the bowl was made.

These embellishemnts look "cut" rather than "etched." Chances are excellent that this was done in Canada. I do talk about this in our books, but if you need more info, let me know. Barbara
Thank you so much for replying.  I did find the chapter in your book, but I would love to hear any more information that you might have.  The cut design makes this bowl more special to me.  Now if I can only find a matching sandwich platter... :)
The Canadian government placed tarrifs on American-made glassware that was imported for resale. However, if the glass was to be "decorated" by Canadian artisans these tarrifs were waived. Today we have an interesting assortment of cuts on American-made glassware that largely came from our creative neighbors to the north. The Internet and our general mobility has brought lots of it back to the US. As many of these glass cutters were simply individuals working in a garage or workshop trying to make a few extra dollars, much of the history is lost. We don't know who made what and if any of the designs were named. Now a huge exception is the Corn Flower cut, a motif prized by Canadians.
