Hi Ray, That is so cool! I think it is a condiments tray - it would have held, maybe three bottles for serving various things like mustard, ketchup, etc..
I've never seen such an ornate one before, it's gorgeous! ( most are made of silver plate - think Pickle castor) My guess would be quite old, ca. 1850-1880. Might be US, EAPG ( Early American Pattern Glass), or it could be English.
It's so fancy, I think I would check out "Sandwich Glass" as well. They were the Very best American maker of glass in our history, and some of their pieces are worth quite a bit!
I believe we have a link, on the group main page, upper left corner for the EAPG society website. It may be well worth your time to post these photos on their free blog/Forum pages.
For your sake, I hope it is! Super awesome find!
Thanks for the info., much appreciated!
