Tulip, Millersburg

Imagine how many of these have been passed by because they are so plain. In reality this is an extremely rare Millersburg compote. It appears to be the same mold, but without the interior pattern, as Millersburg's Flowering Vine.

This amethyst example was photographed while in a private collection. A marigold example, 8 3/4 inches tall, sold for $675 in 1997. An 8-inch example in marigold brought $1,600 in 2003.

In 2015, an amethyst example sold for $750.
