Olympic, Millersburg

These small compotes are made from the same exterior mold as Millersburg's Leaf and Little Flowers compote, which is a scant three inches tall. The Olympic has a garland design around the inside of the bowl and a star in the center. Prior to 2021 there were two known; one each in amethyst and green. The amethyst sold for $2,850 in 1990, then for $4,600 in 1994. The green one, shown here, is in a private collection.
