Web Description: 
A Pairpoint advertisement of July 1915 describes “an odd floral pattern just arrived from the factory known as the ‘Murillo.’ It is a clever combination of deep and light cutting in a dull and polished finish that produces an exceedingly pleasing effect. It is made in a wide variety of items.” This pattern remained in the company’s line for at least 15 years.
