This and other Pairpoint Corporation floral patterns were popular. They were much simpler than the elaborate cut glass that had been in production since the 1880s. The manager of the decorating department, Albert Steffin, who patented this pattern in 1909, was one of the first designers to recognize that tastes were changing to include simpler patterns.
