One unusual decoration on Mt. Washington glass depicts Brownie figures. These figures were created by the author/illustrator Palmer Cox. Brownies were extremely popular within a few years after Cox’s book was published in 1887. Mt. Washington used Brownies principally on their Napoli art glass. This is the only piece of Royal Flemish glass with Brownie decoration.
