This water carafe is cut in the Wheeler pattern, which originated around 1885. This pattern was made until the turn of the century in a variety of shapes and sizes. Though simple to cut and similar to patterns from other cutting shops, this pattern, unique to Mt. Washington, was very popular with customers.
