This is pattern no. 76 and it has a number of more commonly known aliases: Hobbs’ Centennial, Viking, Bearded Head, Bearded Prophet, and Old Man of the Mountain(s).
The piece stands approximately 6 1/4 inches from the table top to the top of the helmet. The diameter of the opening is 5 inches. I don’t know if this is a comport/compote, butter dish or cheese dish.
I gather from my handy dandy book – American Pattern Glass Table Sets by Cathy and Gene Florence – that pieces in this pattern include a butter dish, sugar with lid, creamer, spooner and celery vase.
The finial has the face on both sides and the feet are also decorated with the face. Pretty neat piece!
