I still have these pieces. In fact here is a photo of a decanter that I bought and sold with this pattern (I loved the stopper, hollow with the dainty etch on it). Until recently, they remained unnamed. However I came across these punch cups on Etsy and took the opportunity to ask the seller if s/he knew anything about this pattern
As it turns out the pattern is acid etched. Older pieces – 1908-1918. It is called Lotus and was produced by Dorflinger Glass. On Replacements.com they identify a water goblet as part of Kalana line. But my stem has a bit of a bead on it, unlike the Replacements.com stem so I don’t know if it is from the same line.
I don’t know anything about Dorflinger Glass, but here is a link to the Dorflinger Glass Museum page.
I was in Orono this past weekend and the four stems are still there. Now that I know what they are, I might have to have another, more serious peek at them.

This glass is driving me crazy! A year or so ago I saw wine stems in this pattern in Orono. They were costly so I didn’t buy them. I saw two of these at the Courtice flea market recently. They were $7.00 so I thought I’d get them.
I thought that I had seen this pattern in a book. So…..I poured over all my books and found, what I thought was this pattern. It is Bryce Brothers, Etch 410, also known as Tall Fans, Thistle or Asparagus. This is what I remembered. But unfortunately it is close but not quite bang on. Dang! So the mystery is on…what is this etch?
