“Mary Gregory” glassware became popular in the 1920s and continues to be sold today. Supposedly the work of a single woman employed at the Boston and Sandwich Glass Company in Cape Cod, it featured white enamel scenes and figures painted on colored glass vases, plates, pitchers, and goblets. This attribution turned out to be a marketing scheme designed to sell work produced by many companies based on 19th-century English cameo glass.
