This green glass Mary Gregory vase is 6.75" tall, 3 ⅛" across its mouth and 2" across the smallest portion of the base upon which the vase stands. Please note the second photo showing detail on the girl's face. It looks as if the paint was scratched. It is visible when looking at the glass without magnification. The rim of the glass has worn gold trim. Please let me know if you require more photos or if you have any questions.
As far as age goes, I am estimating this piece to be from the latter end of the early 1900s production when the enamel was built up and made more detailed by successive firings. This vase is also more than likely from the States or England as clear glass with white and colored enamel point toward a European earlier production date, and this glass is colored with all white enamel.

for their valuable information on Mary Gregory glass.
They write: The term 'Mary Gregory' indicates a style of glass rather than a manufacturer. It originates from the myth that a lady in [the] USA named Mary Gregory painted scenes of children on thousands of items of glassware. It is now known that this style of glass originated from Bohemia, not America. Mary Gregory did actually live in America, and worked for the Boston and Sandwich Glass company during the 1880s, but she painted landscapes, not children.
