The Dorchester Vase (1852)

In their June 1852 issue, Scientific American published a small note regarding this ‘relic of a by-gone age’. While its present whereabouts are unknown, it was kept for a while by the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. It appears that it was found stuck in some rock material during an excavation in Massachusetts. Can anyone identify the pattern or match it to a known style? Where is this vase now?
