A Community For People Who Buy, Sell or Collect Antiques, Collectibles and Art

These have been in my family for generations - family history says that they were bought at a World's Fair in the 1800's.

Two dessert bowls and serving tray with bas-relief Bison, Antelope & Log Cabin.  One bowl has a crack on the bottom, doesn't extend up the sides.

I'm curious about the history, and of course - the value.  Are we talking ebay or Shotheby's? Goodwill?  (nah, wouldn't give them away nor sell them for anything less than a mortgage payment...)

Made by Gillinder, ca 1879. EAPG (Early American Pattern Glass) "Western Ho" Tray with tab handles, and footed custards.  http://www.tias.com/14998/PictPage/3923767877.html  www.Replacements.com might have additional details.

Hi Howard,

You have the "Westward Ho" pattern by Gillinder & Sons of Philadelphia. Gillinder was at the 1876 Philadelphia Exhibition showing off their wares and making some wares on premises. This particular pattern dates to c.1879. There are definitely reproductions floating around, but it is good news that yours have been in your family for a long time.
There are several pieces for sale online if you want to check prices. Maybe something in the neighborhood of $125 for the tray. Are those cups or compotes? Can you include some measurements of those? Price depends on what they are.

Thank you both -

It's interesting to know the history. The cuppy-thingies are not compotes, they're smaller - I think I saw them called sherbets. 

Sounds like they'll stay in my family a little longer.   :-)

Good for you! They are really great pieces. I have a lion compote and "Ruth the Gleaner" figurine also by Gillinder.

Did you check the Replacements link I provided?  I just did. By looking at the other pieces you can get an idea of what yours are worth. I found the "tray", if it's 12-7/8" handle to handle, it's called a Bread Tray, out of stock.  A short sherbet measures 4" high. Shortest compote I saw was 5" high and up. https://www.replacements.com/p/gillinder-westward-ho-bread-tray/gis...
