Anyone recognize this pattern?

Comment by Rustic Way Lane on September 13, 2016 at 8:35pm

Hi Vicki!  Thank you so much for your information!  This is my "McKee Sunburst" Berry Creamer & Open Berry Sugar.  My husband and I actually run an Etsy shop for vintage items are always coming by these treasures.  If I could keep every piece I find, he would be in trouble!  But alas...space is a premium.  I do love playing with these pieces and learning as much as I can while they are visiting!   Such eye candy!

Right now I am interested in starting a collection of emerald green and ruby red glass for my Christmas table.  A piece at a time!  I'm sure those sites offered here will help tremendously.  Thank you again!  :)

Hi Rustic - Your very welcome! On your question ie.. "berry" items.

What you likely have is EAPG glassware. (Early American Pattern Glass) - ( ca. 1850's to 1920 roughly). This was early American pressed glass, that came in hundreds of cool and interesting patterns and all different sorts of "sets". One of those "table ware sets" would be the "Berry set" This usually included a large serving bowl, several small bowls for individual servings and sugar and creamer to match. Hense,, your "Berry cream and sugar"! And yes, some of these were in fact "shakers" which were used for powdered sugar to shake onto the berries along with the cream!

I'd love to see a pic of your set! There is at least one link above for EAPG glasware, it happens to be a favorite of mine!

If your interested, once you ID which pattern you have, you could hunt for the rest of the set to match! Just one of many reasons I love that type of glass!

Comment by Rustic Way Lane on September 13, 2016 at 1:01pm

Thank you, Vicki!  I will definitely check out those links!  :)

I have another question that I cant seem to find the answer to.  What exactly is a berry creamer and a berry sugar?  I've read that some of the berry sugars were shakers, but a McKee set that I have is identified as a "Berry Creamer & Sugar."  I'm assuming it's because they are wider than the typical creamer and sugar and could potentially accommodate berries?  

Thank you again for the welcome, and for the advise!  :)

Thank you, Vicki for so much useful and interesting info.  Not surprised you mentioned Ohio.  My grandmother was from Cleveland.  It could have belonged to my great-grandmother for all I know.  My grandmother was born in 1899 for what it's worth.  I'm excited to do more research now thanks to you and your expertise.

Yes indeed Bonnie! It is an American Elegant Depression era Rolled Edge console bowl! and it's gorgeous Roseanne!

Lucky You! The blue is amazing, and I'm thinking it was Tiffin Glass co. of Ohio that made yours! The time period of this glassware is the American Depression era - ca. 1920's to early 1940's. The style to is Depression glass, however yours we call "Elegant" as apposed to the common wares of the same period.

Some of our better companies continued to make a much higher quality glassware for those who could still afford such wares.

This is evidenced by the "ground or machined base" if you turn your bowl over, you will see a very "clean" looking base that would appear to be blown, though it is in fact pressed glass, but hand finished to have the appearance of blown glassware! Also noted is the fine detail of the gold or gilt edge decoration, which may or may not have been done by the manufacturing company. Many of our Elegant pieces were "farmed out" to other companies that specialized in decoration such as yours, only. Others did it themselves in-house.

Thankfully there is an abundance of info now available to us both online and in print. If you will look above this post, to the left you will find our group links to help you ID your glassware.

 Just find one that notes "Elegant" depression glass and I'm sure you will be able to ID yours fairly easily!

Thank you for sharing your lovely Heirloom with us and welcome to Glass Hounds! We are happy to have you! :)

it looks like a rolled edge console

Comment by Roseanne McLoughlin on September 12, 2016 at 9:26pm

Wondering if anyone has any ideas about this bowl.  I believe it's pressed glass.  It belonged to my grandmother (I'm 67), but not sure how long she had it.  It sits on a black porcelain pedestal with gold-painted trim.  The bowl itself is edged in an engraved pattern in some form of gold.  Curious as to what style or period it might belong if any.
