Vicki's the bomb!

That is Wonderful Kathy! You to have a fantastic "eye" for quality! :)

Just an FYI, what you have there, if you didn't already know is commonly called "EAPG" in our "glass speak" It stands for "Early American Pattern Glass" meaning pressed not cut.

Just a short history on the subject: EAPG was made as an affordable alternative to the then, very expensive "AB CUT" glass! (American Brilliant Period Cut glass)

This allowed everyone to have something wonderful, that looked very much like the more expensive versions. It's even more fun to me, in that fact that it became it's own new and innovative category in the history of American Glass!

There are thousands of very interesting, beautiful and unusual patterns, shapes, even glass types, some being the much sought after, rare Flint variety - in the pressed EAPG patterns! ( Most that I have found are tumblers).

For more information on this fantastic and fun category of Glass you can go to: http://www.eapgs.org/ The Early American Pattern Glass Society!

That is lovely, Kathy!

Thank Vicki and Chris for sharing all your knowledge.

Here is the vase I had my eye on. It was very dirty and had much film but I was intrigued by it's shape.

I believe I have found it to be An Early American Westmoreland Pressed Glass Vase  early 1900's Paddle Wheel Pattern.

Thanks again, from the novice.  Good eye, not enough knowledge : )

Bingo Bonnie! Here is a great reference to look through. You will have to find and decide if it's your maker. ( fingers crossed for you) :)

I do see a star/asterisk type mark in centers

Comment by BikerBonnie on February 10, 2015 at 9:18am

Vicki, thank you so much for reply.  I agree it is gorgeous dish. Not something I collect, but I like pretty things.  I can't see a mark though.  And I will sell, the dish if I can.  So sorry too hear about the Great Uncle.  My Dad is WW11, 91, bless his sweet soul, he is having a hard time dealing with life, but he is a "trooper"
