I have this beautiful bowl and dish that I believe is a set. The dish is 12 inches in diameter, the bowl is 8.5 inches in diameter and 3.5 inches tall. I believe the pattern is Cube (Block) and that it is cut glass (I see no seams). I also see a few very tiny air bubbles in the glass. I'd really appreciate if anyone can verify the pattern and maybe provide a ballpark value on these pieces.
Hi Susan, If it is indeed "Cut" glass it is then NOT EAPG - which stands for "Early American PRESSED Glass". Now, some of the early EAPG pieces were flint crystal, but none are "Cut". Also, most American cut glass is floral, diamond, pinwheels, fans etc. Not cubes. So, it's most likely not American cut glass. Could very well be German, Polish, Irish (Waterford) or other companies.
Look extremely carefully all over the base both inside and out while tilting the glass and see if you can catch a glimmer of an etched signature anywhere. If you can find out who made it, it will make all the difference in value. It's lovely, But that is going to matter greatly. Nice find. :)
I don't what the pattern is, but I do know it isn't Cube, cubist, block, block-optic, waffle or Waterford or Wexford. I also do not recognize it as being Depression glass. It cannot be EAPG and cut glass at the same time. Either or, but not both. I would guess pressed (or pattern) glass. Seams and mold marks can be buffed out.
I have seen this pattern used in the 1950s-60s, but do not know its name.
Sorry I can't ID it.
Your remark just appeared. It is not the Cube pattern of Depression Glass. I don't know about EAPG.
