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.
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...
