I would appreciate any information that you may have on these pieces. Attached note says 1886.
There are four pieces in the set. Two with lids and two without.

    Hello...........I have sent your pictures to a friend who knows more about glass than I. I pretty much know American Brilliant Cut Glass, however this is not in my area. I'll write back when I hear from my friend. What ever it is, it is beautiful!!!!!

    Here is the response from my friend. Take care..............Mark

    Hi Mark........Yes, they are pattern glass, American, and the date of 1886 would be correct. There are tons of books on this type of glass written in the past 75 years. Ruth Webb Lee is one author, but more recently there are books from the 1990's. No idea of the pattern name or maker on these pieces. They are really terrific.......Wayne

    Thanks Mark for sharing that. It gives me a direction to look.

    I looked through over 1,000 pieces of early American Patter Glass and could not find this pattern or shape. The closest I found was from a Co. called Mckee. Still looking. mark

    Follow up. I contacted the West Virginia Museum of Glass about these. They contacted some friends named Nelia and Tom. The verdict is this...This is called FLAT OVAL and is shown in the KAMM pitcher books. It is Victorian. Commonly known as Early American Pressed Glass. The maker is unknown.

    Thanks for your help, Mark.
