I have collected, sold and traded thousands of EAPG items over the more than 40 years that I have been interested in Pressed Glass Patterns but my favorite is the REVERSE 44 ,aka ATHENIA ,aka Paneled 44 produced by the U.S. GLASS COMPANY of Pittsburgh, PA in 1912. There is something about the reverse 44 pattern and also the quality of the glass that have always endeared my wife & I to this pattern. This particular Tankard Set is decorated with a Platinum Stain but even the plain ones are stunning. They were also decorated with gold, green, maiden blush (pink), blue and yellow staining. We have other items in this pattern with the same Platinum Stain and are always looking for more.
