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.

    US Glass Co's Athenia (OMN), aka Reverse 44 aka Paneled 44 also exists in solid canary (vaseline) glass. I have a covered puff box (marked). Guessing they revived the mould during the 1920s when the company was producing a lot of canary colored glass.

    Hi Paul71! Thanks for your input! I have never seen the all Canary Athenia US Glass pieces....must be quite stunning. RER (LOUMANAL)

    It truly is. It practically glows, even without UV light. Very deep canary, typical of US Glass from the 1920s.
