This is a neat little piece of EAPG I picked up yesterday at a garage sale. It is a pattern I don't recognize. I originally thought it was a light custard glass possibly Fenton Blackberry spray with an outside pattern but when I got it home and was able to look at it better, it is what I believe to be an early piece of milk glass with uranium. Very unnusual to have a two sided decorated piece this early. The one side appears to be clearly a blackberry pattern. The other side is less clear and wasn't pressed well possibly a test piece? I don't know, but the pattern is a sail boat on a lake with pine trees to the right in panels around the glass. It also has a unique three mold twisted stem. The piece has a mark on the bottom, clearly a P over a space and Co. My guess is maybe Portland glass company or Pittsburgh glass company. But as you can see this piece really lights up under UV.

    Fenton did make something very similar also. It is their #1802 Sailboats. Here's a link with some stems pictured at Doty's:
    can you show a photo of the mark on this piece?

    Thanks Tall cakes, I believe you may have found it, that looks like them, now will have to see if I can find the piece. I tried searching sailboats pattern and didn't come up with anything...thanks for the information...

    I have looked and does appear to be the outside pattern and as I had indicated earlier, the Blackberry Spray was very similar on the inside. I however, cannot find this item although, it looks like the ruffled compote without the ruffles although this is clearly factory this way. Also, I cannot find this coloring type. I wonder if they got the mold patterns from another company.

    I have located Fenton Sailboats in Custard, my initial impression by the Blackberry interior. The Custard Compote is listed as rare. The pattern was discontinued in 1916. I have located one shape like this, that they listed as Fenton also with the blackberry inside and the sailboat outside. I wasn't able to locate another. They didn't seem to have too much information on this piece.

    the one reference I found had a YOP of 1914 and no mention of a previous maker. Fenton of that era wasn't marked so no explanation for the mark you mentioned.
