    Hi
    Researching this little glass suggests it is from the early 1900's. I have seen similar pieces that state that as the age. It looks like new but I have no idea how long it has been stashed away at the back of a cupboard.

    Can anybody confirm that date is correct?

    Thanks

      I have no idea Sean. My parents had it for years. I do not even know of anybody visiting the USA. It is a small world. LOL

      yes, this is EAPG. It is ruby stained tho' (not ruby flashed). This is George Duncan's Sons & Co, . #39 Button Arches, c.1897; was continued by Duncan & Miller from 1900 for a number of years. Ruby stained souvenir glass was quite popular around that time.

      you're very welcome : ) when ruby stained this pattern is often called 'Red Button Arches' and these souvenirs are considered very desirable.
