    I purchased a box of pressed glass at an estate that I bid up to 30.00 dollars. This was a nice surprise because I didn't have a chance to look what was in the box before. This has some chipping on the edge...
    This is one rare cake stand! In fact the whole pattern is scarce.
    The pattern is MAGNOLIA and it is decorated with molded magnolia
    flowers circling the center. Dalzell, Gilmore & Leighton Glass Co.
    made this pattern ca. 1891. This stand is 9 /4" diameter
    & it is 6 1/4" high with an icing lip

      Thank you TallCakes. What does #41 mean?

      glass companies very often gave pattern numbers before names were given. Some patterns are known only by a pattern number.

      Thank you TallCakes. What is your favorite cake plate? Do you have this one?
    5. TallCakes TallCakes, 6 years ago
      I have too many that I like to really pick a favorite. I do have several Dalzell stands but not this particular pattern.

      Behr--some companies used numbering systems, whereas others used names. Bryce, Higbee & J. B. Higbee used names rather than numbers. Some used both a name and a number for the same pattern. USGCo. is a good example. Geo. Duncan's Sons and Duncan and Miller generally used numbers. Sometimes the same company used a name for one pattern but only a number for another. Dalzell, Gilmore & Leighton did this. These are just examples I've noted. The earliest EAPG patterns documented through catalogs actually used names.

      Thanks Paul71. I have collected and inherited EAPG. Its good to know when you are trying to ID a pattern that you don't pull your hair out trying to find a name. I am a little obsessive about solving "what is it" no matter what the collection is. I'm guessing most collectors are too!

      That's part of the fun, Behr!

      There is another of the Magnolia pattern salvers that has the magnolias on the foot rather than rays. I love mine.
