    Copied;
    The American Brilliant Period in cut glass history began around 1850 and lasted into the early 1900s. IMMIGRANTS HELPED supply glass houses in the United States with skilled cutters allowing them to develop a product rivaling European cut glass. Prior to that time, most cut glass pieces were produced in England, Ireland and France.

    When American manufacturers displayed their wares at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1876, their clear, bright, leaded glass garnered new respect when compared to glass exhibited from other countries. From that point on, American cut glass became extremely popular as gift items and most mid-income to affluent households held at least a few pieces to grace their most elegant tables.

      All of these are moulded. Cut glass pieces will have a very sharp feel to the edges in most cases.

      Ok vetraio50 I give up. now you have given me another piece of glass to learn to identify. Molded, Pressed, Cut along with Antique and Vintage. to collect or not to collect, old coke, New coke, I am failing badly. I'M SO CONFUSED! Thanks to all of you for plugin me with love's most of you are always there for me no matter what I post.

      bot of these do look like pressed glass to b=me too. the creamer looks like maybe Heisey #400 Colonial Scalloped Top, c.1909. Helps to have pics shat show a clear profile and not at an angle.

      There are pressed glass patterns with very sharp pattern edges that can be confusing.
