    Recently I saw a set very similar to the one I posted but I didn’t buy it. I was pressed glass and had a mark inside that dated it back to around 1905 – 1910. I didn’t like it that much because it was very heavy and rather rough. When I say the set I posted here, it reminded me of the one I had seen earlier but this one seems to be better made. The glass is clear and the lines seem to be crisp. I believe it is cut rather than pressed. The pieces are rather heavy and in pretty good shape. Based on the similarity of the two sets (the one with the mark and my one) I would think that this one is from the early part of the last century too.

    I have looked on line for similar items and there are a lot out there. Many of them are listed as American Brilliant Cut but because I really don’t know anything about the maker and the pattern, I wouldn’t make a claim like that. Also, I came across some Canadian cut glass that looked similar.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for looking:)

      Ya know, I think you are right, this pattern may be related to mine. Both Libbey, but yours is Eulalia (1896), I think. Take a look around Google and see what you think.

      Names that tie-in with the Libbey factory at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, so named because it was to honor the discovery of America (originally planned for 1892, the 400th anniversary, it was not ready to open on time and delayed a year) include "COLUMBIA’ (1893) (Fig. 1), "PRINCESS" (1896) (Fig. 2) and "EULALIA" (1896) (Fig. 3). The last two were in connection with Princess Eulalia, the official representative of Spain’s Royal Family to visit the Fair and for whom Libbey made a spun glass dress. (See May ‘85 HOBSTAR, pg. 8).

      katherinescollections, I just browsed through some of the American Brilliant Cut postings here on CW because I want to add some of my recent finds, and so I "discovered" your comments on my post. I am so sorry for not responding earlier, like three years ago, I really missed your comment, but I didn't check. Thanks so much for your insightful and helpful comments!
