I enjoy researching EAPG (Early American Pattern Glass), which was produced during (roughly) the Victorian era. I collect EAPG cake stands.

  1. 'Caledonia' was the OMN; hard to say what name Federal used without seeing tjhier catalogs. Here's what on resource says: "Introduced by US Glass c1906, by 1907 only a few items of No. 15094 appear in...
  2. one with spools https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/antique-victorian-cast-iron-thread-483152895
  3. here's one at WP https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/antique-victorian-thread-spool-stand-1953115221
  4. sewing thread spool/bobbin stand; the top holds a pin cushion
  5. I've seen this small compote noted as part of the 'Wreath of Roses' line by Fenton c1910. http://www.carnivalheaven.com/carnivalglass107/id89.htm
  6. can't answer your question as to why that pedestal base was added, as that pattern line does have a compote with a pedestal base; but painting wouldn't hurt it... The glass is EAPG: Dalzell Bros. & Gi...
  7. as "R" does have known errors in their listings; I try to verify their attributions. I'd lean toward Indiana Glass based on seeing the matching fruit grouping on a frosted 'Constellation' plate at a f...
  8. or, 2nd thought, check Indiana Glass 'Constellation intaglio fruit' c1930s
  9. check Imperial Glass 'Intaglio Fruit' c1930s
  10. I think there is no way to tell the difference in the maker as not all pieces were marked by Higbee and I don't know if Paden City may have removed the logo from the molds...
  11. sorry but I can't think of anything to help with an out of focus blurry image. I use an autofocus SLR for my glass and my camera phone for family snapshots as it's convenient. If your using the viewfi...
  12. just revisited that one... and your may be a match as well... tho' there may be some similarities to Madora, after further investigation, pretty sure this the "Laurel" pattern by J. B. Higbee c1908, ...
  13. tho' there may be some similarities to Madora, after further investigation, pretty sure this the "Laurel" pattern by J. B. Higbee c1908, and continued by Paden City Glass c1918.
  14. these images are much to blurry to make out details; but I don't see 'Madera' here
  15. vinegar can be used to remove scale deposits from hard water but doesn't help when the surface of the glass is damaged by chemical etching.
  16. 'sick' glass is very difficult to fix, as it usually requires professional polishing. Some folks say that filing with clear oil can sometimes mask the damage.
  17. the etch is #327 Navarre on #2496 Baroque compote c1930s
  18. agree the green is Fenton #411 Peacock Tail c1910, and the marigold rose bowl looks to be Fenton 'Coin Dot' c1909. The pontil rules out Fenton for the blue bowl.
  19. the pontil mark would rule out Fenton as maker of the pitcher; also that sharp angular crimping is not typical of Fenton.
  20. Fostoria 'Coin' ashtray; not sure about the signature... here's a green one: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/fostoria-coin-glass-10-ashtray-green-1819596229
  21. check Co-operative Flint Glass #317 'Famous' c1899
  22. maybe check Viking Yesteryear
  23. nearly impossible to make out the details in these blurry images... the only thing close I find is Lancaster Glass "Carnation Ware' c1911
  24. really difficult to make out details due to fuzz check Fenton 'Orange Tree'
  25. Imperial Glass #976 'Rose In Snow' c1960s this is a reproduction of the covered sugar by Campbell, Jones & Co. #125 'Rose In Snow' c1883
  26. looks to be Westmoreland 'Indian Sunset' c1908 really need better focused images...
  27. U.S. Glass Co. #15094 Caledonia c1906; reproduced by Federal Glass Co. c1914
  28. Co-operative Flint Glass #370 c1905-10; doesn't have an AKA
  29. New Martinsville #711 Tobin c1909
  30. yes, later EAPG: Lancaster Glass #502 North Star/Stippled Fans c1915
  31. originally U.S. Glass Co. 15111 Slewed Horseshoe c1908 and reproduced by Smith Glass as Pinwheel and Stars...
  32. might try looking thru the catalogs at these sites: http://www.cutglass.org/LABAC/CuttingHouses.htm http://www.cutglass.org/LABAC/CuttingHouses.htm

  34. found several similar with Syracuse China mark https://www.etsy.com/il-en/listing/251396935/syracuse-china-airplane-demitasse-cup?show_sold_out_detail=1 https://www.1stdibs.com/furniture/dining-...
  35. first piece looks like Cambridge #3797: https://www.replacements.com/p/cambridge-cambridge-square-square-base-3-part-relish/camcasq/104689471
  36. technically, jadeite was the trade name of Fire King, by Anchor Hocking; but it is often used to describe jade glass or jade green glass. One reference mentioned that the technical name for Jobling' ...
  37. Chlorate of Potash tablets were 'dispensed' by different companied back in the day for sore throat, etc.
  38. looks like a Fenton #9107 Poppy student lamp c1960s
  39. might this be the 'pail': Fostoria #2378 Whip Cream Pail https://chataboutdg.com/gallery/details.php?image_id=11316&mode=search https://www.replacements.com/webquote/fos2378p.htm
  40. Wheeling D- 58 'Fox and Hounds' etch; not sure who made the ice bucket: https://chataboutdg.com/gallery/details.php?image_id=404&mode=search
  41. where's the OP??? considering the floor tile is likely one foot squares, the size is somewhere around 2 feet x 5 feet...
  42. really hard to make out any details in these photos; a side view showing the design would help. It looks like a spinner/pinwheel motif. I think it's Fostoria's 'Virginia' pattern; here's another CW po...
  43. Kemple glass did own many old McKee molds and reproduced this pattern called 'Cane Band and Rose'
  44. Fenton "Blackberry Spray" Dugan Glass "Wreath of Roses" Imperial Glass "American Beauty Rose" Cambridge Glass "Double Star"
  45. Fenton "Water Lily" Imperial Glass "Quilted Diamonds" often has Pansy interior Imperial Glass "Double Dutch" Northwood "Finecut Roses"
  46. INARCO (Japan) "Orange Spice" jam/marmalade pot c1960s-70s
  47. cuttings were often done by 3rd party decorating companies. Your console bowl might be Fostoria but hard to tell with this photo; try posting a photo from the side showing the full profile of the bowl.
  48. "R" has it listed with an assigned number: https://www.replacements.com/webquote/benben9.htm
  49. S-V is for Semi-Vitreous Procelain
