Early American Prescut (EAPC) was introduced in the early 1960's by Anchor Hocking and quickly became a popular pattern. The economical glassware offered the appearance of more expensive cut glass but could be afforded by the average household. Because of the star within the pattern, it was dubbed "Star of David" by its collectors.
Many of the Prescut items were made to be utilized in multiple ways. This multi-purpose vase is one of those items. It was made as a vase or can be turned over to be used as the base of the 13 1/2" platter (available in this shop) to create the pedestal cake plate. The multi purpose use of this type of item made them more economical and also conserved storage space within the home.
In Excellent Condition and created in the same shape as the larger vase (also the base to the Punch Bowl) this piece is considerably smaller. It measures approximately 4 1/2" tall and 6" across the saw toothed edge.
