Early American Pattern Glass, also known as "pattern glass", or Victorian glass is pressed glass tableware that was made only during the Victorian period ca 1850-1910, only in America, and in "sets" such that all of the pieces in the set matched in design. While the wealthy of that period would have used blown glass and china from abroad, this "pressed ware" as it was called commercially, were the dishes used by the most people.
Nearly all early glass was hand made, and as a result may have light surface lines and swirls (often called straw marks) which are the result of the production methods that were used. Some items will have included glass bubbles and mold seam lines . this is normal and acceptable for EAPG glass.
This pretty U.S. Glass spooner was made by the U.S. Glass Company sometime between 1895 and 1912. It was called either "Bouquet" or "Flower with Cane".
It is 4 and 1/4 inches tall and 3 and 1/2 inches wide. This lovely, classic, spooner is stained with a lovely lavender color that covers each petal of the three flowers. The gilded accents are mostly worn, but traces still remain, and add a pleasant reminder of the age of this eloquent spooner. The spooner is free of any chips or cracks.
