Early American Pattern Glass, also known as simply "pattern glass", or Victorian glass is pressed glass tableware that was made only during the Victorian period ca 1850-1910, 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 "everyday housewives".
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.
Offered is this wonderful EAPG water goblet . It is a beautiful inverted bell shape and it is in excellent condition, free of chips or cracks, but there is one small surface mar that was made during the manufacturing process. The pattern, which should be easily identified, eluded our attempts. The main pattern is evenly spaced panels that arch at the top. They are spaced at regular intervals that touch around the circumference of the glass. The bottom or the platform is shaped like an octagon. The goblet is 6 & 3/8 inches tall.
