I recently helped my sister clean out our parents home. After they died she and her husband purchased the condo and recently decided to sell it as they were not using it. So down they came from Atlanta and down we went from Sarasota. The closet in the hall had been my mother’s china closet and there were treasures upon treasures within.
I admire Bill of Affordable Accoutrements because he knows so much about the beautiful items he creates his tablescapes with and shares this information with those of us who follow him.
Amazon supplied some books, ebay was consulted, pressed glass was googled and pages upon pages were studied. I found most of the silverplate. My eyes were blurry….I am still researching. I am marking everything I find. I love the research but there is a lot of glassware out there.
I cannot see to find out the name of the pattern or the company that made the dishes and the tray on the right. I have found pieces of this pattern but they are always listed as unknown pattern and manufacturer.
Some more unknowns below….
What I have found!
The above pattern is Caribbean by Duncan Miller Glass.
The little oval dish above is Galloway by US Glass c. 1901, pattern 15086.
The glass above is another US Glass pattern called Pineapple and Fan and is EAPG (Early American Pressed Glass) c.1891. The pattern is also known as Holbrook, Shepherd’s Plaid and Cube with Fan.
There is lots of information out there but it is all over the place! So I did some research about what to have for dinner with my favorite cook. A girl can only look at glass for just so long….
I am joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday. Be sure to stop in see the other pretty tabletops.
