Come in and browse our Victorian Early American Pattern Glass Shop. Early American Pattern Glass is commonly referred to as "EAPG" or old pressed glass. English EAPG dates from 1860 to 1930 and American EAPG dates from 1820 to 1910. In America, there was patterned glass made after 1910. We have included in our shop patterned glass that was made after 1910, except for depression glass. We have an assortment of patterned glass from various manufacturers. It is not uncommon to find the same patterned glass made by several different manufacturers. Many manufacturers went out of business and other manufacturers bought the molds of these manufacturers.
We test all glass items in our EAPG shop under a black light. Glass made between 1850 and 1915 should fluoresce yellow/green under a black light in a dark room. This is because of manganese in the glass during this time period. Please see the description to see how the item rated in the black light test.
Early American Patterned Glass is very early glass and as such, should be shown the care and love it deserves. Please hand wash and dry your Early American Patterned Glass. Remember they didn't have dishwashers back in those days.
Enjoy looking for your treasure here.
