- Cambridge closed its doors for the last time in 1958. They had
an earlier closing in 1954.
6 - Factory Descriptions - Dalzell, Gilmore & Leighton - Located from Wellsburg, West
Virginia in 1888 to Findlay, Ohio. Joined National Glass in 1899. In operation until
7 - Duncan & Miller closed in 1955; Fostoria closed in 1986. Gillinder
is misspelled throughout the entire book as Gillander.
Heisey closed in 1957
7 - Factory Descriptions - Findlay Flint - Opened on 1889, burned to the ground
in 1891. (did not fail as stated)
9 - Ada - No error, but add'l info. This was Ohio Flint's #808 pattern, and
when made later by Cambridge, it was Cambridge's #2577.
11 - "Amboy" - Is by Dalzell, actually named "Ivanhoe"
12 - Arcadia Lace - Not an error, just additional info - this was Jenkins'
14 - Artichoke - Not an error, just add'l info. When this pattern has the acid-treated "chokes" it's
known as Frosted Artichoke.
15 - Atlanta - At least some pieces made later by Federal, as the pattern appears
in a 1914 Federal catalog.
17 - "Banded Diamond Point" - Let's try "Mitered Frieze" by
Columbia, originally called "Eldorado" There
are even multiple Columbia ads that show it.
17 - Bamboo Beauty - Originally Columbia Glass (later Factory "J" of
U.S. Glass) pattern #150 "C".
17 - Banded Diamond Point - This pattern is called Mitred Frieze (the original
name was Eldorado) and it was made by Columbia
in 1888 and US Glass in 1891.
17 - Banded Diamond with Peg - ??? Pattern was given an entirely different
name because it had a band painted around the middle. What's
really weird is the exact same piece is shown on page
63 and called Diamond with Peg, which is the correct
20 - Beacon #410 - The cylinder vase is part of McKee's #410 Innovation line,
but the square vase isn't. The vase was made by Tiffin
and is their pattern #15175.
20 - Bead Column - I believe this is a Jenkins pattern. It's shown on page
29 of 'Just Jenkins' by Joyce.
21 - Beaded Beauty - This is part of Paden City's 555 line. Weatherman called
it "Vermilion" It's not EAPG - it's more
like 30's thru 50's. It is normally seen with a lid.
22 - Beaded Diamond - This is the Maryland pattern by US Glass, #15049 and
is part of the States series. AKA "Loop & Diamond", "Loop(s) & Fan(s)",
and "Inverted Loop(s) & Fan(s)". (See
22 - "Beaded Medallion" - National Glass, 1901 Dalzell Plant
23 - Beaded Swirl and Lens - This pattern cannot be distinguished by its colored
lens, because the lens is not always colored. See page
187 for proof.
26 - Bismarc Star - This is the Togo pattern. It's listed under that name on
page 184. The exact same piece is shown and I see no
reason to list it as two patterns.
27 - "Block and Panel" Geo. Duncan & Sons, Pittsburgh factory.
#800; Mrs Kamm called it "Heavy Paneled Finecut." [ref.
Bredehoft et al, Early Duncan Glass]
27 - "Block and Pillar" Tarentum PANELED ENGLISH HOBNAIL, c. 1901.
28 - Boxed Star - The two pictures shown are two different patterns. The pitcher
is Boxed Star, or Jenkins #100. This pattern was also
produced by Federal Glass and appears in a 1914 catalog
of theirs. I'm not sure what the carafe is, but it's much
higher quality than the Jenkins piece, and the patterns don't match. Look at the
star in the middle. On the carafe, it's rotated 45-degrees from the angle of the
star on the pitcher and it's a completely different star anyway.
29 - Brazilian - This one is correct, it's Fostoria's #600. Now look at page
84. Fostoria's #600 ls listed again, but the piece
illustrated is Cambridge's Nearcut #2351. The information
about the scalloped top and notched handles is incorrect.
31 - Buckle with English Hobnail - This is Westmoreland's #122 pattern from
32 - "Button Arches NEVER made by US Glass Co. Made by Geo. Duncan's Sons & Co
in Washington, PA. It was the Duncan glass company
in Pittsburgh that became part of US Glass.
34 - Cambridge #2660 - This is Wheat Sheaf, and the picture here should be
on page 207 where that pattern is listed instead of
the one that is shown.
34 - Cambridge Nearcut #2653 - Not an error, but he omitted the more commonly-
used name for this pattern, which is Nearcut Ribbon.
34 - Cambridge Heron - No error - just additional info. The Heron flower holder
was Cambridge's #1111 and was produced in the 1930's.
35 - Cane Column - This is not Portland glass or from the 1870's. It's McKee's
#411 from 1917. It's a candy jar with the lid missing.
The real Cane Column doesn't have fruit panels between
the caning and it's a much earlier style. This piece is part
of McKee's Innovation Cut line like Beacon #410 on page 20.
35 - Cane Pinwheel - This is Cambridge's Buzz Saw, which he states. I don't
know why the milk pitcher should have a different name.
37 - Centipede - Not an error. I think this may be Cambridge Nearcut #2661
but I only have a picture of one piece in that pattern
and I can't tell from it if it's a match or not. Perhaps
someone else has more info on this one?
38 - Chain - The picture is Chain with Star. There is a Chain pattern that
is slightly different. The picture shown on Chain with Star
42 "Clear Ribbon" NOT the Geo. Duncan pattern. (McCain has this wrong,
too.) Frosted Ribbon is the Duncan line #150.
43 - Clover - The Covered dish is Clover, but the compote is Hobbs' Daisy & Button #101.
46 - Columned Thumbprints - Add'l info only. This was Westmoreland's #185.
46 - Comet - Sandwich made two Comet patterns, but this isn't either of them.
The pattern shown is Indiana Glass #119 from about
47 - Connecticut - Picture is Bartholdi, made by O'Hara as their #650 in 1885,
later reissued by U.S. Glass. U.S. Glass made Connecticut
too, but they're different patterns. On Connecticut,
the patterned part is comprised of a band of squares with
X's impressed in them. Bartholdi's bands have a star motif.
49 - Crab Claw - That sure as heck doesn't look like a piece of Crab Claw to
me. The pattern looks very familiar, but I can't place
it right now.
49 - Croesus - Also made in crystal. Not all green and amethyst had gold trim,
but most did.
50 - Crystal Queen - Add'l info: This pattern is shown as Cambridge's #2589
in a 1903 catalog reprint. Likely a National Glass
mould transfer from Northwood. Ron Teal's book "Albany
Glass" claims this pattern was also made by Model Flint, but the
assertation appears to be made strictly due to finding shards - no mention
of documentation is made.
52 & 99 - "Currier & Ives" and "Hobbs Bloc" - Exact
same pitcher shown. This is the Currier & Ives
pattern. It has almost always been associated with Bellaire Goblet
Works, but it has been recently found to have been made by Co-operative Flint
Glass Company of Beaver Falls, PA by Bob Sanford.
53 - Daisy & Button - The celery shown is Gillinder, not Hobbs. He shows
the Hobbs D&B as Clover (see p. 43 above)
54 - Daisy & Button with Crossbars - The pattern pictured is a piece of
Indiana Glass #168, called "Creole" by
55 - Daisy and X-Band - This is Diamond Band by Indiana Glass (their #169).
55 - Daisy Band - Photo isn't real good, but this appears to be a flared sundae
in Jenkins Dahlia #286.
56 - DAISY-IN-SQUARE -- NOT Duncan's #330 or Richard's & Hartley pattern
by that name.
58 - Dew and Raindrop - Some pieces also made by Federal and appear in a 1914 Federal
59 - Diamond Band - This isn't Diamond Band - it's shown on page 55 as "Daisy
and X- Band". The pattern pictured here is Hocking's
Georgian from the 1930's.
62 - Diamond Thumbprint - Pattern pictured is not Diamond Thumbprint. It's
63 - Dog Hunting - Unable to see pattern clearly but appears to be not Greentown
but Dalzell's "Dog Chasing Rabbit" pitcher.
64 - Double Pinwheel - Pattern was made by Indiana Glass.
66 - "Duncan #40" The more recognizable name among collectors is "Bassettown",
and it was not produced in 1891 by Geo. Duncan & Sons;
it was introduced in 1898 by the Washington, Pa.
67 - Early American - This is English Hobnail - I've never heard of it being
called Early American before.
67 - "Duncan's Late Block" No. 331 was actually introduced in 1889,
according to trade journals. The line was continued
by US Glass after the merger.
67 - "Duncan's Clover" introduced in 1905 by Duncan & Miller;
never made by the Pittsburgh Duncan factory (which
was the only one in existence in 1890.)
69 - English Daisy & Button - Additional info: RD# 95625 was issued to
Edward Moore & Co. on March 12, 1888
74 - Feathered Ovals - This is Cambridge Nearcut #2579. At least some of this pattern
was produced later by Federal, as a nappy appears in their 1914 catalog.
75 - Fern Burst - Produced by Westmoreland. Attributed by Heacock after he
found a Butler Brothers assortment containing it with other
patterns in the assortment made by Westmoreland.
77 - Finecut and Fan - The pattern pictured is not Finecut and Fan. I'm not
exactly sure what it is, but based on shape and some
of the pattern characteristics, I suspect it was produced
by Indiana Glass.
79 - Flattened Hobnail - whatever pattern this is, it is not Flattened Hobnail. With the hobs in the base, it appears it could be Dewdrop (Hobnail) pattern by
Columbia Glass Co.. And it does appear to have the double-eye (pointed) hobnails but the photo is not great.
82 - Flower Panelled Cane - This is not the "Cane and Rosette" pattern
by Duncan. That pattern was much earlier than this
one and it is decidedly different. The item pictured
is a Knox ice tub made by McKee as part of their Innovation cut line. The pattern
was introduced sometime between 1917 and 1920.
83 - Forks - Forks and Wheat Sheaf are not the same pattern. Wheat Sheaf is
#2660. Forks is #2696.
84 - Fostoria's #600 - See page 29, Brazilian, above.
86 - Frosted Eagle - The base shown with the lid is incorrect. The Frosted
Eagle base has a cable type base w/ scrolled feet.
87 - Frosted Stork Platter - Produced by Iowa City Glass.
89 - Giant Bull's Eye - I think this compote is of much later manufacture -
probably 1950's or 1960's. The style and shape just
don't look right for the 19th century. I have a couple
of pieces of Giant Bull's Eye and the piece pictured definitely has a different
'flavor' to it. L.E. Smith made a basket with a very similar pattern and that
may be who made the compote too.
89 - Gloved Hand - Gloved Hand is a different pattern, made by U.S. Glass.
The pattern pictured is McKee's Plytec.
93 "Grated Diamond & Sunburst" The patent was granted in 1895,
but the line was actually introduced in 1894, according
to trade journals.
97 - Heisey's Grove and Slash - 2nd word should be "Groove" and not "Grove".
99 - "Currier & Ives" and "Hobbs Bloc" - Exact same
pitcher shown. This is the Currier & Ives pattern.
It has almost always been associated with Bellaire Goblet Works, but
it has been recently found to have been made by Co-operative Flint Glass Company
of Beaver Falls, PA by Bob Sanford.
100 - "Hobnail with Fan" - Another Dalzell piece. Smith refers to
it as "Fan Top Hobnail"
103 - Honeycomb and Hobstar - The three patterns shown don't appear to match.
The water bottle and vase at bottom of page may be
the same, but the other vase appears to be something
else. It might just be the pictures, though. The patterns aren't
very easy to see.
107 - Illinois - The pitcher shown is Illinois, but the other piece (spooner?)
111 - Indiana Silver - Add'l info: This is Indiana Glass #151.
112 - Indiana's #156 - This is Horsemint which is already covered on page 104.
112 "Inverted Eye" NOT Inverted Eye, but Duncan & Miller's No.
73 pattern, aka "Thumbnail". [ref:
See Heacock, "Old Pattern Glass According to Heacock" for what "Inverted
Eye" really looks like; see Heacock VI for a catalog reprint of No. 73.]
113 - Inverted Peacock - Add'l info: This was Cambridge's #2837
114 - Jabot - This pattern is listed in Kamm 8 and McCain, but the piece shown doesn't
match the illustrations in either of those books.
119 - Lace Daisy - The name has a typo, it should be Lacy Daisy. The creamer
pictured is is not the U.S. Glass version of the pattern,
though. It's Westmoreland's #909 which is shown in
a 1912 catalog reprint of theirs.
119 - Lacy Roman Rosette - The lacy period of pressed glass was pretty much pre-
Civil War not post-war as stated. This pattern is generally dated as being made
from the 1830's
120 - Ladder with Diamonds - Add'l info: Tarentum made a nearly identical pattern
that goes by the same name. In fact, Heacock suggested that the Duncan pattern
not be called by this name so as to avoid confusion. The Tarentum pattern has
hexagonal buttons filling the diamonds while the Duncan pattern, which is illustrated,
has tiny diamonds filling the diamonds. Also, "Ladder With Diamonds" actually
introduced in 1903.
121 - The Last Supper Plate - This was originally made by Model Flint Glass.
Indiana made it later.
121 - Late Washboard - This is an Anchor Hocking product. I don't know when
it was first produced, but suspect it was probably
some time around the 1950's. It appears in a 1971 Hocking
catalog as part of their Prescut line and is listed as a #595
12 oz. milk pitcher.
122 - Lattice Leaf - Pattern pictured is not Lattice Leaf. It's U.S. Glass
124 - Lenox - Add'l info: This pattern was also made by Cambridge as their
126 - The Lone Fisherman - This is a piece of the Actress pattern and should
be listed with it rather than separately.
128 - Manhattan - I find no documentation of reproductions made by Anchor Hocking, but
there were some made by Bartlett-Collins. I know for sure they were producing
them in 1974 as I have one of their catalogs that shows the pattern in clear,
avocado, and gold. Tiffin also made this pattern for many years, but in a limited
number of pieces.
129 "Mardi Gras" NOT No. 42, "Mardi Gras". I don't recognize
the pattern, but it is clearly not No. 42. The Duncan pattern, introduced in
1898, has alternating rib patterns. Every other one is serrated; the alternate
ones are a single row of English hobnail. This pattern has three ribs (the
outer two are serrated, and the inner one has an oval- and- notch pattern)
alternating with wider panels of larger sawtooth diamonds.
133 - Moon and Star - The pattern produced by Cooperative Flint Glass is not
the same one as shown here. That one is usually called "Jewelled Moon
135 - Nearcut #2692 - I'm not positive but I don't think the cruet shown is
this pattern. It could just be a bad picture though. The flutes on this
pattern are quite prominent - I have pieces of it and the picture doesn't seem
to match. The shape is right, but I don't think the pattern is. The stopper
looks like a later Hocking stopper.
135 - Nearcut Daisy - This pattern was produced by Cambridge and is their pattern #2760.
135 - New Era - This is not the Bryce Higbee New Era pattern. The piece pictured
was made by McKee and is shown in catalog cuts from
Sandra Stout's book on McKee as another pattern from
their Innovation cut line. They called the pattern "Snappy".
Also, "Era" and "New Era" were not the same pattern. See
page 210 "Yoke and Circle" for a real piece
of "New Era".
137 - Nonpariel - The creamer pictured is not Nonpariel. It's Barred Star,
which is Gillinder's #414 (also called Star in
140 - Ohio Star - Vase is OK, but the carafe isn't. The star in the Ohio Star
pattern has 6 points. The star on the pictured water
carafe has 8. The patterns are otherwise very similar.
Perhaps the Canadian-made pattern had an 8-pointed star?
141 - Open Plaid - The pitcher shown is Open Plaid, which was Central's #861.
The bowl is a different pattern called Berlin
which was made by Adams. Westmoreland's #124 pattern from
the 1920's is a reproduction of Berlin.
144 - Oval Star - Tumblers shown in picture do not match illustrations from
catalog pages that I have of this pattern. They're
some other pattern, but I don't know which.
144 - Paddle Wheel - Add'l info: Pattern #575 by Westmoreland.
144 - Paden City #206 - Originally called "Iris" and made by Bryce
Higbee. Later production by Paden City. The Paden City
pattern is known as Pineapple. The pattern was also
produced by Kemple and I think that amber pitcher is probably one
of theirs. I have one around here (a milk pitcher) somewhere in milk glass.
146 - Panelled Fishbone - This appears to be the Cobb pattern which was made
by Richards and Hartley. The pattern matches, but I
haven't been able to document this particular piece.
A Cobb butter (definitely) is misidentified as "Tree" on page
147 - Panelled Heather - Add'l info: Pattern #126 of Indiana Glass.
148 - Panelled Palm - Vase pictured does not appear to be Panelled Palm. See
page 122 under "Lattice Leaf" for a picture
of Panelled Palm.
149 - Panelled Thistle, original name of Delta, by Higbee c. 1910 is not the
same pattern as Late Thistle made by Cambridge c. 1903. Panelled Thistle
was reproduced by L. G. Wright in the
1940s and 1970s.
151 "Model Peerless" NOT "Model Peerless", which had three
larger bands of diamonds, with the center diamond row
being "somewhat coarser", as Mrs Kamm says. The tray
pictured here is part of a child's condiment set, made by Westmoreland.
153 - Petticoat - This absolutely is not a piece of Riverside's Petticoat.
153 - Pillar Bull's-Eye - The piece pictured is not Pillar Bull's-Eye. It's
one of the Loop or O'Hara patterns of which very similar
patterns were made by several companies.
154 - "Pleated Bands" - 1899 by Dalzell. Called "Reeding Bands"
155 - Pleated Medallion - The pitcher and cruet are Pleated Medallion, but
the plate is Higbee's Banquet, aka Medallion
Sunburst. Pleated Medallion was New Martinsville's pattern
155 MAGNET AND GRAPE - There are two types in this pattern. The first is "Magnet and
Grape w/ Frosted Leaf" is flint and made by Boston and Sandwich, 1860s.
The second is " Magnet and Grape w/ Stippled Leaf" is
non-flint and made by Adams, 1870s.
156 - Portland - The piece in the picture appears to be Fostoria's #1299 (Long Buttress)
rather than Portland. The patterns are similar, but the Fostoria pattern's "ribs" don't
turn up as much at the bottom, and they're also indented some
where the ones on Portland aren't.
157 - Priscilla - Add'l info: Pattern was produced later by Cambridge as their
#2769 "Alexis" pattern.
158 "Quartered Block" lamp does not date to the 1880s (in spite of
a claim by a recent book on Portland Glass that it
was made by Portland); it was introduced by Duncan Miller
in 1905, as part of their No. 52 line.
161 MINERVA - This pattern was made by Adams, 1881 - 1885. Spillman article.
It was not made by Boston and Sandwich or Burlington.
162 - Reverse Torpedo - Pattern pictured is New Jersey (see p. 136)
162 - Rexford - Add'l info: Was produced by New Martinsville after Higbee closed.
162 - "Rib Band" - "La Grippe" later called "Convex
Rib" by Dalzell, 1890.
164 - Ring Neck - Is it me or does the ring on that piece look like metal to
anyone else? I really believe it is and I think it's
a piece of Perfection separating glass which is kind
of neat stuff. The ring unscrews and it comes apart for easy cleaning
and filling. I have a water bottle of theirs. There are patterns that have a bulge
of glass similar to this, but it doesn't appear that's what is in the picture.
If you look at it with a magnifying glass, you can see some beading near the
lower edge and what looks like corrosion on the top of the ring. The metal rings
on the Perfection pieces have beading right in the same place.
164 - Rock Crystal - McKee's Puritan was a completely different pattern - it
and Rock Crystal are not the same.
165 - Romeo - This is not the Romeo pattern. It's Block and Fan. Romeo is also
known as 'Block and Fan', but it's not the same
pattern as this one.
167 - Rosette Row - The pattern pictured is Riverside's Chrysanthemum.
168 - Ruby Thumbprint - This is King's Crown and should probably be listed
with it. Listing the same pattern under multiple names
169 "Scalloped Six-Point" No. 30 was actually introduced in 1895.
169 - Glass Co. who made SAWTOOTH HONEYCOMB is STEIMER, not STEINER.
171 - Serrated Rib - The pattern pictured is not Serrated Rib. Serrated Rib
is Robinson's #4 pattern and the serrations on it are
wider. This pitcher is pictured in a Butler Brothers
ad in the middle of a bunch of Higbee's 'Paris 1900', called 'Zipper
Cross' when it was later made by New Martinsville. It doesn't have the characteristic
cross-type treatment at the top, but according to "Bryce, Higbee and
J.B. Higbee Glass" by Lola and Wayne Higby, some pieces of this
pattern do not have that motif.
171 "Sequoia" see p. 27, "Block & Panel".
172 "Shelton Star" NOT "Shelton Star", but Duncan & Miller's "Block & Rosette",
no. 50, introduced in 1902.
174 - Snail - The pattern was originally made by Duncan as their #360 and was
later made by U.S. Glass. It was not the Idaho
pattern. Idaho is a plain pattern with a ribbed-looking foot.
174 "Snow Star" called "Feathered Medallion in the Higby book
178 PANEL, RIB, AND SHELL - This pattern was made by Central Glass, 1880s and
may have been continued by another U.S. Glass firm
180 - Starred Scroll - No error, just additional info. The name Starred Scroll
is confusing as this pattern has gotten mixed up in
some of the literature with Challinor's #310, "Scroll
with Star". I've collected several pieces of this pattern. I
have no idea who made it, but the glass is of excellent quality. Shapes I've
seen that aren't mentioned are a decanter (I didn't
buy as it had been purpled), tumblers, and a biscuit
180 - Startec - Pattern shown is Stars and Bars, which was Bellaire Goblet's
#600 pattern. It was reproduced by L.G. Wright who
called it Daisy & Cube. I think others may have
also reproduced it.
182 - "Stippled Forget-Me-Not", "Finley" should be "Findlay"
182 - "SFMN with Kitten", same misspelling as above.
183 - Strigel - Pattern name should be spelled Strigil. At least one piece
of this pattern was produced in chocolate glass.
184 - Sunken Bulls-Eye - I think this one is probably Giant Bulls Eye. Perhaps
someone else can confirm.
186 SWIRL WITH CABLE - This is definitely Dalzell, Gilmore, and Leighton.
187 - Swirl and Diamond - This is not the Riverside pattern "America".
If you look closely at the swirled bars, you'll see
that the one in the center is serrated. What is pictured
is a piece of U.S. Glass #15042, "Zippered Swirl and Diamond" dating
187 - Swirled Column - This is Beaded Swirl and Lens with the lens uncolored. Swirled
Column is similar, but doesn't have the lenses at the bottom and the shape
is slightly different. The stopper isn't the right one.
187 - SWIRL-STEM HOBSTAR is McKee's STARS & STRIPES (OMN), documented in
Kamm Book #6.
187 - SWIRLED STAR - McCain attributes this to the Jefferson plant in Canada,
c. 1885-95. I think the name was given by Kamm in her
187 PILLAR AND BULLSEYE - The picture is incorrect, as it is "Loop".
This is a carryover from the corrections of the 1999
188 - Sword and Circle - These appear to be Hocking's High Point from the 1940's.
It's most commonly seen in their Royal Ruby glass,
but was made in crystal also. I don't have any documentation
for anything but pitchers and tumblers, so bowls may
or may not be the same pattern. I can't tell from picture.
189 - Tarentum's Virginia - Tarentum's Virginia has diamonds in the diamonds.
The pattern shown has triangles. The Tarentum pattern
also isn't "swagged" on the base. I'm not
sure what pattern is shown.
189 - Teardrop - First, 'Teardrop' and 'Teardrop and Thumbprint' are two distinct
patterns. They are not the same as stated. I don't believe either of the pictures,
which are two different patterns (note placement of teardrops - they're directly
on top of each other on one piece and staggered on the other) come from either
of the patterns mentioned. The rectangular dish appears to be a piece of 'Teardrop
Row' by Bryce, Higbee.
190 - Teasel - The Welkers felt that the two pieces pictured are not the same
pattern and I would tend to agree. Even the goblet appears different depending
on which book you look at. The catalog cut of Teasel, which was Bryce
#87 doesn't appear to match this one, but it's hard to say for sure. At any
rate, they assigned two different patterns, one being the Bryce and the
other being one that they call Teasel (Lee), as a plate is documented in Ruth
Webb Lee's "Early American Pressed Glass". I'm not all that familiar
with these patterns - perhaps somebody else can add to this.
190 "Teepee" "Tepee", NOT "Teepee" ("Teepee" was
used to describe another pattern.) It was made by Geo.
Duncan's Sons & Co. in 1897, but NEVER made by US Glass Co. (See
comments on p. 32, "Button Arches".)
191 Glass Co. making TEXAS STAR again is STEIMER, not STEINER.
192 - Thousand Eye - No mention is made here that Thousand Eye was made by
two different manufacturers, Richards and Hartley, and Adams. The Adams version
had three knobs on the stems (excpet the goblet) and finials of many pieces,
while the Richards and Hartley stems were panelled. Adams produced the goblet.
The photo is the one made by Adams.
192 "Three Face" Probably NOT made by US Glass; doesn't show up in
any US Glass catalogs after the merger. It was made by Duncan, pattern #400.
194 - Toltec - The pieces pictured are Fentec rather than Toltec. The patterns
have some similarities, however in the main large motif,
Toltec has daisies surrounding the central star while
Fentec has hobstars. Also, on Toltec, the large motif
isn't centered between the handles where on Fentec it is.
194 - Tong - The pattern shown is not the early EAPG pattern named Tong, but
an English pattern with a Registry mark; RD#790481, made by Bagley & Co.
Knottingly, England. Registered on 20 Feb 1934.
195 - Tree - Pictures are of three different patterns. The tumbler is Tree,
the butter is a pattern called Cobb (commonly known as Zipper) which was made
by Richards & Hartley in 1885, and the third piece (spooner?) is Ladders
by Tarentum (see p. 120) Tree was produced by Paden City and was their
#202 line, called "Virginia" by Barnett and probably dates from about
195 QUARTERED BLOCK - Made by Duncan and Miller, 1905. This is a carryover
from the corrections of the 1999 edition.
201 - U.S. Hobstar - This is the Omnibus pattern which is shown on page 141.
It shouldn't be listed as two different patterns.
202 - U.S. Rib - Not an error, just additional information. This was the "New
York" pattern in the States series.
202 - V-In-Heart - This pattern was produced by Bryce, Higbee from 1895 to
203 "Venice" NOT "Venice". "Venice" has deeper
rows of threading, covering the upper portion of the
piece. This is Duncan & Miller's No. 83, initially introduced in 1913 as "Silver
Band - Old English Optic", although most collectors know it as "Tavern".
204 - Waffle and Star Band - A nit, but captions on pictures say "Brand" instead
of "Band". In addition to clear and ruby-stained, this pattern was
also available with gold accents.
205 "Waffle Variant" indentified here as Geo. Duncan's No. 308, but
this is actually not "Waffle Variant", but "Waffle & Bar" (on
the same page in Kamm I.) While the two are similar, this one was NOT made
by Geo. Duncan & Sons. (Kamm notes that they are similar in shape; this
seemed to lead to the assumption that the two are the same.) No. 308 has a
smaller waffle pattern than No 331; neither Duncan pattern has the bar between
the larger squares that is part of the "Waffle & Bar" pattern.
206 -Westmoreland's #750 - I think the basket shown may be a Duncan #61 instead.
The two are similar, but according to Charles West Wilson, the Westmoreland
baskets had flat, undivided panels where the cutting appears in the picture,
where the Duncan ones had a ridge down the center. The photograph appears to
show a basket with that ridge. In illustrations I found, it also looks like
the scalloping on the edges of the Duncan baskets is a little tighter and the
scalloping on the one pictured looks like
206 - Weston - Weston was Robinson's #123 pattern, but this piece doesn't appear
to be part of that pattern. Weston has diamond-shaped star-filled
motifs separated by two triangle-shaped pieces with a small thumbprint
in each. I'm lousy at describing it, though. You can see the real thing illustrated
in McCain and also in Lee's "Victorian Glass".
207 - Wheat Sheaf - He's right that Wheat Sheaf was Cambridge's Nearcut pattern
#2660. The picture shown, however, is a piece of #2696, which is commonly called
Forks. Forks is illustrated correctly on page 83, but he wrongly states that
Forks is the same as Wheat Sheaf. I have the Imperial catalog he's talking
about and the cracker jar does show up there, although the finial on
the Imperial one looks slightly different - that could be because my copy isn't
super-good. It's a photocopy from a microfiche at the Corning Museum.
210 - Yoke and Circle - This is another name for Higbee's "New Era" which
is incorrectly illustrated on page 135. The picture on this one is correct.
This pattern was not also called "Era". "Era" is
an entirely different pattern.
211 - Zipper - This doesn't appear to be a piece of Cobb/Late Sawtooth. On
that pattern, the "zipper" section is divided down the middle
and that doesn't appear to be the case in the picture shown. I haven't been
able to positively identify it.
211 - Zipper Cross - This pattern was originally made by Bryce, Higbee as their
Paris 1900 pattern between 1899 and 1907. The moulds landed at New Martinsville
in 1919 after the Higbee plant closed.
212 - Zipper Slash - The spooner pictured is Zipper Slash, the compote isn't.
The pattern was made by Geo. Duncan's Sons & Co. (Washington, PA)
and introduced in 1894, NOT 1905. The compote identified as such is not Zipper
218 - It Is God's Way - His Will Be Done - This bread plate memorializes President
McKinley (not Garfield) who was assasinated in 1901. Garfield was killed
