1891, the U S Glass Co. began making pattern glass dishes
in patterns named after the states which were
members of the Union at that time.
These are now known as "The States' Patterns".
We are including a few here which are slightly peripheral to
the "official" list of patterns named for states but which
some now collect as a part of that series.
Darryl Reilly and Bill Jenks have written a fabulous book,
U. S. GLASS THE STATES PATTERNS; An Identification & Value Guide,
and they have generously allowed us to use
their valuable published information on this web site
