Toy Dishes - dishes made just for dolls - in this Store are mostly from the Victorian age, 1850-1910. They are under 3"
in at least one dimension. These are parts of "Four Piece Table Sets" which, as we learned in Pattern Glass School, includes the
spooner, creamer, covered sugar & covered butter dish.
Some of these patterns are miniature versions of EAPG patterns.
Since much of this glassware was in limited production and subject to everyday
use as toys, what little survives is very much in demand by collectors.
A WORD ABOUT GENERAL CONDITION OF EARLY AMERICAN PATTERN GLASS:
All of the glass we sell is over a century old and as such, shows
normal characteristics of age, which may include base wear,
bubbles, pattern irregularities, annealing lines or mold marks.
Century old glass may also have ash, sand, or dirt specks embedded in the glass.
We describe any chips, cracks or other damage that would impact the value of the item.
