Michigan blush stained cruet. 
Not original stopper. 
Challinor and Taylor, 3 3/8” hi; Bird in Nest with Flowers, (mordock/adams #77, pg. 20.)  it is not shown the book (only the variant #78 with star on bottom).  Mordock/adams said that it comes in clear and purple slag with the cat on the bottom.

Amberina is being much reproduced today.  Original early pieces, however, are very difficult to find and are exquisitely beautiful, the deeper color being much more pink than red as they are today.  This is an ice cream tray in Hobbs No. 101 aka Hobnail Diamond patterns c. 1884. Yes, Shell & Tassel was made in a few colors in a few forms.  Here are two rare blue tab handled sauce dishes.



BEADED TULIP aka ANDES pattern was made by the McKee Glass Company, Pittsburgh, c. 1894. It has been reported to have possibly been made in colors, but until Shannon Benson turned up to share her amber pitcher with us, it had not been documented to our knowledge. And speaking of rare colors, here's an INDIANA aka PRISON WINDOWS sauce dish is green and gold.  It is the Indiana States pattern by U S Glass Co c. 1896 and seen only very rarely in green.
Nail aka Recessed Pillar is one of the Ripley Glass Company's signature patterns.  It was made in the 1880s in many forms and this
finger lamp is one of the rarest of those forms.

   This ruby red FLINT bowl and underplate are of undetermined origin. The gold trim is well preserved and the pattern is Tree of Life.
   Morning Glory is a pattern not often seen. This is a Master Salt and an Individual Salt in the pattern. They are flint, made by the Boston Sandwich Glass Co. in the 1860's.
   This pair of oil lamps is rare because of the vaseline color in the bases and the fonts. A product to the Adam's Glass Co, in the 1870s, the pattern, Apollo, was also made in blue and clear.
   A little-known color in EAPG was made by the Tarentum Glass Co. in a few patterns. From the scarcity of pieces seen today, the production of pieces in this"depression pink" color must have been limited. These are Harvard Yard wine and goblet ca 1900.

   BROKEN COLUMN aka RATTAN is a pattern made in many forms in clear and ruby-stained. It was made in a limited number of forms in color such as this blue cup.
Columbia Glass Co. ca 1888.

This is a mystery piece, at least for us. The bowl ( 6.5" x 3.75") is like the Snowdrop pattern and the animal underneath it is an unfriendly looking dog of some sort. We can find no English mark on it. If anyone can ID it, we'd be grateful.  Flaccus?
An exquite example of early flint in vaseline glass w/ extraordinarily deep, & detailed engravings of deer and forest. Probably foreign.
    Sandwich Ivy was named by Metz I pg 14. The English maker of this toy sugar basin and creamer set is unknown. They are flint glass and Mrs. Metz dates from possibly the 1840's. She priced the creamer at $65 in 1958! The phrase "sugar basin" is a distinctively British concept of a compote-looking container for the lumpy sugar of the Victorian era.
  The pattern was made in black glass also.
Rochelle aka Princess Feather pattern was produced by Bakewell, Pears Glass Co. in the 1870's. It is known in clear and milk glass but very few colored pieces have been found.
This is a 7" amber plate.
Look closely at the center of these frosted sauce dishes and you will see a Bunny's head. It is said that this pattern, Cabbage Leaf, recently discovered to have been made by the Riverside Glass Co. in the 1880s, was inspired by the Uncle Remus stories about Brer Rabbit. Pieces in this pattern are only very rarely found in color.
Whale Oil Lamp in Canary, c. 1855. This lamp is from a one piece-three part mold and therefore lacks the well known wafer. Authors have devoted little attention to the "one piece" molded, pre-kerosene lighting device, which makes them - in clear - especially attainable in today's market. One piece fluid-period lamps were reproduced throughout the 20th century.
This is a water pitcher in States pattern that is fairly difficult to find-- partly because few are able to identify the pattern! It is the Montana state pattern by U S Glass Co. ca 1891. It is the only blown design in the
States series.
Little is known about this beautiful stoppered 9" tall bottle except that it is Overshot glass with the serpent decor and gold design on the serpent and on the matching stopper. It is most probably by the Portland Glass Co. ca 1865-1875. Ladd called the pieces decorated with the serpent Ophidian.
This is an Oil Lamp with blown cut overlay red to clear font and molded blue "baroque" base. Like the double step glass base, the baroque was a popular companion to the blown or molded font of the 1860s and 70s. This base was produced in six sizes and a myriad of colors, including speckling.
One interesting aspect of EAPG collecting is that finding "new" forms seems to never end. Here's a formerly non-published banana stand in Riverside's ESTHER pattern ca 1896.
It was apparently constructed from a compote standard and a 10" plate & found by Tony Hodgson in New Zealand!
This is DIADEM (aka: Sunburst-on-Shield) in canary opalescent
by Northwood @ Wheeling, WV
. Not only was this unknown in vaseline glass, but in any color
& no reference lists this shape-
an 11" plate!
At right is a tumbler in the Sandwich Vine pattern. It is the only piece known to exist in the pattern other than the goblet. The goblet is known in 2 forms; with a round base and with a hexagonal base. It is thought that the round base is a product of the Boston & Sandwich Glass Co. and the hexagonal base is a product of France. The excellent condition of the blue and gold decor adds to the rarity of this amazing find which was sold at the Green Valley Auction in September, 2003 for $1000.
Bead & Scroll is a well known pattern in table size pieces but this is a rare tiny little toy mug; part of the Child's Set in the pattern which is probably a product of the U. S. Glass Co. in the 1890s.
We have found Robinson's Zanesville pattern in a number of different decorations and this tall stately water pitcher with an enameled floral spray one of the prettiest.
