EAPG Bowl on spatula feet.
« on: July 18, 2005, 07:24:03 AM »
Hi All

Here is an EAPG bowl with three spatula feet in Colorado/ Lacy Medallion pattern which is US Glass Co.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v325/d554to/BowlwithColoradoLacyMedallion.jpg

Question what is the pattern on the bowl, it is 8" in diameter and 5" high  I have had no luck as yet.

Is it US Glass Co?.

Tony, I can't solve this mystery for you, but I can add to the "bigger picture".

Back in 1996 (illustrated and reported in our "NetworK" #11) we showed a photo of the same item in Carnival Glass (marigold). It had been purchased by an Illinois couple at a Seeck Auction in St. Louis, 1995. We identified the pattern on the feet as "Colorado" but we could not identify the pattern on the body of the bowl. It was given the name "Split Diamond" in the Seeck Auction listing, but as this name is already known in Carnival (and refers to another item/pattern) it possibly isn't the best choice.

I'm not an expert in EAPG so hopefully someone else may know an earlier pattern name. However, nothing further has been reported within Carnival Glass circles since our first publication of the information back in 1996.

Tony and Glen, Ok I am not going crazy. I have poured over my book on US Glass by Heacock which is full of original catalog pages and came up blank. I am now on a quest and won't give up. If I find anything I will post it here. I also have a couple of people I need to ask. So hang in there Tony,  Terry

Hi Tony, Sorry I did not get back earlier. I did show your piece to some dealers and they thought was it is a product of U S Glass co. Now we have to get into a little history. In the early 1890s  USGC or United States Glass Company, was formed. It was not a single company, but a conglomerate of 15 companies. At the time of the merger there is an estimated 300 patterns of table sets being produced. Over the years new patterns were tried. We probably can even speculate that moulds were moved around and new things tried. In one book I have, mention is made of the fact that certain patterns are found in only one item with no matching pieces known. I know that at one time I had a "Snail" pattern swung vase. A leading "Expert" swore that it could not exist. IMHO we have only scratched the surface of USGC and my friends told me that research continues and they forsee new books on this fascinating company. And as far as your piece, their comments were "WOW" "Nice" Terry

Many thanks for info, would be nice to have some of Bill Heacock books do not see any here in NZ, I guess they are all out of print and are collectors items themselves by now.

How does Tiffin aka Factory R fit in US Glass companies?  I didn't see it on the list.
