 :hi:  Does anyone know the pattern name, or age of this little crystal bowl.  Well, not that little -- about 7 inches wide at top, and 3 inches deep.

Thanks.

Not seen it before as far as I know but  I *believe* the lower pattern is commonly known as 'cane', the upper band known as 'pleat'.  Hope that helps.  Maybe look at patterns by Gillinder & Sons or McKey.  Hope someone will confirm this and add more info.

Edit:  Not much help but in searching [eapg cane] I ran across this cake platter which matches your bowl.  Unforturnately no pattern was given... http://www.tias.com/5598/PictPage/1920747137.html

Thanks cubby01.  
I will try to keep looking too, but using your info too  :thup:

Just a question:  It is not what is called American Brilliant Cut Glass -- being that is has such sparkle to it??

Hello

I don't think this is EAPG, both the bowl and the platter look more 1980s than 1880s to me.

Hi Sid  :hi: (neighbor)  - I was typing while you were posting -- and I said in just the post before you:

As I was wondering IF this might be such -- that is a good link above, IF this is Brilliant cut Glass.............?

Hello back!

It doesn't look cut to me.  Is it lead crystal?

Hmmm, based on the picture I would have bet on it being pressed glass (as opposed to cut glass).  Whether it is old pressed glass - Early American Pattern Glass (EAPG) - or newer is often hard to tell.

Are mold lines evident?  

(brief time passes)

Ah, it is newer.  It looks like Windsor pattern, aka canes and buttons I think, by Federal Glass.  According to replacements.com the pattern is from 1974.  (often molds are bought and put back into action so another glass company may have produced this pattern earlier - don't know.)

:hiclp:  Thank you ever so much. 
With that info, I think I was able to identify the rest of it.  It is called a "Federal Glass: Windsor Clear Round Vegetable Bowl" and as stated from 1974.
