3 handled Pressed & Cut Centrepiece ?
« on: October 28, 2013, 03:34:14 PM »
Picked this up on a weekend in Wales, beautiful place, at my sons. It is 21cm in height. Bowl has a 16cm diameter without handles. Foot diameter of 11.5 cm. I am assuming the stem is the 'cut' I mentioned. 920g. It is a showy piece. Any ideas on age and maker please. The press glass site doesn't show. I have seen this pattern referred to as EAPG but would like some thoughts on this please.

with all that moulding I wouldn't have thought the stem was cut.             What makes you assume the stem is cut  -   should be easy enough to determine  -  usually, if cut, then no matter how carefully the stem was polished, you should still be able to see the remains of the original grinding marks - as feint lines when held to a strong light.
If not and it's all dead shiny then almost certainly the entire piece was pressed.

Must admit I don't recognize the design  -  you may well be correct and it could be EAPG - do you remember where you saw that comment? :)

edited to add....................  just looked at the last pic and seen the 'notches' - so you may well be correct and I might be completely wrong.
Please look for the grinding lines though on the stem.

The notches were the cut part. I will look for lines and let you know. Thanks Paul.

ah? bisto..........         I'd thought when first you said 'cut' that you were implying the actual profile of the stem had been cut.        I believe the States people were keen on these notches.
