Victorian pressed glass teapot
« on: June 25, 2014, 03:49:56 PM »
I have a pressed glass teapot where it is in all ways like a teapot except the lid is unremovable. It has the hallmarks of Victorian pressed glass with the hobnail motif etc. It is not marked with reg no or kite mark. Is this for something medical - i.e. for feeding  the sick and can anyone tell me where/when
 they were made. In fact would appreciate any info. It is about 6 inches tall.

Hello and welcome to the board!
You seem to have posted in the market place (for advertising glass for sale) - there is a glass identification section for info requests.
I'll  contact our technical wizard Anne to see if she can move it for you!

A larger picture and a base shot and a top shot would help. You can make each picture 125kb (I resize so that the longest dimension is 700 pixels) and post up to four per answer. The board makes the thumbnails

This item is Early American Pattern Glass (EAPG). In the 1890s, the United States Glass Co. had a line of items that were named after various states in the USA. Specifically, it's the No. 15054 Massachusetts pattern. If you do a Google search for "Massachusetts pattern glass" you'll see this piece as well as others from the line. I see this piece fairly frequently at antique shows and auctions.
