PRESSED GLASS = US Glass Co - Bullet Emblem
« on: August 08, 2006, 08:32:27 PM »
I have two pieces , abutter dish and a sugar bowl, of pressed glass that are embossed with eagles and cannons with the eagles over a thirteen star shield.  The tops of each have a glass bullet for a handle.  Can anyone enlighten me as to what I have and if they have value.  They have been in the family for over 100 years.

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Hello:

Very desirable glass items!  The pattern is called Bullet Emblem by collectors and was made by the US Glass Co. c1898.  Condition is extremely important in the valuation of these items.  For some idea on the potential value do a google search on "bullet emblem" and visit a site or two.

Your piece is Early American Pattern Glass - EAPG.  The pattern is called Bullet Emblem and was made by U.S. Glass Compnay in 1898 as a Spanish-American War commerative. The pieces were originally decorated in red, white and blue and the bullet was silver.

It  was made in a table set - covered butterdish, covered sugar bowl, creamer, and spooner.

It is a nice piece and one that I have never seen "in person."

Edited:   :lol: Sid - we were posting at the same time.
