Eyewinker Tumblers Pressed Glass or Leaded ?
« on: August 19, 2018, 12:08:35 AM »
Hello,

I have a set of these tumblers that I would love to use on a daily basis, but if they are made of leaded glass I will save them for special occasions. 

I cannot find information to verify if these are newer Moser glass or older ones possibly made with leaded crystal.

Thank you.

Original production late 1880's, well past leaded pressed glass period in U.S. Most glass houses switched to soda-lime formula for pressed glass by late 1860's. Some semi-flint pressed glass produced by east coast glass houses in this period. 1870 considered a good cut off date for leaded pressed glass in U.S. Soda-lime formula a major cost savings. This pattern also reproduced by L.G. Wright c. 1970's.
