Thank you for that informationb, Sid.  When I read McCain's I wasn't sure if they were the same compnay or different outputs.  As I said before, although I have bought and sold many pieces of EAPG over the years, it is not my forte  :oops:

Here we go again with a fresh photograph

I have meanwhile heard from Geiselberger who has never come across anything like it.  

So, to recap: not French, not German, not Czech, not Danish, not Dutch; perhaps EAPG or perhaps English.

Could they be custard cups?

I always judged my set to be quite recent, but now... I'll investigate it more thoroughly tomorrow  :)

Hello:

Given Pamela's set, I think we can definitely stroke EAPG off the list of possibilities.

Just this afternoon had the visit of a person whose first idea was "Stourbridge - British in any case"
Ivo, is the base of yours ground? Mines are not, that's it what made me think, they could be contemporary  :x

no, no grinding and no wear - but the fiery glow of old opal glass...! Now if it is a deliberate falsification - what does it falsify?

I do not know whom or what, Ivo, to me it is still Spain, sorry about that!

Ivo,
The pattern looks very similar to Mardi Gras, #42, Duncan Glass Company, Washington PA late 1800's.

My first instinct is USA, it still is. Their 1930s glass didn't have ground bases and they made a lot of milk (and pink) glass and were keen on the complex patterns.

The latest suggestion received from Geiselberger is that it might be from Belgium - notably from the glass works at Ghlin, because the feet on their creamers is much the same.  I know it is not a lot to go by.

On much the same grounds Frank has suggested Spain (thank you!) - but I'm more inclined to believe Belgium.

The Mardi Gras from Duncan is another good suggestion, however it lacks the pearls on the vertical flutes and the edge is distinctly different.

Keep your eyes open.
Thanks for all the input.
Ivo
