I believe this is Star of David or some call Early American Prescut by Anchor Hocking from the 1960s. Not sure if it is called something else out of the USA.

Early American Presscut had a 39 year run from 1960 to 1999.  Here in the states, it is common as dirt.  Only the oil lamp and a few other odd pieces are difficult to find.

It is very common yet because they made so many different items in this pattern one would be surprised how collectible it is. Great for a beginner to collect.  :lol: Especially in the original boxes.

I like it quite well, I have some from my grandmother, so I am interested in the knowledge of the "odd pieces".  Paul if you could list them for me I would be grateful.  Maybe I have one of those.  Thanks both!

Some of the items you are unlikely to find are the 5" Footed Bud Vase, a 9" Cocktail Shaker, and a 6 oz, 3 1/2" Footed Sherbet, all of which may have been experimental pieces.  From regular production, the 40 oz square pitcher, a 4 part relish with swirl dividers, a 5 part relish (13 1/2"), the 2 1/4" individual salt and peppers, and the iced tea tumblers are harder to find.  The colors, green, red and blue don't show up that frequently in upstate New York, but we do see quite a bit of the amber.

There is a closely related pattern called "Oatmeal" because, strangely enough, it was shipped as a premium in boxes of oatmeal.  The main difference is that it does not have the star.  

If I remember correctly, Oatmeal cups were shipped with the EAPC punchbowl, so the two patterns were intertwined directly from the factory.  

By the way, my wife also loves the EAPC pattern and can't seem to pass it up no matter how many duplicates we have.  I have a feeling if the price ever goes up, our heirs and assigns will be able to retire in style.

Wow great information for me.  I am just getting started in glass and see how addicting it is.  I love it.  The history for some reason really fascinates me.  I am very grateful for your help.  I will keep a list of the pieces, I have two of them for sure, but need to look and measure some of my other pieces.
