My name is Phyllis Petcoff and I sell and collect Early American Pattern Glass, sometimes called Early American Pressed Glass. Either term refers to mostly mid to late nineteenth century tableware having matching designs on the various pieces, such as goblets, four piece table sets, pitchers, bowls, etc. I have been a student of this antique glass, an American decorative art, for 40 years and a dealer for more than 25 years.
The generally accepted dates for Pattern Glass are from about 1830-1915, when continuous molding machines were put into use, making hand work unnecessary. This process gave birth to Depression type glass.
I have literally thousands of pattern glass pieces for sale from butter pats to large covered compotes. I also specialize in replacement parts. Given the large number of patterns made, it is very difficult to find the right EAPG lid, but check out my “Lid” list to see if we can be matchmakers. Click on the "For Sale" button to see what I have available. If you have further questions, or want a list for a specific pattern or form, please feel free to email me.
If you would like to join others interested in EAPG, consider membership in the Early American Pattern Glass Society.
