As of January 1, 2017 I will be closing my business.
My name is Phyllis Petcoff and I have collected …and formerly sold 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 50 years and was a dealer for more than 30 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.
As I retire my business of buying and selling EAPG reluctantly, I would like to keep an informational website to promote EAPG, answer questions, and provide information for those who have an interest in this beautiful glass. Items listed and pictured are pieces I have gathered information and photos myself or from others. None are for sale by me and are listed for information only. As I reconfigure my website, there may be gaps and/or errors for a time.
If you would like to join others interested in EAPG, consider membership in the Early American Pattern Glass Society.
