In respect to this, what does EAPG glass mean?
Early American Pattern Glass
Also Know, when was pressed glass made? Pressed Glass, also referred to as Pattern Glass, was produced between 1850 to 1910. The majority was produced in the 1880's. When it was originally designed, it was intended for everyday use and was made to be very durable and at the same time, attractive.
In this regard, is Pressed Glass valuable?
Colored glass that is pressed can be of significant value however soda lime or flint glass typically isn't all that valuable. Avoid glassware with chips, cracks, or abrasions. If your pressed glass piece is a bottle, learn how to tell how old your bottle is here.
Does vintage glass have seams?
A related characteristic is the coarseness of the edges along the mold lines. Early glass was pressed into the mold for much longer and the molds were clamped together with less pressure than is modern glass. On modern glass, the mold seams are very smooth. Bubbles occur in all glass but are more common in old glass.
