Re: Green & gold patterned glass vase

in reply to legessi

Gerry ~ the problem with the green vase is that the pattern is atypical and I can't think of any reference book it's in, only a catalog pic I have.  It comes in 2 versions, this one and a squat version, in crystal and in green.  EAPGPatterns has 8,500 Photographed EAPG Items representing Over 2,700 Patterns amd growing.  Think of the books a person would have to buy to get that!

 

My point of course is that some are rigid about not paying for information, even those who boast they paid $1 for an item and have spent hours looking for an i.d. I've done my free i.d. bit, starting with the defunct eBay Glass Chat after I joined eBay in 1998, I estimate I did over 13,000 free i.d.s and it really wasn't all that gratifying, especially since it took me away from hours when I should have been selling.

It helps to know what pressed glass book you're referring to.

Re: Green & gold patterned glass vase

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays DoRi.....I completely understand where you are coming from.  I like learning and researching and don't mind paying for ID's if I think I have an item worth paying for and of course I have nearly every subscription out there as well. 

 

I also understand your point, you cant give away your time..you need to make a living.  Thats how I felt a few years ago when I was constantly being asked about horse breeding...when I started charging for my time, my client base improved and I had more time to do what I needed to.

 

I like the thrill of the chase with finding an ID but I will admit to being frustrated at times when they all start to run together :-)

Re: Green & gold patterned glass vase

The book that I found this in is the Standard Encyclopedia of Pressed Glass, Second Edition 1860-1930 Identification and Value by Bill Edwards and Mike Carwile.  2000 edition and the pattern in question is on page 129.   Since I sell antiques and collectibles in a brick and mortar store and also here on line, I have a collection of over 300 reference books covering a wide range of topics.  This is the only place that I have seen this pattern identified.  And not even in the green glass. But the date of 1894 issue would be in the neighborhood of when it was aquired by my Grandmother.  And since my green vase appears to be the exact same pattern and vase as pictured, that is what I am going by. 

COYOTES RULE!!!

Creekcoyote, thanks for the info about the book where you located the vase.

 

As for paid sites, I can understand that anyone who put a lot of work into creating a website to help others identify their items would want their effort compensated. I wish I could justify paying for site subscriptions, and would if I sold items in just a few categories, But I sell a lot of different types of items, mostly low-cost, and the fees would quickly add up and not be cost-effective.

creek ~ Their books are not held in high regard by EAPG people and there's a list of errors/corrections online that was compiled by an EAPG specialist when the first book came out. It would help if you posted the photo you're referring to but the pattern elements are common in EAPG.  The vase still hasn't been identified.

Re: Green & gold patterned glass vase

That color green became available in 1898, severala companies introduced  it in that year. Producton continued for about three years.
