There are so many varieties and patterns of antique glass which were blown into 2 piece or 3 piece molds, hand blown like art glass in many colors and shapes, fitted with holders or overlay of silver, used just to decorate or became part of dining table service. Glass was also used in making bottles for dairy, medicine, apothecary measures & bottles, whiskey & beer, soda, & later cosmetics & creams plus perfumes. Glass composition used to contain lead ( leaded glass until about 1860) & can be determined by the slight grey color & heavier weight. Glass items may or may not have a pontil mark on the bottom left by the glass blower, or company makers mark and/or date or nothing at all on the bottom. Color or no color (clear) also determines value but you must know which colors (and/or shades) were originally offered by the maker. Many makers of pattern glass sold their companies and their molds allowing the buyers to remake the old patterns and put new names on them confusing everyone. The identity of a pattern is best determined by a research book with hand drawn glass items so you can visually figure out which glass pattern you may have. We have provided a Reference Work page of books relevant to researching your glass items.
