During a recent trip to Arizona I picked up this blue creamer. I didn’t know anything about it and decided to take a chance that it was an older piece.
I have learned alot about its possible provenance although I do not definitively know its origin.
I posted the piece on the great Facebook site – Vintage Glass Identification – as I couldn’t find anything in my own resources to give me a hint as to the pattern name and history. This is a great site. Members are very eager to identify pieces and I had a response in no time flat.
I learned that the original EAPG manufacturer of this Wildflower pattern was Adams & Company of Pittsburgh. It was Adams’ pattern no. 140. When Adams merged with U.S. Glass in the late 1890s, this company likely continued to produce this pattern. I was also advised that the piece was reproduced for the L.G. Wright Company of New Martinsville, West Virginia. The Glass Encyclopedia provided some historical information about the company. The company used original molds, or purchased molds and had other companies produced the finished pieces for it. This was one of the patterns that they produced.
The website Sean George Pressed Glass & Goblets provides more history about this pattern and points out that pieces have been produced by L.G. Wright, Crystal Art Glass (Cambridge, Ohio), Summit Art Glass (Akron, Ohio) and by Mosser Glass Co. (Cambridge, Ohio).
Long story short – no idea who made this particular piece and/or when. But it is pretty.
