Of all the dishes that have come and gone through my cupboards, hutches, cabinets and collections the Early American Prescut are the stars. The 'Star of David Pattern' is perhaps one of the most collected patterns of prescut patterns with it's easily recognized 'Star of David' centerpiece.
EAPC was made by Anchor Hocking Glass Company from 1960 through 1999. This pattern is designated as the 700 Line in Anchor Hockings catalogs with every piece having the star except for the Double Candle Holder which has a center knob, and the punch cup. Punch cups and saucers along with small berry bowls and juice glasses were some of the first EAPC's packed in oatmeal and therefore officially known as 'Oatmeal'. Several sizes of prescut/oatmeal juice glasses were packed with jelly, making them cupboard collectibles.
Oil Lamp, Double Candle Holders, Eight Paneled Bowl....(bottom tier),
Square Pitcher...(above photo), Deviled Egg Plate...(above photo),
Lazy Susan with rack, Snack Plates, and several small plates and bowls.
The Rarest Piece made was a 5 inch Rosebud Vase...it is in the Anchor Hocking EAPC Museum. Most of my collection of EAPC is from Thrift Stores, Junktique Shops, Flea Markets and Garage Sales...the hunt is part of the thrill of collecting.
My one Oil Lamp I bought on eBay and was the most money I ever paid for any piece, and yet my most precious and prized pieces were bought with Green Stamps.
Who knew a 'Butter Dish' would one day be priceless!
