How the panels of pressed glass were formed. Hand pressed were typically thicker, resulting in a deeper thumbprint. Machine was thinner, as too thick and machines couldn't release.
How glass is stained. Normally this is a painted on substance that once refired causes a lasting colored stain. Metalic colors are slightly different and were always hand-painted.

ColorRange
Crystal1946 - 1962

As staining can be done at any time against the glass, variants are possible. Our standard colors reflect only those known to have been applyed by the manufacturer.


Notes
Similar in style to the original US Glass Dubonnet pieces. The top row on the well, and the bottom row on the stem, of Crowns/Teeth are missing. The thumbprints along the stem are almost flat. Like a bad copy of a copy.
