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.
Color / Year Information
ColorRange
Crystalc1950 - c1975

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
The oil tank has only two seams. The handle has a match strike on the top. It appears to have three mould pieces, tooth-band and thumbprint base, a ridge-banded holder for the tank, and the handle.
