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.

The Antique Thumbprint releases had a less dramatic bowl and more refined crimps, bringing it more stylistic with the 1960s.
