Early American Pattern Glass (EAPG) Real or Reproduction Tutorial

RARE !!!!! HARD TO FIND !!! SCARCE !!! How do you know if it really IS rare? How do you know if the piece you found is real or reproduction? Sometimes it IS easy to tell if you know what to look for. For example, you find this really cute pitcher that looks like a log cabin. You google, and you think you have hit the mother load with a rare Central Glass Company’s Pattern #748, circa 1883 log cabin water pitcher. Maybe you did. The tell tale sign is, does the door have a handle? If it does, you did in fact find a RARE PIECE. The pattern was originally made in clear, amber, blue and canary (vaseline) and all pieces in color are extremely rare. No handle, no go !
