Ashman (identical to Adams Paragon but with concave panels) ; often confused or blended with Heavy Panel Fine Cut (George Duncan & Sons) and Daisy & Buttons with Crossbars (Richards and Hartley). Amber, a beautiful rich honey color.
Antique Early American Pattern Glass (EAPG) c. Base - 5 3/4" square, 2 7/8" high to the rim and 9 high to the finale. Oil or Vinegar Bottle - 5 1/2" high without the stopper, 7 1/4" high with and 2 square outer.
Mustard or Preserves and Standard Shaker Bottles - 5 1/4 high with the lid. Shaker Bottle, Sifter Top - 5 high with the lid. Weight, prepackaged: 3 lbs 5.9 oz as a set. Condition: The base has light chipping around the underside of the bottle holes, common to the pattern. The underside of the rim has some light rough spots and a few minor nicks, none effecting the shape.
The underside is free of damage and there are no cracks, both common issues. Castor bases can be found with 2 different designs in the recess; plant or cross bars.This base has the plant design. All the bottles are free of chips, cracks and fleabites, however the bottles were created using the stuck-up method leaving rough and unfinished rims underneath the lids. The glass is wonderfully clear and free of cloudiness, except some slight mineral deposits in the bottom of the larger mouth shaker and cruet. The bottles all have concave (recessed) panels.
The cruet stopper is a perfect fit, but may not be original, we've seen many different stopper designs on paragon sets in different colors and all have been called original. The mustard, shaker and sifter tops are original and in great condition for their age. The castor handle is in good condition with age appropriate wear and patina.The hardware on the underside appears original. It's a fantastic set and in excellent condition overall. It will make a superb addition to an EAPG collection or on it's own. Pictures are of the item(s) you will receive.
