Thank you for contacting us. I went through our Consolidated catalogs here and a few pressed glass reference books. I have not yet been able to find the name of the pattern you mentioned. I did find it in an online search though. I find it slightly strange that the online references point to the pattern being made in 1890-1900, but that it was not listed in our books with other patterns from that time-frame. I am wondering if you know the years it was made? I am attaching two documents for you. One is a brief history of Consolidated, it may help to explain why some references have mentioned Pittsburgh Glass. The second scan is an excerpt from a trade catalog we have. I went through about 16 of our trade catalogs dated approximately 1894-1945 trying to find pieces similar to yours in the beaded drape pattern, but had no luck. I have copied a few pages that show the colors I think you mentioned in your note. We have made the full catalog available online here: or with background information from our website: I am also attaching a bibliography on pressed glass that you may find helpful. If you are interested in obtaining copies of any of the books listed, please take the citation to your local library and ask the librarian to request the item through Inter-Library Loan. The item will then be lent to your local library where you will be able to conduct research. Please let me know any additional information you may have about the pattern or the company and how you would like me to proceed. Attachment(s) included: Pressed glass Books.doc, Consolidated catalog 1894.pdf, Consolidated history.pdf
