About Us – Art Deco Pressed Glass

We have created this website to share pictures and information with other people who share our love of Art Deco Pressed Glass.

The purchase of a pair of frosted glass mermaid candlesticks from a local antiques fair in 2000, which we later discovered were made by the German glass manufacturer August Walther & Sohne, was the beginning of what has become a passion for collecting.

Our main interest is in Figural Flower Frogs and Float Bowls, although our collection has extended and includes lamps, vanity sets, glass comports and other interesting items.

Shown in this collection are examples by August Walther & Sohne, S. Reich, Brockwitz, Baccarat, Riedel, Jobling, Bagley, Sowerby, Cambridge, other manufacturers plus some which are as yet unidentified.

We’ve named each example where known, however, there are some gaps, any help in attributing these pieces would be greatly appreciated. The miscellaneous section contains pictures of glass from various known and unknown manufacturers.
