Description

The Museums collection includes a thumbprint goblet made about 185070 by Bakewell, Pears and Company of Pittsburgh (18361882). One of the earliest pressed- glass patterns used in the Pittsburgh area, thumbprint was an imitation of more expensive cut glass, with concave oval facets that create a highly reflective surface. These reproduction tumblers are based on the nineteenth-century original.

Includes 4 tumblers. Available in amethyst, clear, cobalt blue, olivine, or topaz. Semi- pressed glass. Dishwasher and microwave safe. 4 1/8''H x 3 1/2'' diam.

Art History

The development of pressed glass during the 1820s revolutionized glassmaking by enabling the molding and decorating of a glass object in a single process. By the late 1840s, glass-pressing technology had markedly improved, and the U.S. glass industry expanded as factories supplied affordable glassware to the growing middle class. At mid-century, most pressed glass was clear and bore simple geometric patterns, but it was soon followed by novel colors and ornate patterns.
