American silvered glass:
Silvered glass was made in the
United States beginning about
1853, by several prominent
companies in the greater Boston
MA, area. Sandwich Glass Works,
New England Glass Company and
the Boston Silver Glass Company
produced tableware until 1880.
The 6" flint Goblet on the right

ANTIQUE
MERCURY
GLASS!
Very rare Wheel
engraved
goblet, with
unusually
fine detail. The
design is
anglo-Irish, with a
leaf and ribbon
semi-wreath
which was likely
made at the Boston
& Sandwich
Glass Company,
Cape Cod,
MA, circa 1860-70.
This taper holder,
goblet
or spooner was
expertly
engraved in the
"vintage" pattern
and consists of
grapes, leaves,
tendrils and vines
all around the
exterior surface.
The piece has the
original seal, a
simple cork, which
was embedded in the
rough pontil scar,
underfoot.
This very rare 3-piece table set,
consisting of a covered sugar,
cream pitcher, and goblet was
probably custom engraved to
commemorate a special occasion.
With beautiful "vintage" detail,
the set is dated "Dec. 14th,
1864," and was likely made at
the Boston & Sandwich Glass
Company, Cape Cod, MA. Made of
heavy flint glass, each piece has
a small cork
in the rough pontil scar
underfoot.
LARGE PRESENTATION GOBLET
WITH FINE Quality CUSTOM
WHEEL ENGRAVING

Probably made by the New
England Glass Company,
Cambridge, MA circa 1855-70.
This very rare, near mint
presentation chalice or goblet
was free blown from flint
lead glass, and expertly
engraved with a leaf, floral
and fern wreath cartouche
and the initials "J.W." in Old
English script. The stem is
unusually fine, with a round
knop and balustrade shape,
and the piece has its original
cork seal with a treated
reddish silver paper film over
the bottom.

This is A recent, and prized  
acquisition from a dealer
friend in Kennebunk, ME
AN UNUSUALLY TALL
SIZED PRESENTATION
GOBLET

Wheel engraved in the
"vintage" pattern, the depth
and detail of the engraved
grapes, tendrils and leaves is
quite remarkable. Retaining its
original cork seal, this flint
glass, free blown goblet was
probably made at the Boston
Silver Glass Company, the
Boston & sandwich Glass Co.,
or the New England Glass
Company circa 1855-70.
