- Pattern: Unknown
- Made in: Pittsburgh, PA, USA
- Antique: 1859 – 1903
- Details: This is an outstanding example of EAPG, in a beautiful light amber glass. It is an antique, and although we don’t know exactly when this platter was made, we know Atterbury didn’t start making tableware until around their later years, possibly starting in the 1860’s. This is a very RARE find, and it’s in wonderful condition, considering it’s age (there are two minor chips, see “Condition” below). The design is quite beautiful, with a mix of several different patterns. There’s the pebbled bottom surface, we believe this was known as “thousand eye”. There are geometric forms along the border with daisies on the built in handles. There is also that beautiful notched rim, all together, they make a really spectacular platter.
- Material: Glass
- Dimensions: 13.25 inches Long, 9.25 inches Wide and approx. 1.25 inches Tall
- Condition: Antique – Used. Very Good Condition. There are two chips, one on the rim and one visible when you turn it upside down, on the bottom ring. There are minor surface scratches as acceptable due to age/use/wear. These pressed glass pieces were seldom finely sanded, some edges are a bit sharp, especially the notches.

Atterbury & Company was started in 1859 by James Hale, James S. and Thomas B. Atterbury as “Hale, Atterbury and Co” in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Various name changes occurred until 1893 when it was finally named “Atterbury Glass Co” with James Atterbury as President. They produced many different glass items like: canning jars, bottles, fruit jars, etc., however, they became best known for their animal shaped dishes. They were also known for their glass lamp designs and received over 100 patents for them. They ran a successful company until financial problems arose in the late 1880’s. In 1903 Atterbury and Co. joined with several others to form a new single company called the “United States Glass Company”.
