$67.50 $90.00

A large EAPG (early American pressed glass) Adams Square Panes glass compote with a lid in the Post pattern.

This tall clear glass compote with a lid is about 135 years old. This antique piece has a unique square shape on the top section as well as on the base which has four feet or little legs. A distinct square shaped finial or knob is on the top of the lid. The center pedestal section is square as well giving it an all over square look - a unique design.

This tall and impressive glass jar or compote was manufactured by the Adams and Company, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania between 1882-1887 - see NOTE below.

This tall glass lidded pedestal jar measures 12 inches tall to the top of the knob on the lid. It is 6 1/2 inches square.

This vintage piece is heavy as this is large and the glass is thick. lt weighs over 7 lbs. before packaging for shipment.

The pedestal base (main piece) of this pedestal jar is on nice antique condition with no chips or cracks. There is a large chip on one corner of the lid that is in both the inside and the outside rims and a couple of much smaller chips on the lid as well. See photos for detail. The legs must not be exactly level as the compote doesn't sit exactly even in a flat surface. The item's price reflects its condition.

Still a great piece of antique Glass.
