EAPG Teardrop and Tassel pattern glass creamer, 4"high, 3 1/2" wide, made by Greentown Glass (more properly, Indiana Tumber & Goblet Co. of Greentown, IN), which was in business from 1894 - 1903 when the factory burned. I had this in my collection for many years before I learned it was originally sold in bulk to packers who would fill it with their product (jelly, mustard, honey, other condiments or confections) and cap it with a lid, often of tin or other metal. It has a well defined inner rim about 1/2" below the edge to hold the lid. It tickles me to think this highly detailed, well-molded, and extravagantly patterned piece was used to tempt a buyer to purchase something so mundane. This is very clear, heavy, non-flint glass with no flakes or cracks though it does have a few teensy chips which you can feel on the underside of the creamer spout,as well as the typical mold marks, a bubble or two, and an annealing mark. Every time I catch sight of this creamer I have to pick it up, turn it around, and feel the design. It's a delightful piece but I'm downsizing and ready for someone else to enjoy it. I refund any excess shipping over $.50 when purchased through PayPal.
