AVON 1876 CAPE COD RUBY RED GLASS PLATTER BOWL CRUETS

"THE 1876 CAPE COD COLLECTION
The glassware of the 1876 Cape Cod Collection is reminiscent of early American pressed glass called "Sandwich Glass". It featured lacy, intricate designs, fine background stippling, and exquisite brilliance which reflected the superb craftsmanship
of its makers. Many of the detailed designs of this prized glass were produced by the Boston& Sandwich Glass Works
founded on Cape Cod in 1825. This unique Avon 1876 Cape Cod Collection was inspired by the classic Roman Rosette pattern. The collection name commemorates both the spirit of the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial, the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and, Cape Cod, the area w Sandwich glass originated.

CONDITION RATINGS
MINT - In the same condition as when it left the store. Very few vintage and antique items can claim this.
NEAR MINT - No problems, as close to "new" as possible for age.
EXCELLENT - Shows normal wear expected for age, but nothing easily visible.
VERY GOOD - Shows normal wear expected for age with some minor problems visible, but problems will not detract.
GOOD - Has some definite visual problems. Structure is intact. Problems could be fixed.
I will seldom if ever offer anything that rates lower than GOOD, but might on occasion if item is extremely rare or hard to find in any condition. I describe everything in detail as to condition, but these ratings should be helpful.
