The Early American Pattern Glass Society would like to thank the “Webfooters Post Card Club” and Carole White and Dennis Headrick for sharing this interesting piece of glass history research with our members. This article was published in two parts in the June and July 2009 issue of the Webfooters Newsletter.
Post cards containing photographic images only came into production in 1900 and in 1901 Post Office Regulations first called for the word Post Card to be printed on the address side of the card. With this in mind there is only about a 20 year window of time when pressed glass factory images may have been printed on a post card.
