    I’m looking for any information on this particular item. I have found several pieces similar to it on eBay but nothing with the exact pattern and the prices vary from 25 to 3 to 400. Anyone with information that can help me identify what year make and model this was made would greatly be appreciated.

    Thank you Very much for your research. I’m interested in selling it you wouldn’t happen to know what would be a decent price to list it for? I’m just so happy to finally have found the pattern and appreciate your time.

    EAPG is a down market right now and Bellaire does not appear to be an exception. If selling at auction I'd start at $29.99 just in case there is someone out there waiting for it. If it failed to attract a bid I'd list it on a buy-it-now for $29.99. If it failed to sell after a month or two I'd lower it by $10 and let it ride for about a year. Then I'd drop it again by another $5 or do a whole new listing at $14.99 All this is my own opinion and depends a lot on how quickly you want to sell. Also dependent upon condition. I'm assuming there is nothing wrong with it beyond minor shelf wear.

    Good advice and judging from what I see on eBay you’ve hit the nail on the head but at least I know how to list it. And who knows maybe someone out there is looking for the specific piece. Everyone’s been a great help and I have enjoyed this site tremendously. Thank you for your help. Cheryl

    I notice that you are calling this "flint glass" which it is not. Im the USA flint is used to refer to glass with lead content in the formula which this does not. Makers called colorless glass crystal which caused the confusion for todays collectors as the EU calls glass with lead content crystal. The sure way to check is with a short wave UV light. If I were you I would use colorless or clear in the description and not mention flint.

    Hi,
    Thank you George for your explanation. I am getting tired of trying to explain the difference between flint glass and soda glass.
