    Hello Board Friends - I normally don't post multiple items but as these are related and were purchased together I thought it might be helpful to see them as a lot. The slipper wall pocket is 6" long, the dust pan is 7 1/4" long and the top hat is just a little under 2 1/2" tall. The top hat pops up all over the internet so I'm sure there is a way to tell if it's EAPG or not but I just don't know about the other two. All three react strongly to black light. Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you very much.

    Can't remember exactly, but I believe it was Kemple who might have remade these. Don't know if they made Uranium glass.

    An area to look at.

    All three pieces were originally made in the 1884-6 color period by factories in th Pittsburgh area.

    The shoe on the left is a match holder (hang on the wall), a product of Central Glass Co. of Wheeling, WV. I don't believe it has been reproduced. The Whisk Broom was patented, and probably made by Campbell, Jones, Pittsburgh, also made by Geo Duncan & Sons, also from Pittsburgh. If the end of the handle is smooth, no flats, it was made by Imperial, if it has triangular flats on it, it was made by Either Campbell, Jones or Geo. Duncan & Sons. If the Hat has ground and polished spots on the top (the flat area opposite the opening) it too was made by Geo Duncan & Sons,l if not, all bets are off and could have been made by any number of companies in the middle of the 20th century.

    Edit: Correct error.

    Thank you all so much for the helpful information. For the record, the Whisk Broom has triangular flats. I believe the top of the hat is polished. It has a much nicer feel than most of these hat have. It is also lighter in weight than examples from other companies.

    Don, and any others, Re; the hat, the four octagonal "hobnails" on the "corners" of the top were left long in the mold so they could be ground and polished to give the surface a flat place to sit.

    It has a bit of wobble but sits pretty well.

    Great photos. The whisk pan, the only time I have ever seen anything like that was in Chalaine.
    Much good luck.

    Thanks, pearls, that's very kind. Not much of a sales history on these so I'll have to dig a little to find fair prices. It may help now that I know what the proper names for the whisk broom and the match holder. :) I don't have much invested so hopefully there will be a little profit in these. Match holder does have a few chips.
