Gather pressed by a metal plunger into a mould, either by hand or as part of a mechanised process
19th century glasswares formed by mechanical pressure applied to molten glass in a mould. See also Moulded glass.
made by pressing molten glass into a mold to form its shape.
Glassware that is formed by pressing a gob between a mold and a plunger.
Glassware formed by placing a blob of molten glass in a metal mold, then pressing it with a metal plunger or "follower" to form the inside shape. The resultant piece, termed "mold-pressed," has an interior form independent of the exterior, in contrast to mold-blown glass, whose interior corresponds to the outer form. The process of pressing glass was first mechanized in the United States between 1820 and 1830.
Early 19th century invention, exploited rapidly in America, wherby mechanical pressure was used to form glassware in a mold.
Not really an object but a technique, almost anything made of thin glass has been made of pressed glass, which is marked by a smooth inner surface and sharp impressed outside decoration. Molten glass is pushed (pressed) into a mold by a matching inner core. Can be used as a technique. Pressed Glass Techniques
Early 19thC invention, exploited rapidly in America, whereby mechanical pressure was used to form glassware in a mould.
Made in a mould and often decorated in bas-relief (slightly raised) designs of vine leaves, gothic tracery and geometric patterns. It was most often used in screens or small windows.
Pressed glass is a form of glass made using a plunger to press molten glass into mold. It was first patented by American inventor John P. Bakewell in 1825 to make knobs for furniture.
