... to foster and encourage the collection, appreciation, study, preservation, and documentation of early American pattern glassware, and its place in American life, past and present.

The Pattern ID page on our website has changed dramatically. The new Pattern ID button on the Home page will take you to the largest, most accurate, and most complete database of pattern names and photos of glass.

Beginning in 2010, through our Facebook sponsored page, we have collected, cataloged, identified, and verified patterns and stored photos showing various forms of those patterns.  By 2019 our database has over 4,000 patterns and about 35,000 photos from active members. It keeps growing as more patterns are found, identified and verified.

By using the link here, you will be able to search the database by maker, pattern name -- OMN or AKA – motif or shape/form.  You can also browse the photos by these same categories when searching for a match to your item. If you join the Facebook Group you may also post a photo and ask for help with the ID.
