Early American Prescut, commonly called EAPC, is an attractive pattern that features a
starburst design with a "Star-of-David" type star. All EAPC pieces have the "Star-of-David" in the design except the punch
cup and lazy susan inserts. A sister pattern, also by Anchor Hocking, is usually called Prescut or Oatmeal Glass by collectors
and has the same starburst pattern but lacks the "Star-of-David." Many pieces were made in this pattern, and they aren't all
shown here. This page shows a few common and not-so-common items so collectors will know what to look for.

Examples of EAPC By Anchor Hocking|
|EAPC 3-3/4" Coaster
This coaster is almost 3-3/4" across. It has a slightly upturned, scalloped edge. The bottom of the
coaster has four tiny "crossbars" to hold a tumbler up from the glass surface. It is not uncommon in clear glass, but collectors usually
want several. The brown glass coaster shown below is the only one I have ever seen.|
|EAPC 3-3/4" Coasters in Box This box holds six 3-3/4" eapc coasters. One coaster has it's original Anchor Hocking Early American Prescut sticker. The bottom of the box says "Another Fine Anchor Hocking Product, Lancaster, Ohio U.S.A." and the item number 700/702-1/12-C3. (In the photo, the box of coasters is sitting on the patterned lid.)|
|EAPC Coaster Soap Set in box This cute boxed set includes six 1-3/8" round rose-shaped soaps and one EAPC coaster. The bottom of the coaster has four tiny "crossbars" to hold a tumbler (or soap) up from the glass surface. The cardboard box is decorated with swirled shades of pink and teal. The design appears to be circa 1960s-1970s. The transparent plastic lid says "Guest Soap Set by Delagar." A fun example of creative marketing.|
|EAPC Small, Smooth Rim Bowl This cute little bowl measures almost 4-1/4" across and about 1-1/2" tall. It is smaller than the scalloped bowl shown below. It is somewhat difficult to find.|
|EAPC Small Scalloped Bowl This small bowl measures 5-1/2" across and 2-1/4" tall. (That's a penny in the photo for scale.) This scalloped-edge bowl can be used by itself, as part of the chip and dip, or as the center to the lazy susan.|
|EAPC 8-5/8" Round Serving Bowl This medium sized round bowl is 8-5/8" across and 3-1/4" tall. This size is a little bit more difficult to find than the large (10-3/4") serving bowl.|
|EAPC Chip and Dip in Box The Chip and Dip set consists of one small 5-1/2" bowl, one 10-3/4" bowl, and one goldtone metal holder. This set came in a red, white, and blue box. The goldtone metal holder may sometimes have small spots of discoloration.|
|EAPC Paneled Serving Bowl This large round bowl measures 11-3/4" across at the widest point and is just over 3-1/4" tall. The bowl has eight curved panels. It can be difficult to find.|
|EAPC Oval Serving Bowl This oval bowl measures 5-3/4" X just under 9" across the top, and 1-7/8" tall. It is not rare, but is such a handy size that most collectors want more than one.|
|EAPC Footed Oval Serving Bowl Metal was added to some EAPC items. In this example, the oval serving bowl has a metal foot.|
||EAPC Round Amber or Blue Bowl This pretty bowl is round, with a smooth rim. It is made of transparent, light blue glass or transparent amber glass. The color is in the glass itself - it is not flashed on. The bowl measures 7-1/4" across and about 2" tall. These colored bowls can be difficult to find.|
|EAPC Amber 3-Footed Bowl This bowl has a scalloped edge and three tiny tab feet. It is made of transparent, amber glass. The color is in the glass itself - it is not flashed on. This shape is relatively common in clear glass and somewhat hard to find in amber. The bowl measures 6-3/4" across and about 2-5/8" tall.|
|EAPC Blue Sugar with Lid
Colored EAPC glass is more difficult to find than clear. This sugar bowl is made of
transparent, light blue glass. The glass itself is colored. The sugar can also be found in amber and green glass, shown below.
It measures about 5-3/8" tall to the top of the knob. Some sugar bowls have "flashed on"
color - when the coloring was sprayed onto clear glass. Those are not as desirable, and are not shown here.|
|EAPC Jam 'n Jelly
The EAPC Jam 'n Jelly dish was made using an EAPC sugar bowl bottom with a silverplate or
chrome lid, underplate, and spoon. This item is not a marriage; it was marketed this way by some companies. The photo on the left
shows an amber jam dish with a clear glass sugar and lid. The photos below show jam dishes with original boxes.|
|EAPC Syrup Server with Cream Colored Plastic Lid This syrup server is approximately 5-1/2" tall. It has a cream colored plastic lid with a handle that is almost vertical.|
