Lacy glass is early pressed glass made from 1830 to 1860. It is dubbed “lacy” because the pieces usually display an all-over pattern reminiscent of a doily, such as these pieces from the All Boston and Sandwich Co. that are part of the Houston Museum’s collection. The large bowl shows a beehive pattern and the saucer, at left, a heart pattern. The sleigh-shaped salt dish is an extremely rare piece of glass from 1835, according to museum manager Amy Autenreith.
