stands for Anchor Hocking’s Early American Prescut line of
glass, line number 700 series. With the exception of some pieces as
listed further down, it was produced from 1960 -1974.
EAPC, not Prescut for short, has become the term used
collectors to describe three sets of very similar patterns that have
very similar names. Two of those sets of patterns are not EAPC. Those
would be Prescut Pineapple and Prescut Oatmeal produced from 1941 to
the 1970's. They are are considered EAPC go-withs or the other
patterns. The original intent of the EAPC designation was that it only
be used to identify Pattern Line Numbers in the 700 series. Again, EAPC
does not include Anchor Hocking’s Prescut Line
called Pineapple or the Prescut line called Oatmeal. You may also have
seen what looks like a pattern name: Prescut Oatmeal and Pineapple.
We do not think this is actually a pattern name.
Who knew that over 50 years later, these three would cause
regarding their official pattern names. What we are dealing with is the
Anchor Hocking craft of confusion considering the similar names used
for these patterns: Prescut-Pineapple, Prescut-Oatmeal and then Early
American Prescut. See the confusion. They all say Prescut.
Prescut is not EAPC or Early American Prescut. EAPC is actually the
last pattern produced in this chain of not only similar names but
similar pattern motifs. Given the Early in EAPC, you’d think it
was the first pattern line produced in this trio yet it is the last.
I’m choosing to lump these patterns together in the database
obvious reasons. I’d like to also add that Anchor Hocking’s EAPC and
Prescut lines should not be confused with the older pattern McKee Glass
produced also called PresCut. Are you scratching your head yet?
PRESCUT aka STAR OF DAVID
All the pieces in this pattern have the star on them with the
of the cup and double candle. EAPC was one of Anchor Hocking's most
popular kitchen patterns. Many of the pieces of EAPC were sold for a
very limited time (in some cases only a year). These pieces are quite
difficult to find. The cocktail shaker is the most difficult piece to
find, followed by the oil lamp. The 11-3/4 inch paneled bowl and the 11
inch plate with swirled dividers are scarce too. There is a bud vase
and a sherbet that sells for a tremendous price but few collectors will
pay high prices for small pieces in this pattern.(3)
