My goal is to provide data and information about EAPC that is as accurate as possible. So I’ve endeavored to verify every bit of information provided and as much as possible of that information by going to the source: measuring an actual piece and/or finding documentation for it in an Anchor Hocking catalog.

Each item page includes a table with detailed specifications: dimensions, capacity, Anchor Hocking part number, catalog years the item appeared, colors, etc. Some of these specifications have an asterisk (*) next to them. The asterisk (*) signifies that I have confirmed the validity of that data. How I verified the data depends on the type of data, which I’ve described below.


For dimensions, that means I’ve actually measured the item – if I had it in my collection – or asked a trusted source to measure one from their collection. Measurements are to the nearest quarter inch. Keep in mind that item dimensions can vary by ±1/8 inch.


For capacities, containers were filled to the rim to calculate how much they hold. Yep, all the way to the top. This seems to be how Anchor Hocking measured, too, because our results are similar to Anchor Hocking’s listings in their catalogs.

Part Numbers

I verify part numbers in three ways, either by a listing in an Anchor Hocking catalog, an Anchor Hocking ad, or an original box that has a part number printed on it.


What years an item appeared in a catalog is a little trickier. My initial dates, only available for some items, came from A Collector’s Guide to Anchor Hocking’s Fire-King Glassware by Kilgo & Wilkins.

I’m trying to verify these dates via Anchor Hocking Catalogs. Unfortunately finding old Anchor Hocking catalogs isn’t easy. I‘m getting there, though. You can see which catalogs I‘ve been able to consult on the Resources page.

If you have any Anchor Hocking Catalogs not listed on my Resources page, I would appreciate it if you could send me scans or photos of any pages that feature Prescut items along with scans or photos of the covers. It would be a big help to my research and this EAPC Knowledge Base.
