1901 Unknown. ANTIQUE HANDCRAFTED WOOD & STEEL WATER LEVEL GAUGE.
Unknown. 
The frame consists of two 3 x 1 3/4 x 54 l. maple pieces spaced about 1 apart joined at the top and near the bottom by maple crossbars. One of the vertical pieces is impressed with a numbered scale of 36 graduated by the 1/4. A steelcounterweight slides up & down in grooves cut into the inside of each of the vertical pieces attached to which is a steel pointer that rides up & down the face of the scale. Attached to the top of the vertical pieces is a steel mount for a pulley aligned so that a brass plumber's chain attached to the counterweight is pulled between the vertical pieces and attachable to a float (not present). The bottom of the scaled vertical piece has a curved section removed & an oval hole; the other piece has a round hole - the purposes of which are unknown. Scribe marks on both crossbars. Gauges of this type were used in railroad water towers, although they were much taller to measure feet. This gauge. of course, was designed for a lesser vessel. Since it was acquired at a farm sale, it was probably use with a holding tank or cistern for rain water. Very minor signs of use. Net weight about 15 lbs. This item will require special packing. PLEASE INQUIRE ABOUT SHIPPING COSTS BEFORE ORDERING, AS THEY WILL VARY GREATLY DEPENDING ON DESTINATION AND CARRIER.

There are atleast 5 patterns similar to this one that have been given a plethora of names by different glass authors. These names are generally not applied with any consistency, and often the same name is applied to two or more patternswhich can be or could be differentiated. Matters are further complicated by the lack of catalog or other illustrations showing which pieces belong to the same table set. See Welker, Pressed Glass in America, p.447 fordetails, and where she places this sugar's pattern in Group #5.

1948 Unknown. PATTERN GLASS: MIOTON - TYPE GOBLET WITH RINGED STEM.
Unknown. 
Crystal. Non-flint. Round stem. Flutes are topped by scallops. Maker unknown. Thispattern is not McKee & Brothers' Mioton, which was made in flint glass and is consistently shown in their catalogs with a hexagonal stem whether plain or ringed from 1859/60 thru 1880. Ruth Lee Webb got it right in her EAPG where she correctly identifies a McKee goblet. The confusion begins latterwith Millard who in Bk. 1 shows a flint, ringed goblet without attribution that is consistent with McKee's catalogs, but in Bk. 2 applies Mioton to two goblets with round stems & rings, one of which be described as having scallops at the top of the flutes. Also in Bk. 2 he shows a goblet with a round stem he names Short Loops, which is light and has short loops, low on the bowl. This goblet is better shown in Metz Bk. 1 where it appears without scallops & the flutes lower on the bowl. Metz (Bk. 1) shows a McKee type goblet as Mioton, but says Millard shows it with a ring stem. Millard's, however, has a round stem. Whatever the case, there is noevidence that the goblet offered here is attributable to McKee. Heat checks are present in the glass o/w Fine (No defects).
