Collectors take note: Woody Auction stresses that if a piece is labeled as “ABCG,” it is confident the piece is 100 percent American Brilliant Cut Glass. If a piece is labeled “BPCG,” it is confident the piece is Brilliant Period Cut Glass, but it may or may not be American. If a piece is labeled simply as “Cut Glass,” Woody Auction does not make any firm statement as to the age or maker of that item.
