Cut glass is the oldest of the different techniques which goes back some 2,000 years.
Early American Pattern Glass (EAPG), also known as pressed glass, was produced from roughly 1850 to 1910. This type of glass was cheaper to manufacture than blown glass and was an economic alternative to hand cut crystal. During the Great Depression Americans turned to pattern glass which is now referred to as Depression glass.
