tikiray
(93 items)

I bought this today for $2. I thought it was black glass until I held it up to the sunlight. It glows a bright purple (pic 4). It has 3 mold marks on the sides. And a mark on the bottom that looks like two lines and part of a circle.

Anyone know anything about this vase? Thanks!

    That's too funny! I think Dizzydave's comment hits us all close to home. What an awesome find:)

    Thanks vintage! It's my new favorite find!

    That is beautiful, i have always found that most black glass is never really black but a dark purple? it must be a treatment in the process of makeing it.
  8. tikiray tikiray, 4 years ago
    Thanks susan! To be honest, this is my first piece of "black" glass, so I know nothing about it. Now I have a new addiction. lol
  9. tikiray tikiray, 4 years ago
    Great! Now I'm on the hunt for more Tiffin. LOL Are all collectors as addicted as I am?
  10. susan, 4 years ago
    Errrrr!! YES!! you should see my spare bedroom with things i have picked up just to research them???? but only things i like and find interesting, once i have done the research and found out all i can i cant bare to get rid of it! sad isnt it?
  11. vintagemad vintagemad, 4 years ago
    YES!!!!! I have had a lot of great high's in my life but the best high I have ever found was that of collecting. And this is the addiction I wont get help for.
  12. tikiray tikiray, 4 years ago
    LOL I'm glad I'm not alone in this addiction!
  13. tikiray tikiray, 4 years ago
    Cool, thanks for the link! The light idea is a good one. I would love to show off the amethyst color too.
  14. susan, 4 years ago
    Super link, i have book marked it, maybe we should form a collectors help group? What would we call it?
  15. tikiray tikiray, 4 years ago
    We could call it "the blind leading the blind". lol
  16. vintagemad vintagemad, 4 years ago
    "Blond leading the Blond" what about us dark haired folk? CCA "Crazed Collectors Anonymous" is my suggestion. lol!
  17. vintagemad vintagemad, 4 years ago
    Touche' your right CW is all we need.
  18. tikiray tikiray, 4 years ago
    LOL too funny!
  19. tikiray tikiray, 4 years ago

    LOL!! having a great giggle here!! how about initials? maybe C.O.T.T collectors of Total Tat,? (but some good things) it would work in England
  21. tikiray tikiray, 4 years ago
    I'm cracking up! lol
  22. susan, 4 years ago
    ???? I must be the ultimate collector!! in my last comment I collected an extra S in my name?? how did that happen?
  23. tikiray tikiray, 4 years ago
    LOL My husband just had back surgery.... he's not going anywhere! Heck, he can't even make himself a sandwich.
  24. vintagemad vintagemad, 4 years ago
    My husband cant make his own sandwich and he is in fine condition. Well he has not had any surgery. Hope your man recovers smoothly, and does not run you ragged.
  25. vintagemad vintagemad, 4 years ago
    You ever try JimmyJohns subs? Makes Subway taste like school lunch.
  26. tikiray tikiray, 4 years ago
    LOL vintage! Too funny! My husband is the one that does all the cooking and he's been out of commission for almost 2 weeks now.... we're starving! heehee.

    Hey AR, subway is icky! SubStation in NC is the best EVER, they cut your meat right in front of you when you make your order. Boy, do I ever miss that place. All we have in La is Subway. :(
  27. susan, 4 years ago
    I make my own bread ( in a maker) and it makes the best sandwiches..!!
    Ham, Cheese and thin Red onion... yummmy

    LOVE Jimmy Johns! I get the one of the Slims. Were getting a new one called McAlister’s Deli, anyone ever been there? LOL
  30. tikiray tikiray, 4 years ago
    McAlisters is pretty good. I've been there a few times. I like their tea and soup with the bread bowl.
