    Is the yellow hard to find? What is the hardest color to find would you say?
  2. fenton-hobnail fenton-hobnail, 3 years ago
    yellow is up there on the hardest to find colors. the hardest to find color would be the purple opalescent...its is called by several names (wisteria, orchid, violet) i have a pic of this color...

    this color is very hard to find. the plum color from the 1980's is also a scarce color... thanks

    How can you tell a vintage 7" basket from a reproduction? I noticed on my cranberry vintage I can actually place product, (water) in the base of the basked, but the reproductions appear to have a solid base. Does that make sense? I have been fooled several times and really would like to know how many reproductions are out there, and where are these "Antique" dealers getting these? So frustrating.

    im not sure what you mean by reproductions....there arent any reproductions out there...there are later issues of items, but they are not reproductions.

    Maybe she means knock offs or fakes?? Like Anchor Hocking etc.... I don't know...
