My grandmother collected these like mad. I believe I have upwards of 300+ in my attic. Not sure of age or value

    Possibly Oklahoma glass or Murano?? Should get $5- $10 each. I am not expert on these mind you. Could be more depending on each swan. Murano items can be worth a good amount. It's hard to generalize a certain type of glass from just one picture, Good luck!

    Thanks, Mrj303. I'm sure it's probably Oklahoma glass. I need to get in the attic and look for maker marks or something. There's so many it's kinda overwhelming

    I bet. Garage sale time! :) I'm about to have a garage sale in a few weekends, can't wait! Good luck with your glass.

    I'm gonna go put them in the antique store. She said she'd give me a booth if I did her ebay sales. Good luck on your garage sale

    Be careful-- if you have 300 pieces there are probably some gems in the group.

    Make sure that you do a little research before pricing the swans. I agree that this one is less than $20, but there are some venetian swans that can climb into the several hundreds of dollars.

    Some things to look for: labels, signatures, and gold inclusions in the glass. You can "research" labels and signatures on ebay closed auctions to get an idea on selling prices to prevent a big dollar mistake.

    Good luck,

    Scott

    Thanks, Scott. I will definitely check these out before I sell them. Don't want to make a mistake!

    Agreed with Scott. You should never group a type of glass or style into one price category. Ex- one glass hen could be worth $5 but another could be worth $350+. I have actually purchased many pieces of glass that people do not spend the time looking into and have turned them around to make huge profit. Let us know if you find any 'gems'. Hopefully you find quite a few!
