I can't locate this pattern in any books. The set includes 4 small tumblers. It came from Ohio and was included with some Heisey Tatting crystalware - not sure if it's also from that maker.

    It's hard to say by one picture but I would say this isn't Heisy. You can tell a Heisy piece by it's ground bottom, or an H in a diamond. Typically when Heisy had painted pieces the paint was fired in.

    You have to love my spelling before coffee. There is another way to test to see if it's Heisey. I'll cut and paste the instuctions. Sometimes you can tell a maker by the way the handle is attached as well.

    Many Heisey pieces have been reissued by other companies. Not all Heisey glass has the embedded symbolic diamond “H”, and most paper stickers have been lost over time. The way to tell if its really Heisey -- it fluoresces yellow under a black light from the traces of uranium in the sand used for their glass. Other glass makers used this kind of sand before world war II, but the newer reissues do not and will not glow yellow.

    I'm trying to place a value on my Heisey Tatting pattern crystalware. I have an incomplete set of water goblets, sherbert, cocktail & wine glasses. Replacements.com lists this pattern but without a price. Do you have any idea what I might sell it for? TY

    Today I learned that this is a Victorian Lemonade Set and they were all hand painted by individuals so no pattern.
