  1. That's part of the fun, Behr!
  2. Behr--some companies used numbering systems, whereas others used names. Bryce, Higbee & J. B. Higbee used names rather than numbers. Some used both a name and a number for the same pattern. USGCo. is...
  3. They are incorrect on a lot of things, unfortunately. The OMN is No. 1906 Peerless, the AKA is "Frost Crystal." Heacock first printed some original information on the pattern in his ruby stained b...
  4. quite welcome. I don't know how to post photos in a comment/reply or else I'd see if I can post some of that catalog for you.
  5. This isn't the celery vase. Looks like the sugar missing its lid. The celery vase in this pattern is just about 7" tall and has a scalloped edge and is pinched inward or flared by being hand tooled. ...
  6. It's Tarentum Glass Company's No. 1906 Peerless pattern. I've seen it misprinted as No. 1900 before. Don, what reference did you use? Just curious how far the error has spread. I am looking at an ad i...
  7. Not Chippendale. It's closer to Indiana Glass Company's "Quadruped" but the handles are a bit different. U.S. Glass made a very similar pattern known as "Evangeline."
  8. L.G. Wright had this pattern reproduced. They called it "Sweetheart," but it was not reproduced in opalescent glass.
  9. At least one original Imperial Glass Company catalog refers to this design as "Persian."
  10. Cashews was actually made by Dugan. It appears in Butler Brothers assortments with other known Dugan patterns.
  11. This particular pattern also appears in a Monongah Glass Co. catalog, so I would assume those pieces would not be marked.
  12. Cheers!
  13. You're welcome. I've been at this for over 25 years, collecting and researching. Photographic memory sure helps!
  14. You're welcome, one of my 'random acts of kindness' for the day :)
  15. you're welcome!
  16. Welcome, Don. Hope you've been well!
  17. Pretty sure that base is Indiana Glass Company's "Rosepoint Band" aka "Clematis" from the teens.
  18. Bryce's Wreath was introduced in the mid-1880s. There is no indication it was continued when Bryce joined US Glass in 1891. A few random pieces appear in early USGCo. catalogs, but this was probably o...
  19. L to R: Federal's Columbia, L.E. Smith pebble rim I believe this is called Melba; Fostoria's Romance etching.
  20. First plate is Federal's Rosemary next to Sharon aka "Cabbage Rose." Last photo is Hocking's Princess.
  21. Imperial Glass Company, 1930s...if memory is serving me correctly Hazel Weatherman named this "Landberg." Been a long time since I referenced that book.
  22. Saw you ask for help in another post. First photo l to right, Royal Lace by Hazel Atlas; Princess by Hocking. Second photo, small s&p in foreground by Hazel Atlas. These also come in clear and cobal...
  23. Not sure what the reference to "Flint Glass Co. in 1891" is. The pattern was only made by Richards & Hartley. It does not appear in any of the composite catalogs put out by USGCo. when they began oper...
  24. Don, Though we still are not certain which company made this pattern, you can comfortably place the date of production in the mid-1880s. The pattern is found in amber, blue, canary, apple green, and ...
  25. Jefferson made this pattern, not Northwood. It is shown in jobber catalog assortments among other known Jefferson patterns.
  26. Pattern is "Frances" by Central Glass. It came in a host of shapes and colors, so you can add to this if you like. It's Deco design attracts a lot of admirers.
  27. Hi TC, Neither Depression or cut...pressed glass considered EAPG (Early American Pattern Glass). It is J.B. Higbee's Alfa pattern, introduced for the 1908 market. After the company closed in 1918, ...
  28. This cream pitcher was originally made by Westmoreland in the early 1900s. Was in and out of production for many years. Originals should have just a number moulded on the bottom. Later ones marked ...
  29. Northwood's Louis XV are known in an all over brown stain, and I've also seen pink and blue stain. This blue coloring is original.
  30. Hi A&C38, The sugar in this pattern has a smooth rim. In the Victorian era, sugar bowls were much larger than now. That had to do with using unrefined sugar, which was less sweet. Some are taller...
  31. The vase is a reproduction of Duncan and Miller's "Homestead" pattern. Not sure who made your vase, might have been Smith.
  32. Pattern is Petal, was originally made by Federal Glass Co. When they went out of business in the early 80s (I believe), Indiana Glass Co. acquired many of their moulds. So this could be either Feder...
  33. Google search showed one that was on eBay at some point, wouldn't pull up.
  34. Think you mean Silver Crest
  35. Wondering if this was something Indiana made for Tiara. It looks like their Chantilly Green.
  36. PS, yes there is a matching diamond shaped creamer to go with this set.
  37. Indiana's Sandwich pattern in milk glass dates ca. 1950s to 1970s
  38. Wright's Sweetheart repros were not done in opalescent colors, so these bowls are from the original production.
  39. Fostoria and other companies made these vases in the early 1900s. It is handpainted--over a line transfer. Made things go a little faster on the production line, a very common technique in this era.
  40. It was also made in the Kent/Mantua area of Ohio. I was very fortunate years back to find a rare bowl in this type of glass in what a glass collecting friend calls "citron" color. Was found at a fle...
  41. Don, Fostoria's American was introduced in 1915.
  42. Let me know if you need any help. I may have some scans of original catalogs that show this type of caster
  43. Welcome!
  44. Andy, These are European, most likely Czech from the 1950s-1960s era
  45. Indiana introduced this line in the 1920s and it was made through the depression era in clear, pink, and green. The company had a habit of reintroducing their patterns made from original moulds, and ...
  46. Large one with beads on edge is Imperial's Candlewick; oval one on pedestal base is English Hobnail by Westmoreland, but I believe Summit (and/or perhaps other companies) has produced this in more rec...
  47. Pauline, this is pressed glass meant to imitate cut glass. The pattern is Illinois made by US Glass Company, introduced in the late 19th century. It's part of what is called the "States Series," as ...
  48. Yes, most likely depression era and possibly a bit later. I've seen same shape cream and sugars decorated various ways. The design is actually engraved over the ruby stained band rather than "etched...
  49. Loosely could be called a caster set. This is European and a very nice example, also quite nice to find it intact.
  50. Yes, this is indeed cut glass...but would not be classified as ABP (American Brilliant Period) because of the flowers (left in the gray, as we say). The band of cane cutting is an ABP motif, but towa...
