  1. There has been a lot of incorrect things written about Bryce, Higbee & Company, J. B. Higbee, and their products. Stay tuned for my book on Bryce, Higbee & Company that Schiffer will be publishing. I ...
  2. Actually, this is US Glass Company's Dunmoyle pattern introduced in the early to mid-1920s. Bartlett Collins did copy this pattern (or possibly got USGCo.'s moulds---but doubtful and no evidence of th...
  3. Rest assured FG, the company intended this to be a honey dish. It appears in a ca. 1912 Co-Operative Flint Glass Co. catalog as "Honey and Cover." The original name the company gave the pattern is For...
  4. Ruby stained items of Bellaire are later-made reissues by Imperial; this was not part of the original production of the pattern.
  5. Laurie, it is nice to have a complete table set as you do: cream, covered sugar, spoon holder, and covered butter. As long as the shelf is wide enough and you can see them to enjoy, they should be fin...
  6. Those flowers are engraved rather than etched.
  7. Welcome, Bob.
  8. Not sure why you think the P&G photo is the exterior of the Good Luck bowl, Don. It is a separate bowl, and the pattern is on the interior.
  9. Welcome, FF. Northwood's Good Luck comes in a huge array of colors and varieties. Some have stippling within the pattern; back is usually ribbed or a basketweave pattern, but some are found with plain...
  10. Check that mark again, because this is hammered aluminum. Sterling would not be riveted like that. This is a bon bon dish. Glass insert is Jeannette Glass Company's "Thumbprint" pattern. These types o...
  11. Pattern is called Shell or Seashell by collectors, maker unknown. Circa late 1870s-1880s. That is an engraving rather than an etching.
  12. Remember, the Roundup name was coined by early authors (in this case, Hartung, I believe). In the early 1900s when this was made, things exotic were quite popular. This was some designer's fanciful i...
  13. Appears to be a manufacturing flaw in the glass batch, possibly something to do with the colorant. I have an amber Madrid plate that has a very similar defect, but it is circular.
  14. Made by US Glass Company, 1920s+, pattern is known to collectors as "Aunt Polly"; also comes in non-iridescent green and blue.
  15. That is Northwood's Good Luck. Fenton made nothing like this. Fenton's version of Good Luck uses their Heart and Vine pattern surrounding a horseshoe. Not all Northwood is marked!
  16. That's part of the fun, Behr!
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. 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.
  20. 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...
  21. L.G. Wright had this pattern reproduced. They called it "Sweetheart," but it was not reproduced in opalescent glass.
  22. At least one original Imperial Glass Company catalog refers to this design as "Persian."
  23. Cashews was actually made by Dugan. It appears in Butler Brothers assortments with other known Dugan patterns.
  24. This particular pattern also appears in a Monongah Glass Co. catalog, so I would assume those pieces would not be marked.
  25. Cheers!
  26. You're welcome. I've been at this for over 25 years, collecting and researching. Photographic memory sure helps!
  27. You're welcome, one of my 'random acts of kindness' for the day :)
  28. you're welcome!
  29. Welcome, Don. Hope you've been well!
  30. Pretty sure that base is Indiana Glass Company's "Rosepoint Band" aka "Clematis" from the teens.
  31. 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...
  32. L to R: Federal's Columbia, L.E. Smith pebble rim I believe this is called Melba; Fostoria's Romance etching.
  33. First plate is Federal's Rosemary next to Sharon aka "Cabbage Rose." Last photo is Hocking's Princess.
  34. Imperial Glass Company, 1930s...if memory is serving me correctly Hazel Weatherman named this "Landberg." Been a long time since I referenced that book.
  35. 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...
  36. 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...
  37. 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 ...
  38. Jefferson made this pattern, not Northwood. It is shown in jobber catalog assortments among other known Jefferson patterns.
  39. 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.
  40. 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, ...
  41. 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.
  42. 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...
  43. The vase is a reproduction of Duncan and Miller's "Homestead" pattern. Not sure who made your vase, might have been Smith.
  44. 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...
  45. Google search showed one that was on eBay at some point, wouldn't pull up.
  46. Think you mean Silver Crest
  47. Wondering if this was something Indiana made for Tiara. It looks like their Chantilly Green.
  48. PS, yes there is a matching diamond shaped creamer to go with this set.
  49. Indiana's Sandwich pattern in milk glass dates ca. 1950s to 1970s
  50. Wright's Sweetheart repros were not done in opalescent colors, so these bowls are from the original production.
