  1. helps to have focused photos... this appears to be an EAPG pattern called 'Banquet' by Bryce, Higbee & Co. c1896 : )
  2. pic too tiny; check the Heritage line at the Smith website, as this bowl is still in production.
  3. too bad the pattern glass sub-category actually become EAPG. Yours is Victorian pressed glass (just not American). Your lovely vase is Columbus, by Radeburg, c1890. http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/v...
  4. thanks Elisabethan : )
  5. many companies made this inverted thumbprint type optic glass beginning during the Victorian era; most of it was not marked. So unless a specific piece is actually found in a catalog it is difficult t...
  6. HI eye : ) this one is currently displayed on the high glass shelf surrounding my dining area; so it is viewed looking up toward the ceiling making a great view for the colors...

  17. Yes WP, the Nimitz is nuclear powered. Since you mentioned the Coronado bridge, Nimitz class carriers are to big to pass beneath. I too remember breaking cadence many times : )
  18. also in black: http://chataboutdg.com/gallery/img1780.search.htm
  19. the shape does look like Heisey's Whaley jug/pitcher, but not sure that it was made with panel optics or in this color.
  20. pretty jug : ) the etch is a needle etch that was fairly common in Elegant Glass of the depression and post depression eras. The loop part of this etch was used by several companies. Heisey had a simi...
  21. that is such bad etiquette; one should never have to actually touch the food with your hands ; ) For this instrument to be acceptable one also needs a corn cob holder to use with it...
  22. thanks CinB : )
  23. good one TA; just providing the patent info to confirm your ID : ) slight difference is the lack of the twist in the patent. Proper eating etiquette was so difficult back then; still can't really figu...
  24. here's the patent; called corn slitter and scraper: http://www.google.com/patents/US983515
  25. thanks Paris : )
  26. thanks Lisa : ) thanks Belltown : ) thanks Hunter : )
  27. thanks valentine : )
  28. I do have some nature photos on the "Photos" tab of my website, tho' I haven't been too good this year at doing any updates there. I should have some cardinal photos somewhere around here but not too ...
  29. thanks eye : ) no, I've not been approached on the glass displays. Only publication I can claim is years ago the local paper published a group of my wildlife/bird photos. The paper has an online secti...
  30. thanks WP : ) the way the hand is held along with the lace effect seems very Victorian lady-like to me...
  31. thanks Mike : ) thanks CindB : )
  32. thanks AR : )
  33. thanks Sean : ) thanks eye : ) yes, a gift. but I still have 2 more : )
  34. thanks racer : )
  35. you're very welcome; these remind me of Frank Lloyd Wright's mission style architecture : )
  36. thanks agh : ) thanks fort : ) thanks PatSea : )
  37. really nice find on the candlesticks: Westmoreland #1015 Mission, c1910
  38. you're very welcome too Jewels ; )) and thanks AR : ))
  39. thanks Jewels : )
  40. a forum chat section could be a nice alternative : ) might relieve some tensions of the less tolerant...
  41. antique office desk device; it's an address embosser/stamp press. Works much like modern document embosser used by notary. Before the days of electronic documents many professions were required to emb...
  42. form certainly agrees with Fenton #847 Fan Vase first made in 1926 but subsequently reissued as well.
  43. not ALL Northwood glass was marked. This appears to be a Northwood original.
  44. here's a forum link with pick of a wire basket and 4 jars: http://balljarcollectorscommunitycenter.yuku.com/topic/1155#.VGamXHLu0qQ
  45. Okay, I'm thinkin' that will be an interesting project. Perhaps you might check with the Ball Jar Collector's at balljars.net and good luck with your endeavors : )
  46. are you wanting more jars for canning use, or interested in finding/collecting this specific jar?
  47. I'm guessing that this would be a HTF jar that had a limited production.
  48. compare the size/measurements of your jar with this link noted as midget jar: http://minnetrista.pastperfect-online.com/34201cgi/mweb.exe?request=record;id=ED167DBB-898E-45B6-8972-407282415400;type=101
  49. the 3 oz. size seem odd to me as well; possibly a special run for spices. Generally canners do use liquid measure, which corresponds with canning jars typically marketed as quart, 1/2 quart and 1/4 qu...
  50. welcome to CW : ) this type of decorated glass is known as 'Mary Gregory' style and fairly varied in execution. Here's one good site for researching glass with a brief on 'Mary Gregory' style glass: ...
