  1. thanks Robin : )
  2. you're very welcome...
  3. your very welcome, I have a bunch of cake stands in this pattern; tho' I've not seen one in this color of glass: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/135923-indiana-glass-constellation-cake-stand
  4. check close-up photos in link for label info on Anchor Hocking - Fire King 'Leaf & Blossom': http://www.amazon.com/Anchor-Hocking-Jadite-Blossom-Original/dp/B008CES788/ref=as_li_tf_il?tag=gzaluminium...
  5. Indiana Glass introduced the pattern #300 'Constellation' c1935. This color was called 'Sunset' and made c1978, and was sold thru their home sales subsidiary of Tiara.

  9. it's EAPG (Early American Pattern Glass); U. S. Glass #15076 'Georgia' c1902. The glass has turned the light shade of purple from exposure to the suns' UV rays.
  10. http://chataboutdg.com/gallery/img1045.search.htm
  11. doesn't look like Renninger blue to me but I'm not good with carnival glass colors. Here are a couple of fairly reliable links with examples: http://www.ddoty.com/colrblues.html http://www.carnivalg...
  12. Fostoria #2419 'Mayfair' c1931; not sure what they may have called the etch pattern as several difference décors were used on the pattern.
  13. could be plumb bob or top; what does top (opposite pointy end) look like for attaching string for bob?
  14. you're very welcome : ) nice find with the prongs intact as they are prone to getting broken off.
  15. Northwood did make a 'cracker' jar in their 'Grape & Cable' pattern c1900. But this is a humidor and the underside of the lid should show 3 prongs for holding a sponge in place; not really rare but po...
  16. from the photos the color looks to be cobalt blue
  17. not sure of the years these were made, but possibly c1950s-60s. It is Westmoreland's 'American Hobnail' pattern and the same tops were used on several of their shaker designs.
  18. Fostoria made similar 'vase pitchers' from their Heirloom pattern vases. found one looking very similar on eBay listed as possibly Murano amber glass pitcher-vase...
  19. thank you Goodoody : )
  20. you're very welcome Goodoody : ) Thank you Katherine : )
  21. might look into the 'Dominion' pattern by L. E. Smith Glass
  22. many folks mention this as being introduced by Fenton c1940s. The form is in a 1950 Fenton catalog as #389 Miniature Vase; #389 was the number Fenton used for all of their Hobnail forms in the 1950 ca...
  23. you're very welcome Kerry : ) thank you Indrozdenko : )
  24. morning Kerry. I do have a few catalogs and favorite reference books. I also have a membership at EAPGpatterns.com, and a few other favorite sites regarded as knowledgeable glass resources. EAPG has m...
  25. this is an EAPG pattern and the form is usually called an apothecary jar. U. S. Glass - Century - c1900
  26. very nice covered compote : ) Ripley & C0. - Dakota - c1885 - AKA: Thumbprint Band here's a link to my cake stand: http://www.tallcakes.com/CakeStands/RipleyCo/DakotaCrystal.aspx
  27. might check Vereco/Duralex
  28. Indiana Glass made this 'Sandwich' pattern from 1970-1999 and sold it thru Tiara, their home party distribution subsidiary. This 'peach' color was produced c1989-98. This form is a low sherbet.
  29. thank you Indrozdendo : )
  30. Beatty-Brady Glass Co. Juno AKA: Double Pinwheel, Star Whorl c1998
  31. very nice little stem; unfortunately it seems that mostly those with optics are the ones that are attributed.
  32. thank you glasslove : )
  33. thank you Eye : ) thanks again Kerry : )
  34. thank you Robin : ) that would be interesting IF the base was a decanter. thank you inky : )
  35. http://www.replacements.com/webquote/UNKUNK7198.htm http://images.replacements.com/images/images2/crystal/F/P0000025776S0005T2.jpg
  36. hard to tell but are there any optics going on there? Did you happen to check Replacements for a hollow stem search?
  37. I'll be around for maybe 30 minutes or so tonight
  38. might check Hofbauer
  39. thank you officialfuel : ) thank you fortapache : ) thank you mikelv85 : ) thank you racer4four : )
  40. thoughts on the separate pieces is easier shipment with less breakage, ability to have multiple use of the pedestal for compotes, lamps, etc., and maybe less storage space needed.
  41. thank you Kerry : ) thanks you kyratango : ) thank you Vetraio : )
  42. Well Kerry, not sure about the rarity but this is the first I've seen in a 'separating' cake stand. And the price was right so I went for it. I did show it to an online friend well acquainted with EAP...
  43. search lily lamp shades and you'll find many similar in various colors and finishes used on different lamps. for the rust you might try Bar Keepers Friend
  44. also check L. E. Smith
  45. ditto on 'Rebecca At The Well'. These were made by Fostoria for the Henry Ford Museum and marked HFM in the fold of the skirt. This is a reproduction of an 1877 pattern by Bakewell, Pears & Co.
  46. the stem looks to be Fostoria #879; the photo looks like possibly there is iridescence, which would be 'Mother of Pearl' if present. The sugar and creamer look to be Glastonbury #1500. I guessing the ...
  47. no idea, but these have come up before in different colors: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/149843-fenton-pink-overlay-vase?in=609-unsolved-mysteries
  48. several companies made similar 3-part covered candy boxes; this was the only one I saw that has what looked to be a similar rayed motif on the bottom.
  49. hard to say without any other identifying insignia patches but looks to be current enlisted dress uniform
