  1. Katherine, I tend to agree with you one the possibly Mikasa attribution; it does look like something they might sell. I've seen other pieces with that similar drape motif but don't find an exact match...
  2. maybe I've caused confusion with the use of the '...' at the end of my comment. That was just my way of ending the comment with the '...' intended to indicate that the story/explanation could possibly...
  3. generally this fixture may be called a 'gravity hook fixture'... In a quick look I didn't see an exact match but you might look around 'Old House Lights' for a match. Most of these lamp were sold thru...
  4. may find that this particular stem has a different number, as Libbey's 8876 is same stem design on slightly larger cocktail glass. Your piece is possibly an early version; the twisting effect was some...
  5. definitely looks like a variation of the same stem. you might try to contact Libbey with pics noting similarity to 8882 to see if they might be able to assist.
  6. I would lean towards Libbey, tho' many years later others do use that detail. Libbey still uses it today. But if you examine Heisey, Bryce and other contemporaries you find smooth finished rim edges.
  7. yes, safe edge was a Libbey invention from 1920s to help protect from edge chips; it's essentially like a bead/rounded edge... Whereas most blown glass has the edge ground smooth and flat.
  8. is that a 'safe edge' or is it just the optics in the photo?
  9. really nice web site!!! enjoying seeing the great pics you have as the catalog b&w images just cannot do justice to this beautiful glass...
  10. it is really striking and looks well made : ) Has the appearance of faux stained glass with crinkled foil backing, but no idea other than that.
  11. agree, very nice : ) there are pressed glass patterns with similar zipper & slash motifs, but this looks to be cut glass to me...
  12. I do find it interesting to note similarities of these cut designs with similar pressed designs: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/146965-federal-glass-bowl--windsor-pattern?in=activity
  13. as noted there were more than a thousand cut glass houses... here are a couple more useful web links: http://www.cutglass.org/ http://www.brilliantglass.com/
  14. from these photos this definitely looks like cut glass... Sometimes these pieces may be marked, and may require examination with a loop to locate. IDing cut glass like ABP is not something I'm familia...
  15. you're very welcome : ) that size was typically listed in catalogs as a comport or compote, but also sometimes as a footed bowl. These days the term 'compote' is most widely used...
  16. thanks to both of you for the kind comments... : ) Katherine, he did see the bowl and wine but has no good idea on maker of either, but will take another look-see...
  17. without measurements, I'm guessing this is an open compote; tho' not cut glass. This is EAPG (Early American Pattern Glass), which is pressed glass from around 1850-1920... Your compote was made by Br...
  18. you're very welcome : ) was also able to find this design piece in the J. Schreiber & Nephews 1915 catalog on page 40, but the number is obscured by a watermark: it's a pdf file if you care to take a ...
  19. I have a 'holy' decanter by Lenox that was gifted to me years ago. It's acid etch with a Lenox mark and also has a couple of sticker labels indicating made in Turkey, and called 'Tuscany Classics'; th...
  20. looks like these donut hole decanters go by various names like 'infinity', 'eternity', etc.; without s label it is likely difficult to actually ascribe to a specific maker as there is some variation t...
  21. compare it to this one with made in Poland label: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Donut-Hole-Clear-Crystal-Decanter-Pitcher-Made-in-Poland-w-Label-/141470424667
  22. I still have my Vietnam era Shelby P38 from my Navy years. Carried it on my key fob for many years; came in very handy many times...
  23. this looks to be the larger P51, which is 2" long; whereas the smaller P38 is 1-1/2" long. The P51 was made for mess kitchen use on larger cans; and considered easier to use with the increased size. ...
  24. Fostoria #2720 'Heirloom' in pink opalescent, c.1950s-70s
  25. happened upon this whilst looking for something else: http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/schalen/10134.html
  26. the combination of gray cut on pressed lead glass is an indication of recent imports. Try a google search for: Pinwheel Cut Glass Butter
  27. looks to be Indiana Glass 'Pineapple & Floral', c1970s
  28. from looks of thing, this may be a P-51.....
  29. Hi!!! : ) and you're very welcome...
  30. nice pickle castor : ) the glass is the Seaweed and Shell pattern by Consolidated Glass.
  31. nice JIP vase : ) appears to be McKee's Sunburst pattern, c1901. Tho' the pattern has been reproduced. So it is EAPG rather than ABP, but still a nice find : )
  32. agree that it is indeed a Fostoria #2287 CHS (fleur-de-lis handle), c1925; no idea on the etch pattern. Tho' etch and cut décor were often done by third party houses and are often unknown. nice server...
  33. the superimposed WG is the Westmoreland Glass mark; this is their #3 Doric Border pattern from 1940s-80s... nice find : )
  34. the pic is a bit fuzzy; but possibly Venetian overshot glass epergne...
  35. that would be 'epergne' ... and a very nice one : )
  36. thanks Katherine : )
  37. to me the form looks more like a decanter/carafe; possibly part of a night set/tumble up...
  38. certainly looks like a L. E. Smith #200 'Mt. Pleasant' bon bon, c1930s ... : )
  39. btw, the 'sandwich pattern' bowls here are KIG; a recent interpretation/reproduction 'Sandwich' / 'Fleur de Lis' pattern...
  40. not much help but did find that "R" has this as unknown pattern with gray cut floral...
  41. thanks again... Mike : ) BigSarge : ) WP : ) CindB : )
  42. not seeing the 'cable' ... : ) This is a Wright reproduction of Dugan's 'Wreathed Cherry'... tho' you may find a similar Mosser reproduction of Northwoods' 'Cherry and Cable' which has a thumbprint ...
  43. attributed to Heisey: http://chataboutdg.com/gallery/img17604.search.htm
  44. might check Baccarat donut hole decanter (missing stopper); the shape here looks like a match. should have a number etched that would match the stopper...
  45. maybe 5-part; don't forget the center section : ) Anchor Hocking's 'Queen Mary'...
  46. http://www.viewmaster.co.uk/htm/b.asp
  47. you'll need to post better photos, well lit and in focus at different angles, and give measurements. tho' likely a generic heavy ashtray of unknown origin...
  48. are we sure it's not a fine porcelain???
  49. if it's recent auction, you could post a link here by copy-paste and we may be able to ID
  50. @vintagegardener: you may have a somewhat similar pattern made by Jeannette Glass called 'Lombardi'. You should add pics in a new post for us to see...
