  12. I 'think' this is the 'Columbia' pattern by Columbia Glass c1891
  13. it's helps to show details in clear glass when photographed against a medium to dark background; the darker background will tend to reflect the details much better in photographs than lighter shaded b...

  21. does look very thick. any reaction to black light?
  22. I didn't examine the images closely before; just accepted that it has the appearance of the Heisey block design. Looking closer, these are quite large blocks, whereas Heisey Victorian looks to have mu...
  23. does this one have the Heisey mark? Looks like Heisey made their #1435 'Victorian' pattern from 1932-52. That's one heavy jug and very pretty too!
  24. can also go to wrenchingnews.com and look thru the archive photos; check the number of the interested item and the follow the link below that image to the auction; some of those do have direct links t...
  25. Poorboy, I forget how exactly I got to that site initially; but you can see other examples by following the links in the tool categories. There are hundreds of similar monkey wrenches...

  35. nice gathering of history. the first piece is a toothpick holder in the Colorado pattern by U.S. Glass c1898

  40. I also found one of these listed by an "informed" seller stating that it was from her mother's toothpick holder collection and purchased in 1973 as unmarked Degenhart; that makes more sense than an ir...
  41. not sure how consistent Boyd and Degenhart were with their marks. If it is indeed an older piece it would be considered damaged in this color. Some folks do like the color tho' so there's always a mar...
  42. check the bottom or inside bottom for a Boyd or Degenhart mark. I would think if they were artificially irradiated originals that there would be noticeable wear.
  43. I usually think, "artificially irradiated", when I see any EAPG patterns in this color. This is called 'Peacock and Heron' and originally from the late 1800s. The mug has been reproduced by Degenhart ...
  44. Imperial Glass #745 Laced Edge; some collectors call this 'Sugar Cane'
  45. Imperial Glass #160 Cape Cod c1932-84; I think this may be the 6" baked apple nappy with that flattened rim, tho' "R" calls it a cereal bowl.
  46. Indiana Glass #615 Lorain c1929-32
  47. Anchor Hocking made their 'Old Café' line c1936-40 as you have noted; the pattern was made in crystal, pink, white, royal ruby and forest green. I vase found other Anchor Hocking lines with a similar ...
