  5. thank you aura : ) thank you mikelv85 : )

  7. correct on the Anchor Hocking: pattern was named 'Early American' and collectors call it 'Bubble'
  8. many of these old design concepts are dropped simply because it turns out they don't work. This is similar but opposite the Griswold domed broiler which worked by sitting in a pan. This would require ...
  9. I'm guessing a stove top boiler/grill that worked with a cast iron pan or ring...
  10. this is Indiana Glass #606 Loganberry introduced c1923 in crystal and reissued in various colors including carnival glass c1970s.
  11. you're welcome Rose. It is a very special console set.
  12. couple listings have these as mini oil lamps from Hong Kong: https://www.etsy.com/listing/243631316/opalescent-style-yellow-and-white-swirl
  13. maybe Ice Blue...
  14. this is Imperial Glass #780 Laced Edge but not sure what they may have name this blue color
  15. Fenton 848 c1932-36
  16. graphic example of how one works; the desiccant used defines allowable moisture content: http://www.ecs.umass.edu/cee/reckhow/courses/572/572bk11/Image117.gif
  17. https://www.google.com/search?q=laboratory+glassware&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwionv-Xq6bPAhUG1x4KHUohDQMQ_AUICSgC&biw=1067&bih=522#tbm=isch&q=laboratory+glassware+desiccator
  18. good guess on the laboratory glassware; it's part of a desiccator: http://4.imimg.com/data4/KA/GD/MY-2273291/laboratory-desiccators-500x500.jpg
  19. you're correct on this one; it is EAPG. Richards and Hartley Glass Co. 'Lady Hamilton' c1875. The pattern was continued as 'Peerless' by U.S. Glass after R&H joined that combine. This looks to be a sp...
  20. you're welcome. love the bowl!
  21. one previously posted: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/132550-bedside-carafe-modeled-after-a-motorcycl
  22. Imperial Glass 'Windmill'; the logo shows in the last pic of the bottom. I have a small pitcher posted of this pattern: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/149205-imperial-glass-514-wildmill-car...
  23. Avon didn't have all of their promotional glass marked. There was also a George Washington version of the goblet, and Mt. Vernon creamer and relish.
  24. the Martha Washington pieces were made for Avon by Fostoria c1975-77. I think these goblets came with candle inserts.
  25. glass barometer; hang and partially fill with colored water to monitor atmospheric pressure variations as weather changes.
  26. the butter dome is McKee Bros. 'Puritan' c1910 each piece is EAPG rather than depression glass
  27. "R" has a torte plate in this honeycomb motif but no date: http://www.replacements.com/webquote/tfchon.htm
  28. might find something digging here: http://www.tricyclefetish.com/junior_toy_co.php
  29. the bottom is U.S. Glass #15065 Delaware c1899 and the top/lid/cover is not a match. A clearly focused side profile of the cover might help with and ID.
  30. thank you Celiene : ) thank you GeodeJem : ) thank you aura : )
  31. also think Mosser may have also made the gold and amethyst stain at one time
  32. the 'Cherry and Cable' pattern was first made by Northwood & Co. c1908 in this gold and amethyst stain. Mosser is currently making reproduction pieces with a gold and ruby stain named 'Cherry Thumbpri...
  33. Westmoreland
  34. Lufkin #3851 folding ruler
  35. architectural triangular scale for reading various scaled drawings.
  36. L. E. Smith Glass 'Southern Belle' boudoir lamp
  37. slag glass toothpick holders by Imperial Glass: Three-In-One, Octagon, Diamond
  38. ok, that's consistent with old glass; but is there any wear consistent with age... still thinking this is likely Tiffin 'Royal' but not 100% certain.
  39. so all pieces had same response to the light?
  40. the green/yellow shows in the thick edges and patterns cuts best when turned in the light; It's really hard to photograph without a SLR where you can control shutter speed and manually focus.
  41. EAPG era glass was made using manganese for clarity, which was discontinued for a while at the time of WWI, and other additives were used. This is why EAPG will have a green/yellow glow when viewed wi...
  42. here's an online Indiana Glass catalog page: http://indianaglass.carnivalheaven.com/id151.htm
  43. I can't find anything on possible original punch sets in the Clover pattern to compare. There's also the Indiana 'Duchess' pattern. Do you have a black light to compare the reaction of the cups to tha...
  44. sometime just throwing out ideas and opinions... So what do you think the set here and the separate cup are Tiffin???
  45. could be but I can't tell from the angle of the photos. I'm wondering if this is a reproduction of the Clover pattern, as "R" also list ''Royal" as pattern #58. Did you compare the cups to those attri...
  46. similar to Duncan & Miller, but this is likely Tiffin also: http://www.replacements.com/webquote/tifroyal.htm
  47. this and your cups are likely Tiffin 'Royal'. So many patterns have similarirties it's often to ID from photos. "R" has the flared bowl listed as 15-3/4" http://www.replacements.com/webquote/tifroyal...
  48. looks like Duncan & Miller Glass #58 'Clover' c1905
  49. you're welcome. don't know of age tho'
  50. looks similar to Smith's 'Prestige' but not sure
