  1. looks like possibly Fostoria Heirloom
  2. they are fairly common; just search on eBay and other online auction sites for: Indiana Glass Pebble Leaf Plate
  3. one website that specializes in this sort of glass has this as 1950s-60s: http://www.chataboutdg.com/gallery/img4463.search.htm
  4. this is the Indiana Glass #6 Pebble Leaf pattern that goes back to around 1929 but was made for many years (up thru at least 1980) in various glass colors and finishes.
  5. can't maker out the iridescence in the photo but the piece looks to be Jeannette's Windsor pattern in their red/orange glass
  6. Anchor Hocking made lots of green uranium glass like this in various depression era patterns; not so much yellow Vaseline glass.
  7. looks like Anchor Hocking's Block Optic to me. The color is green tho'. Vaseline is, as you state, yellow and original called canary. An oily sheen or feel to glass isn't related to the color or use o...
  8. you're welcome : ) yes, the two are easy to discern; where your example has hex buttons, the Crown design has diamonds.
  9. my main online resource in a membership EAPG site called EAPGpaterns.com. It is setup somewhat on the same lines as McCain's Field Guide which has an established set of motifs to identify patterns. I ...
  10. Fostoria Glass made this goblet with cameos of George or Martha Washington; it appears that you have the Martha version.
  11. very fetching : ) how many fashions were included in the Fenton Legendary Fashions collection?
  12. pics a bit fuzzy to me but not seeing hobstars; but an ornate star in the center base and some buttons/hobs inside the squished diamond-like shape. The pattern is 'Ladder With Diamond' by Tarentum Gla...
  13. May be that Weishar was the first to make this one in Vaseline.
  14. L G Wright often acquired molds from other companies and didn't make their own glass. They contracted their glass making to various companies that used Wright's molds. Several companies made similar M...
  15. Fostoria #2360 Century open sugar with maybe Lacy Leaf print (hard to make out the details).
  16. very nice glass : ) I think I have a cake stand somewhere around here in this Bryce, Higbee 'Sprig' pattern.
  17. possibly sold with candy; but also known as Jeannette Glass powder box with several different animal characters, and yeas fairly common.
  18. i.e. lamb shank holder; but one get many more relevant results when using "manche a gigot". : )
  19. typically this shape and type of strainer is called a chinois, and often included a stand and wooden pestle to press and assist in releasing liquids.
  20. you're very welcome; very nice bowl : )
  21. the pics seem very dark to me and its hard to see the detail but the first one looks like maybe "Harvest" pattern (or possibly the "Garland" pattern as they are very similar) by Indiana Glass, c.1971....
  22. chances are if it is marked it would be post 1970, as I think that is about the time Fenton started marking their glass; check the logo history link at the bottom of the home page under resources.
  23. did you happen to check the catalogs at FentonFan.com. This shape was made in various sizes as shown on page 5 of the 1961 catalog.
  24. not GD&S #320 Bevelled Button; that pattern has hexagon buttons. This pattern is a block with thumbprint type motif. I found several somewhat similar patterns but no exact match. Best guess is possibl...
  25. beautiful set; I have a small Tokyo cake stand : )
  26. 1885 Adams & Company Wildflower in Canary Yellow (Vaseline Glass) http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/60676-1885-adams-and-company-wildflower-in-canar
  27. AKA: calf weaning ring interesting contraption : )
  28. you're correct the glass color plays a part in the color designation of carnival glass. This piece looks amethyst to me. Here is an online guide to colors: http://www.ddoty.com/colors.html
  29. manche a gigot
  30. Bamboo Root Wooden Ducks: https://www.google.com/search?q=Bamboo+Root+Wooden+Ducks&num=50&rls=com.microsoft:en-US:IE-ContextMenu&rlz=1I7GGNI_enUS511&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=IrfOU4bkLYyLyAS36oHwC...
  31. for some reason the $ get deleted when submitting the comment. Add the $ after the last / and before the _57 to get the image to link to work. meanwhile I'll see if I can get the link to work otherwise.
  32. another try with the whole family image link: http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTE5NVgxNjAw/z/PDQAAOxyBvZTR9Pl/$_57.JPG

  35. Kanawha Grape Vase http://chataboutdg.com/gallery/img2920.search.htm
  36. uranium is continues to be used in glass making today. From your photos this appears to be green and therefore not called Vaseline glass, which is yellow.
  37. the pattern was initially Imperial Glass #489 American Beauty Rose, c.1909. AKAs include: Rose; Lustre Rose; Open Rose. Pattern was made in many variations over the years with multiple reissues.
  38. not consider a reproduction but a reissue : )
  39. the "L" placed before the superimposed "IG" was used on glass after IG was purchased by Lenox, and the mark was used June 1977 thru June 1981.
  40. you're welcome Bob; I'll try to take a look at that vase to see if it is something I might recognize. : )
  41. the are 1960s-70s and found in many of the department stores of the day. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/58989-1960s-gwth-hand-painted-table-lamp
  42. does look like possibly the Gonder #237, which is the larger size of 18-1/2"; but in the form of a planter. Could it be that the "3" you see is part of the #237. The color looks like it may be Red Fla...
  43. I think Fenton called the pattern motif Burmese Diamond Optic. They were made to sell direct and thru QVC. You might look thru some of the catalogs at FentonFan.com: http://www.fentonfan.com/
  44. nice lamp : ) pics of back and bottom, as well as knowing the material and size might help someone with and ID.
  45. you're both very welcome; very happy to help your little one in finding the replacement : )
  46. does looks like it could be Fenton's Rustic (Northwood would most likely be marked with an encircled N on the bottom). The color is based on the color of the glass. Here are some examples for comparis...
  47. depending on where you are located there may be a local firm to do repairs. I know a company close to me near Nashville that does repairs like this, and works on paintings, glass, ceramics, porcelains...
  48. yes, many of the shades are 10"-12" but there are also a good number that are 15"-16" as well. Tho' I didn't notice any shade listed that were 20".
  49. possibly a gravity hook shade from a pendant fixture. Here's a good site for researching old light fixtures and shades: http://www.oldhouselights.com/homepage.htm
  50. This is one of McKee's 'tec' patterns called Quintec and first made in 1910. The patterns was reproduced by Kemple and Smith as recently as 1990s, and possibly others. You're correct, this stand never...
