  5. There does seem to be a strong resemblance. I'm not that familiar with Wolf Robe; it's just that I recognized the similarity of your photo to my print. Maybe someone with more insight will take a look.
  6. no, the individual here is not 'Wolf Robe', but the stance of the photo is one often repeated, especially with Native Americans. Here's a link to the 'Wolf Robe' photo: https://farm3.staticflickr.com...
  7. nedd to have a edit button; that should be "Wolf Robe"
  8. finally dawned on me; this photo stance is a close resemblance to the Wild Robe photo by Frank Rinehart. That profile stance is very often copied in photos and various other arts. I have a stippled pr...
  9. check Cambridge #2760 Daisy, c1910; aka: Archfoot Daisy, Nearcut Daisy
  10. kinda looks like Fenton's stretch glass but photos are a bit fuzzy. So likely a Fenton bowl that had the metal stand added by a third party. ShetlarGlass.com is a good place to look for stretch glass.
  11. here's an online reference: http://www.griswoldcookware.com/undersatnding_griswold.htm
  12. the bladed tool is a grapefruit knife: http://www.google.com/patents/US2637899
  13. carpet stretcher
  14. thanks itsasecret : ) thanks inky : ) thanks Katherine : )
  15. thanks Manikin : ) thanks valentine : ) thanks itsasecret : ) thanks Mike : ) thanks racer : ) thanks Sean : ) thanks paris : )
  16. thanks PatSea : ) thanks agh... : ) thanks Belltown : ) thanks Jewels : ) thanks WP : ) thanks kivatinitz : )
  17. that's one only place I can confirm from this one... These types of markings were some of the first details to go from subsequent uses of molds; so I wouldn't be too concerned about the lack of a mold...
  18. the patent date is hard to see and I couldn't get a photo to work. Look inside under the lid opposite the bird; there is a flat area from the wrist to end of little finger where the date is molded.
  19. thanks WP : ) It may have been offered with different gems cuts; not really sure without some type of original catalog or patent intent. But the old 'glue' that was used does fail and the gem get rep...
  20. I also found this Heisey #1025, which is very similar as well. Does yours have the Heisey mark on the bottom? http://chataboutdg.com/gallery/img4150.htm
  21. best I can tell is they look like a match to Heisey #1021 Christine, which was only made in crystal. These look to have both a gold décor and floral cut, which mostly likely was done by a third party ...
  22. looks like a Mexican made serape/blanket/rug
  23. the Ivorina Verde was Heisey's name for their custard glass, which prolly is striking under black light : )
  24. yes, it is a butter dish. In one book the omn is also noted as Ivorina Verde
  25. agh is correct; this is Heisey Glass #1280, c1898; aka: Staghorn, Winged Scroll
  26. oops, maybe that should be Sprite
  27. just a guess, but maybe a 7up truck missing decals
  28. looks to be a pegged votive candle holder; made to insert into a candle stick. https://www.etsy.com/listing/194038392/vintage-blue-glass-votive-candle-holders?ref=sr_gallery_11&ga_ref=error_page_redi...
  29. minnow basket ?????
  30. most likely this is a Cambridge swan; check the bottom closely for a maker's mark
  31. yes they are Fenton #1092 Basket (aka: Basketweave) and first made around 1911; from photo looks like green opalescent
  32. maybe a special edition Crown Royal bottle ?????
  33. Imperial made their 710 pattern beginning in 1920s, and different colors up to 1978. Collectors call the pattern either 'Beaded Block' or 'Frosted Block' depending on if the 'blocks' were stippled or ...
  34. should anyone still be interested. It took a while to hear back but this is what I got from WMF in Germany via the USA office: this item is called punch server, dated 1933
  35. generally dough cutters have a straight blade as dough tends to roll this curved blade wouldn't work so well and be more work. These curved blades are generally vegetable and meat cutters, and the cur...
  36. the shape is generally called a compote and depending on size may have other names: comport, footed bowl, footed jelly, etc. If it has the superimposed 'IG' mark it was made between 1951-1972. Imperia...
  37. that is consistent with EAPG glass containing manganese. Older flint (lead) glass would be purple under black light.
  38. given the size these may be by Columbia Glass in their 'Henrietta' (aka: 'Big Block') pattern c.1889
  39. several EAPG companies made this pattern mostly known as 'Late Block' around the 1880s. Have you check the glass under black light?
  40. if they are large size (hard to tell size from photos) they may b muffineers/sugar shakers
  41. Mosser has this in their current catalog called 'Plain & Simple'
  42. I looked the the 1916 catalog and didn't see this handled piece but the toothpick holder is a match.
  43. hey Bob, check Baccarat Crystal 'Bambous Tors'
  44. Hi levitsa... : ) no harm done. for values I suggest checking online auction and sales sites; also Replacements.com is sometime useful tho' their prices are often much higher that most auction sites. ...
  45. thanks Belltown : )
  46. even after going thru the cut-paste and flipping images to make them all agree I still can't keep them straight. So Jewels, I do now see that you both do agree. Even the EAPG cake stand book has the I...
  47. thanks Sean : )
  48. thanks Mike : )
  49. I think even got mixed up in that 3rd comment; The left and top are all the same. Also could mention that the other maker also used the same pedestal with another top. So If I'm interpreting correctly...
  50. I'm thinkin' maybe hippo tusk
