  1. Thanks again! :-)
  2. A guy was setting up, and I asked how much did he want. He said it wasn't his that he was just setting up for some lady. He said she would be there soon, so i walked around and came back...and no lady...
  3. I paid $10 for it...and the lady had to give me a canvas bag to carry it!
  4. This has a odd green hue to it. It's clear, but has a greenish tint to it. There are no markings.
  5. Is it like a ball? Completely round?
  6. I have seen an Aqua one here at the flea market, only in frosted glass...whatever you call that, not clear
  7. Solved my own mystery! Mikasa Germany glass

  34. Ok...I am getting confused by what is Vaseline and Uranium. Would I be correct in thinking it's Vaseline if the color looks like Vaseline the product? I have seen some that looks like green Vaseline. ...
