  2. Hi noob, I seen your post and ran across this today as I was looking for a double gourd vase I have that is also blue and white. I know they are not the same design exactly but might help you in your ...
  3. Thanks for the help and feedback TallCakes :)
  4. OK, I just had my mother look at the set closer. There are Northwood marks on ALL pieces, the decanter and the shot glasses, they all have the "N" in a circle with line under them.
  5. Thanks Tallcakes, I just wanted to make sure that it was actually Grape and Cable by Northwood. I see that all the info I find for G&C Northwood shows under "Grape & Cable with Thumbprint" almost alwa...

  10. ok, fhrjr2, i posted more pics of the same chair. It use to bea caned seat i believe. They then replaced it with a saddle seat. I'm assuming for strength after the cane gave out.

  14. The screw looking piece is actually a doweled wooden screw the is pinned at an angle, they are not metal as I had originally thought when I first started looking into them :)
  15. Did you ever hear anything back about the necklace yet? I think its much older than anything vintage.
  16. Under #3355 Fairacre - original Heisey name Dates: 1925-1937 Here's the problem > Colors: Moongleam stem and foot, crystal bowl; flamingo stem and foot, crystal bowl. So there doesn't look like th...

  19. I think there is a tiny little "S" under the "O" in Co...is there ?
  20. Here's a link that shows the locations of the Alfred Fenton potteries, looks like one in Staffordshire. http://www.thepotteries.org/allpotters/394a.htm
  21. I'm guessing here ... maybe it Alfred Fenton Co. I know there was a A.F. & S which was Alfred Fenton and Sons A. F. & S.~ A. Fenton & Sons, Hanley c.1887-1901
  22. The earliest known enameled objects were made in Cyprus in around the 13th century BC during the Mycenæan period. Six gold rings discovered in a Mycenæan tomb at Kouklia were decorated with various vi...

  24. @ DrFluffy, Arkansas is beautiful, NWA is the prettiest. Look up a little town called Eureka Springs, AR You would LOVE it ! Little Switzerland.
  25. @ kamdetail, I know this is not the pattern on your glass but I ran across it in my Fostoria book today. It is similar, called Carnival Design: carving No. 7 http://www.fostoria-glass.com/1936-catalog...
  26. You could be right about the eastern influence no doubt. Indian, Iranian, Asian...I have tons of Jewelry books, will take a look for you...

  28. This is a page about Etruscan Chains > http://www.dracoproductions.net/assignment.htm
  29. It looks Etruscan, especially the chain... You said it is more silver correct?
  30. Not sure if it's quite the same although it looks close > http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-barqs-/181650997380 1920 or 1930s maybe
  31. Now to find the Diamond patterned one that is in the front of the picture....it never ends !!! ??
  32. @Antiquerose, Thx for the pics, it did head me in the right direction for sure ! I found it ! They are Mt. Washington Burmese Glass JIP vases > http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/16305984_mt-washingt...
  33. It does look very similar to the "Fancy Ball" stem line #3003
  34. This is a great information site for glass terminology http://www.retroartglass.com/page/14wn1/Glass_info/Glass_Definitions.html
  35. I am looking a bit closer and I believe I see 2 mold marks on the first pic, is there 3 seems by any chance? Such as a blown 3 mold piece. NOTE: Fostoria actually makes a stem that is similar also.
  36. If it is a Heisey piece, It very well could be marked on the "top part of the stem" where it is applied to the bowl, and on or actually "in between" the bowl and stem. Not all Heisey was marked but mo...
  37. Here's some info on types. * Blown Glass : This type of glassware is shaped by air pressure from the mouth or an air compressor. When a mold is used to make blown-glass items, the pressure of the air...

  39. Ok, I posted a pic from my Heisey glassware book, take a look. Very similar stem. It's a blown stem also.
  40. Ok, I'm going to lean more towards Heisey ..stilling looking tho
  41. Just a guess but the stem reminds me of Bryce pieces, substantial. The melon shape stem looks Baccarat too...I'd have to dig into the books to be sure...
  42. @ Antiquerose, Ahhh, yes that was a great find and quick too, although I should have been a bit more descriptive. I was referring to the JIP in the front of pic with the pink, yellow, blue colors and ...
  43. @DrFluffy, I believe the beads looks to be an Antique "Rock Crystal" necklace. Not just a glass bead. Look at this link > http://www.pinterest.com/pin/141863456986309589/ Rock Crystal is very colle...
  44. @ DrFluffy, I guess I need to look at my profile again. We moved to Arkansas to be closer to family and get away from CA taxes LOL. I do miss the weather though, we lived in San Clemente & OSide for a...
