I happen to have a lot of blue glass, it seems to be what I happen upon a lot. Here is a small grouping, including a Fenton Blue Opalescent Hobnail basket found at Goodwill, a huge Silvercrest compote with blue roses made for Sears, a blue crested tri-lobe vase from the 40s, and a Silver Turquoise bowl. There are also two Northwood pieces, both blue opalescent. One is a 'flipped' Spanish Lace rolled bowl circa 1899, the other is a tree trunk vase that sat under the kitchen sink for years, left there from when my husband's grandma was alive and owned the house. At one time, I thought it was ugly, but kept it safe anyway, not knowing a decade later I would develop an affinity for old glass and find it suddenly gorgeous! It's a miracle it was never chipped being banged around all those years under the sink! There is also a mica basket, blue cased with milk glass and a tree-branch-like handle. Some research I did indicates it is from the 1880s, but that seems unlikely to me. Anyone familiar with mica glass?
