    Thought I would post some Canadian CORN FLOWER pattern pieces our family had. Very Popular here in Canada. Corn Flower is 2 words, not one word for this maker. From what I read -- eight companies were all major players in the American elegant glass field and had the Corn Flower Design put on their Glasswares. They were: Fostoria, Heisey, Imperial, Lancaster, New Martinsville, Paden City, Tiffin Glass, and West Virginia Specialty Glass company.

    For Some Great reading, history, info and pictures below in the link. Thanks, Hope you enjoy!!

      Hi antiquerose! Corn Flower in colored glass is especially stunning. Early Corn Flower decorated items had 12 petals but the later items had only eight petals....I was told. I do have the; ELEGANT GLASS WITH CORN FLOWER book by Walter T. Lemiski and I use it all the time because of the excellent Elegant Glass information it provides. RER(BOB)

      @ LOUMANAL - Thanks for that info. I never knew that about the number of petals......so I guess these would be early pieces then. Thanks ever so Much!!

      I will have to check out that book too....
