    This is a very vibrant green glass dish of some sort. Is it a butter dish? Or perhaps for small pastry? It's not very large: base is 7.5" in diameter, and the cover is 5" in diameter - the entire piece stands about 4.25" high.

    Is it gold leaf gilding or just gold paint on the flourishes? The glass has a few bubbles and ripples - how was it made? So many questions and no answers! But I liked the colour of the glass a lot and paid only $2 at a yard sale, so whatever it is I feel I can't lose!

      agh is correct; this is Heisey Glass #1280, c1898; aka: Staghorn, Winged Scroll

      STAND BACK JACK! Ya gotta be kiddin' me!

      I feel like the people on the Antique Roadshow who've just been told their $2 flea market find is worth 60 times more than they paid for it!

      And mine appears to be in flawless condition, with the exception of the gold around the edge of the plate wearing off - but no chips like those in the links.

      Thanks so much for the information you all supplied. Maybe I'm getting an intuitive knack for this stuff and should become an antiques dealer!

      Is this yard sale in Florida by any chance? - I am green with envy :0)

      Better used for beluga caviar or white truffles instead of butter :))

      It was a yard sale on one of the Gulf Islands in the Salish Sea on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada. I'm going to post the flutterbys I bought at the same sale on the odd chance they're some rare Lepidopteras.

      the Ivorina Verde was Heisey's name for their custard glass, which prolly is striking under black light : )
