    Hi all,

    Here is a piece I just picked yesterday, although I have seen it at the thrift for a few days past. First time I picked it up ... Wow ... This is something ! ... Oh, oh ... Chipped ... Put it back .... Next day ... Still there ... Hold it again, wow ... This is something ... Must be a mark somewhere ... Couldn't find one, and those chips ... Yesterday ... My friend, who is major knowledgable about antiques and schools me ... She picks it up ... Hmmm ... Wow ... Is that a mark ? She asks ... Let me look, I said ... It says .... Lol ... It looks like tuthill?? Sounded funny that name ...really? She says ... That would be right up there with St. Clair ... She also noticed numbers scribed in the glass also ... Pattern number or date ? I couldn't believe it ... I told her even I knew from the quality that it was special ... She said when we started hanging around together to pick things up, feel them, get to know quality ... She was right ... After holding thousands of pieces, quality dances on the shelf ... But the chips !!! Why do sign collectors get to have rust and holes and image loss ??? I always ask her, lol ...

    Get it she said, it will be your first piece of American Brilliant Cut Glass ...

    But it is chipped ... Lol

    Peace, love and the history behind this dish sings to my heart,

    Eye4beauty,

      I had heard somewhere that the Amish furniture makers at times deliberately put flaws in there pieces because "Only God is perfect" --

      So what I am really saying is that this piece may have been made by the Amish....

      St Clair? Amish? Good heavens, seems your friend doesn't know as much as she and you think. First, the chips were not put there by the Amish. These folks never, ever worked in cut glass. St. Clair?, never! Now, if you mean Sinclair, you are in the ballpark. Tuthill was one of the great companies that produced American Brilliant Cut Glass. There cuttings with florals or fruit are special. However, with the information you provided it is hard to tell if this is Tuthill. The company never put dates or pattern numbers on their work. That is what the catalogs were for. Next, you can't even say if the signature is really Tuthill. Hold it to a light and move the piece around, you will be able (in most cases) to tell what the signature reads. The chips pretty much ruins the piece as far as value goes. It is a pretty pattern and is fun to look at and hold. That is the story on this piece.
