    I've had these items for many years and have tried unsuccessfully to find any information. The glass piece with handles was given to me by my aunt who was an antique dealer. She told me to hold on to it as it would be worth something someday. The other pieces came from my grandmother's collections. I would appreciate any help you can give me.

    Thanks!

      The crystal piece is an Inverted Thistle spooner. The pattern was originally made by Cambridge but it has since been heavily reproduced over the years. The stemmed comport (compote) is Fenton's Persian Medallion in blue - very pretty.

      The spooner is pressed glass and not cut.

      Mark, I was wondering why you wrote that. I don't see any inference that it was cut. Have I missed something?

      Thank you both for the information. I have inherited so many pieces and it seems next to impossible to identify each and every one of them.

      The pattern of the first piece was originally produced about 1910 by the J.B. Higbee Glass Company and called Delta. Some collectors call it "Paneled Thistle." After Higbee closed in 1918 some of their moulds for Delta went to the New Martinsville Glass Company. The pattern was also made at Jefferson's plant in Toronto, Canada, circa 1920. It was extensively reproduced by L.G. Wright starting in the 1950s. Original pieces made by Higbee are marked with their unique trademark of a bee with spread wings with the letters H I G over the bee. Some L.G. Wright pieces have a fake bee mark that looks more like a hornet with no H I G over it. Pieces by New Martinsville and Jefferson are not marked.

      Cambridge's "Inverted Thistle" pattern is completely different. Google "Inverted Thistle" and "Paneled Thistle" for comparison.

      By the size and shape of the piece, it appears to be the celery vase rather than the spooner. To know for certain, I would need to know its height.
