    Help! I hope someone recognizes this interesting piece of glass!
    It's about 4" tall and 3 1/8" wide, and has a very detailed lacy stippled design. Note the interesting feet, too! This is part of that same collection that was for sale locally, and one of the few pieces we bought. I'd love to know the who/what/where/and when! Or even just ONE of those! :)

      what color is it in natural light? if it's green (rather than yellow or yellow-green), then it's probably from the depression era, when lots of glass companies added iron oxide to the glass to make it greener

      Valleyboy, I replaced the second photo with one of the piece shot in natural light, sitting on a coffee table with just sunlight coming in the room. It's quite a bright yellow-green even in natural light. I have it sitting next to an 1890s EAPG vaseline piece, so you can see the difference. Quite a shocking color, I'd say!

      i'm not an expert, but that looks quite green---could be depression era, or maybe something in the more recent era (post-1958)

      Thank you, I think you're probably right about it being a more recent piece.

      Hi Eglass, If It's A Modern Piece They Didn't Make Many, As I've Never Seen One & There Not In Any Of My Glass Books ... I've Been Surprised To See Some Old Pieces This Colour ... Did The Rest Of The Set Have These Unusual Feet ? Cheers Mark

      Mark, hi! Mystery is solved as of a couple of days ago. A Vaseline collector contacted me to let me know that he owned several pieces in this pattern, that were produced by a small glass company in Portugal back in the 1960's-70's. He provided photos of his pieces, and both the glass coloration and the interesting feet were there....he did not know the name of the company however.
