    UPDATE: Central Glass Works #1426 Stemware, circa 1920's; as usual, CW's glass favorite, Sir TallCakes to the rescue with the ID on this one - thanks, again TC!

    ORIGINAL POST: TallCakes!!! Can you help me? Trying to identify these glasses; they ping like fine crystal, stand 7 1/4" tall. Hoping someone can help me -- what are the secret search words on replacements.com? I can't ever seem to get a good search, today I went through almost 24 pages of "image not available", about drove me batty.

      Still driving myself crazy on finding an identity for these! Thanks for the loves - officialfuel, caperkid, mikelv85, and elisabethan!

      they look like Central Glass Works #1426 stems, which were made with different optic bowls and etches. At "R" you might search 'spiral stem' but they also use 'twist', and also often no descriptor (i.e. they are not totally consistent). Didn't see the etch right off, but 3rd party houses often did etches, etc. You might look thru other Central Glass Works listing at "R" for the etch.

      Tallcakes, thank you so much; what type of search phrase would be required to find what you found? I must've put every phrase imaginable and this one from Central Glass Works never showed itself.
    6. TallCakes TallCakes, 5 years ago
      I first found it at ChatAboutDG.com with a 'spiral' search term. Then looked at "R" to see what they had for '1426'; if you look at the descriptor line for each pattern in the "R" link provided you'll see they sometimes used 'twist' and other times nothing.
    7. MyFavoriteTreasures MyFavoriteTreasures, 5 years ago
      Is there a way to date this and is it crystal?
    8. TallCakes TallCakes, 5 years ago
      I would guess 1920s. That's based on seeing one piece with the #412 etch listed at "R" and the J. O. Balda, Central #412 fairy etch patent date is April 26, 1921...
    9. TallCakes TallCakes, 5 years ago
      "crystal" is a tricky term... does one mean lead crystal or ??? In the USA crystal is simply considered clear glass, whereas East of the big pond "crystal' must contain a minimum amount of lead. This is generally noted as "Elegant Glass".
    10. MyFavoriteTreasures MyFavoriteTreasures, 5 years ago
      Tallcakes, you're the best, thank you so very much. So for my personal recordkeeping, I should label this "elegant glass, circa 1920's"; or do I use the term "depression glass" in their somewhere? Kyratango and Efesgirl, thanks for the loves!
    11. TallCakes TallCakes, 5 years ago
      this precedes depression glass... and is hand finished. Depression glass was machine made and not hand finished. Many folks do often mislabel Elegant Glass as Depression Glass.

      Tallcakes, again, thank you for sharing your vast knowledge with me; I am so grateful!

      I have 8 of these, they belonged to my Great Grandmother. I remember as a child my Grandmother using them at Holiiday dinners. They were inherited by my mother and then by me. I have been looking for years to find out the information you have provided. Thank you so much.
