    This was given to me after my mother passed away. My mother bought it in 1970's and thought it was Heisey but never found proof. She called it a ribbon bowl as you can weave your choice of ribbon through the openings to add texture. I know Heisey makes a tangerine, but this item is not marked. It may be Fenton, Westmoreland, Viking or otherwise. Does anyone know what this piece is, when it was made, by whom, and does it have any value?

      looks to be United States Glass #8076
      here's a link with a stretch glass example in blue:

      I appreciate the link and see all the samples that look like my piece, specifically the item listed U.S. Glass 8076 bowl, flat rim in Pearl Blue (light blue slag). My dilemma is the list of U. S. Glass colors provided does not describe the color of my bowl as the orange color: "Coral - an opaque orange to yellow-orange slag glass, apparently heat sensitive; often called salmon by stretch glass collectors" is opaque slag glass and not the bright transparent orange shown in this bowl. I will keep searching for more "open work" glass companies to see if they use the bright orange in their range of colors. Is it true that most redish orange glass was and is a tough color to manufacture in glass.

      that site usually limits most of the info to stretch glass finishes; so many other colors by USG/Tiffin are missing. It's true that ruby red is difficult to attain since the glass must be reheated to develop the color; uneven reheating can result in orange/yellow hues. USG/Tiffin is most likely the maker of your piece so you might research on the color.

      Fabulous news. Many thanks for letting me know that the amberina redish orange glass color is U.S. Glass / Tiffin color.
