      blunderbuss2 - did you leave your mind reading hat at home today?
    3. Grammatina, 4 years ago
      Thank you! I will try!

      Isn't there a "guideline' for posting Mystery items?
    5. Celiene Celiene, 4 years ago
      Grammatina - I post a lot of stuff online for sale. Someone once told me - describe your items as if you have no pictures, or as if your audience is blind.

      The more information you can provide helps.

      Celiene, I went to a mind reader but she wouldn't tell me anything, because she already knew I wasn't going to pay her.

      Thanks for the help! First, I found it buried in dirt in an old abandoned log home we just purchased in PA. It is very heavy and the legs are detailed with spiral designs. Several other pieces of glassware were found by it, but I have no idea how to date those to clue me in on this one. Surprisingly, there are no chips or scratches, so maybe the didn't use it a lot? Other clues could be that it appears to have a side seam only to the top until the glass border ring on top. I apologize for my ignorance here, I really don't collect antiques, but my aunt said this was a good place to get an idea on what period it might be from? Either way, I really appreciate your interest and help!

      You're very welcome; I got lucky on that one, LOL - I'm not usually very lucky when trying to ID glass. And welcome to CW, it's a great place!
    14. Celiene Celiene, 4 years ago
      LOL- the first pic you posted - I had no idea it was clear glass! Washing before posting might be nice. I LOVE this pitcher!

      I hope you have a metal detector! If you found this - who KNOWS what you'll find with a detector! Amazing!

      1880! Some had etched face & handle. Some were all clear.

      So many people here buy houses or furniture and then find amazing things left behind! I'd LOVE to buy a house with contents included!
