    Thank you everybody here on CW for all the information and posts as I LOVE and wanted just a little piece of this fascinating glass.
    Purchased on online as a violet vase for $8.00. I cannot get enough of looking at it. Lights on, off, drapes open closed, it is fantastic. :):):):)
    Best part? My daughter was here when it arrived and she said " that's a pretty purple color". I said come with me to the window. It was a glorious moment, and I owe it all to you here on CW!!
    About the label, well I haven't found much but I DON'T CARE.
    (outside of the fact of the info for collectors).
    If my house was on fire, I'd grab my crazy cat and this. ;)
    Love and appreciation to all in my search. OMG :):)

      $8 !! Geez. If I had a cat I'd kick it. (I don't have a cat. I am never cruel to animals.)
      I just had a big yell instead - I feel better now, but envy still eats away.....

      Oh Lord Karen, you are so friggin funny!!
    7. OneGoodFind OneGoodFind, 3 years ago
      Thank you share. My girl really spoiled me this Christmas and as a mom you want to give them more but I think she caught onto my excitement. I'm thankful and I feel guilty all at the same time. ;) LOL
    8. OneGoodFind OneGoodFind, 3 years ago
      Karen if it makes you feel any better I paid $12.00 for shipping. :)
    9. OneGoodFind OneGoodFind, 3 years ago
      And..You all are good teachers! I pay attention and tried really hard, bought a lot of not neo and even went to a pretty dangerous place looking so I kinda earned it. ?
      Remember the slop bucket? I do and it was the most disgusting grossest things I have ever seen in my life. So relax and thank goodness you don't have to go to those extremes.

      Laughing...... the slop bucket.
      $20 still requires a big yell
    11. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago

      And thanks for the laugh too :-))))

      I find some of the best purple has an almost dull grey blue colour, but then in the right light it comes alive, and that is what is so fascinating, beautiful find ! I love the crystal pineapples that can show this, and you are in love !!
    16. martika martika, 3 years ago
      Very interesting find!!! Like Judy, I never heard about colour changing vases.

      Beautiful vase OGF! I find this type of glass, with its changing colors, fascinating! I had an interesting introduction to Alexandrite glass. Sometime back I purchased a light blue, Murano koala bear at auction. While setting it up to photograph for eBay, I noticed a lavender tint to it. The light bulb came on that it was an Alexandrite/Neodymium piece, and I couldn't have been more thrilled! Although indoors it was a light lavender, it wasn't until I brought it outdoors that the color exploded! Here are a couple of pics...

      Oh wow, I appreciate you all so much. :) Sorry for being such a slacker. If it helps any I just took down my Christmas tree this weekend. ;) I am guilty of sleeping ALOT. Especially when ..well all the time. IDK why. Men,on,pause or I paid too much for this bed. ;; :)
      Karen, I agree with your maker from what I had found. It was one of the names I had written down and even then they are not as expensive and no clear ties to the AA sticker. Your info was helpful and comments sooo entertaining.
      Tassie and Martika, yes it changes colors in different lights. It blows my mind. :) there are many more lovely pieces of this illusive glass here on the site. I'll try to attach them. Someone once had a piece on here that drew my attention and many of the CW folks have helped me try to figure it out as it can appear a bit clear at times.
      Thanks for the woohoo kyra!! I appreciate it.
      Scott and Ivonne, yes it changes so beautifully. Just in the curio it's a different color depending on the time of day. It's absolutely fantastic!!
      Phil, yes the base pic I tried to take does have the dull grey blue. I'll try to edit and post. But what are crystal pineapples?
      Thanks or the loves: Rose, fort, Share, Karen, vetra, Kyra, Adele, Tassie, Mike, Scott, Caper, Ivonne, flea, Martike, Swfin, aura, Sklo, BB2, SEAN, Thomas and Rick. Ya'll are the best.

      Awesomeness Rick. Good to know an expert didn't spot it straight off. Lol. I've visited the antique malls around here and never did I spy a speck of this glass. And I was looking for it intensely as well as all the other wonderful things everyone posts here. Thanks for sharing this lovely. :)

      There are others depending on how you spell it or how the collector spelled it.
