    I'm not gonna retype my post that decided to not only post, but not allow me to retrieve.

    All of it is from the thrift-store. I had seen it all and passed it all up before at an estate sale a few weeks ago.

    If anyone can identify any of these pieces, that would be lovely. I think the pitcher set at left is 'daisies and buttons'?

    One bird dish has a IHI(?) and the other has a WC(?).

      the pitcher, creamer and covered sugar are Kemple's reproduction 'Lace and Dewdrop' c1940s. I have a write up on this pattern with a cobalt on milk glass cake stand in my posts.

      The piece with the blue edge was made by Fenton Glass. It is called "aqua crest." The two birds facing each other was made by Westmoreland Glass. The other bird appears to be a mismatch. The top piece is by Westmoreland, but that is not the base it should have with it.

      the ruby stained toothpick holder is Duncan & Miller's 'Button Arches'
      the slag glass vase is Akro Agate 'Lily' #658

      A nice collection of Milk Glass SpiritBear, and it's nice how TallCakes, and TimeTraveller, shared letting you know what some of them are! :^D Maybe one day they will go up in value again! :^)

      Tall Cakes, thank you for taking the time to identify these pieces. Your knowledge and resources must be great. I've saved a select few for later gifts to my mom, who loves birds and milk-glass. What I gave her today, though, she was very excited to get. Looking at the Akro vases online, I see them being called Depression era. Is that correct? The Button Arches being c. 1897?

      Time Traveler, thank you very much. I see on one site it is circa 1941?
      Nutsabotas6, thank you. I left a whole bunch behind lest I spend even more there. LOL.

      Billretirecoll, everything has ups and downs in the market. Porcelain and furniture are mostly dead right now, but they'll bounce back for a while at some point.

      I really like the pitcher, creamer & covered sugar.
    9. SpiritBear, 3 years ago
      Time Traveller, as did my mom. She desires that we use them when family is around.
