    The slightly battered, sole survivor of a set of three, as seen here at Replacements dot com:

    The set got heavy use in my parents' household as ashtrays. Although the only smoker in the family was my father, many of my parents' friends also smoked. It was the times. };-)

    This humble little item is posted as a replacement for the Rosenthal Studio Linie Humidor post, which I took down so I could get the item evaluated by Barnebys.

    I didn't want simply to delete the post without creating a 'placeholder' so that I could thank all the CW users who have loved, liked and/or commented on it.

    Lata, vetraio50, bobby725, lisa, Caperkid, ho2cultcha, Johnsmith, Brunswick, fortapache, aura, and especially billretirecoll, thank you all!

      nutsabotasas6, thanks.

      I thought you might be right, because I had so many other things to research at the time I looked into this particular piece that I might have been hasty in my judgment.

      I took another look, and found this:


      The best way to tell the difference between Candlewick and Boopie (Berwick) is to take a good look at the balls of glass. The Candlewick pattern has balls that do not run together or even touch each other. They are full circle balls that have a little space in between them. They tend to look more fragile that way. The Boopie or Berwick design has the balls touching each other without any space in between. They almost look welded together.


      Vintage glass is a huge category, and I'm certainly no expert like CW user TallCakes.

      I remember when I had some sherbet glasses I needed to ID, and I found some that looked exactly like them on Pinterest. Well, the person who'd posted them called them by a particular pattern name.

      I must have gone through twenty pages of patterns on Replacements dot com, to no avail. Ultimately, I found out that the Pinterest user was wrong, and it was another manufacturer and pattern altogether. >8-0

      Well, an update on the Rosenthal Studio Linie humidor. Barnebys said that while Sarpaneva and the Scheids were possible designers, it also could have been Uta Feyl. I have seen some of her work with a similar glaze, so it does seem possible.

      Still no absolute confirmation, though. Unlike the other designers, Feyl seems still to be alive, so perhaps I should try to contact her.

      nutsabotas6, Saw this Boopie ashtray on CW:

      So, there does appear to be a bit of space between the beads on Boopie. :-)
