    Hi everyone. Here is a 5 in tall double crimped amberina crackle glass vase. It is very similar to other amberina crackle Kanawha pieces I have, with one exception: The others all have rough pontils, this one does not. Was all Kanawha glass hand blown? Thanks for everyone's ideas.

      Beautiful amberina crackle vase. I only know that all the Kanawha animals were hand blown, if no one comes round to ID your vase you might look on the popular "e" website where you can find most 60s thru 80s Kanawha Glass catalogs on CD-ROM disc for downloading

      I have 2 mini pitchers from Kanawha, both with rough pontils. I'm pretty sure not all had the pontil, however. Consider me lost, lol but what popular "E" website? Ebay?

      Yes, also obtain catalogs of American Glass companies directly from the WV Museum of American Glass Ltd, Box 574, Weston WV 26452

      thank you newfld....I do need to build my research book collection again. Over 30 years ago when I began collecting, I owned several books and over the years they seem to have disappeared lol.
