    Since I am neither a connoisseur of art glass nor glassware in general, four of these pieces remain unattributed. With the acid-etched Emile Gallé grape cluster cameo vase, a three-dollar find from a local charity store, I am besotted. Prior to permitting its sweet bouquet to effloresce--a spoor attracting other cynegetic collectors and sellers--I laced my fingers over its barbellated vines and ran. The piece has a pronounced pontil mark and is appositely signed. My 1970s Bob Biniarz studio art glass glaucous-green vessel, which I, for five dollars, procured from a local rummage sale, has a peacock ocellus-style motif. It appears to have an acid-wash finish, but I am sure one of the ardent art glass collectors here shall better enlighten me. I am a mere plangonologist, do pardon me!

    The lovely Victorian-era opaline vase, which may be a Stevens and Williams piece (likely a Harrach piece, as Scott has kindly suggested), has undulating amber stems and plump applied glass cherries. Should I proceed to misattribute a piece, please, do correct me. From another Goodwill charity store, I purchased the lovely amber basket with the cobalt applied glass handle and petalled rim. I love how each lightsome petal furls, moving away from the delicate bulb of the basket.

    The pink pitcher-style vessel, bedighted with fingerprint and hand-enamelled floral sprig motifs, has an applied glass handle, slight pontil mark, and gilt digits on its base. Finally, upon seeing the pink dragon-style rigaree applied glass on the opalescent melon bud vase with the elongated neck, I was unable to surpass the four-dollar piece. It is, I do believe, relatively new, but my surmise may prove incorrect.

      Love the vase with applied cherries. My favorite form in art glass!

      Used to always see these advertised as Stevens and Williams in the 1990s. Believe that most are Harrach.

      Thank you, Pacem, BHIFOS, and Scottvez!

      Yes, I am to, in a better-lighted area, separately photograph the Gallé piece!
