I am wondering if any one can help me with the pattern names and what companies may have made these. Also what the proper color names are. I assume the 2nd one is called Amberina?
Thanks in advance.

    The first one may be vaseline (check it with a black light). The patterns was originally called "Genoese" when first introduced by Dalzell, Gilmore and Leighton. It is also widely known as "Eyewinker". Mosser Glass is currently making/reproducing this pattern, calling it "Eye Winker" and it is made in several colors. This one looks to be a Mosser reproduction.

    The second one is a "Daisy & Button" made by numerous companies and also widely reproduced and made for many years. Hard to say for sure who may have made this one. It does not appear to be amberina to me, as amberina transitions from amber at the bottom to red at the top. This piece appears to have red highlight on overall amber.

    Thank you very much TallCakes. I am fairly sure the first one is not vaseline, I can normally spot that a mile away. As for the second one I again say thank you, I never paid much attention to amberina. I figured orange and red, and I see now the difference.

    The second one I believe is called daisy and button. It is most likely amberina made in the seventies or later. Amberina can have a red effect at highlights all over. The deeper color comes from reheating the glass. The color is made by addition of gold to glass and then heating and reheating.

    That particular shape of D&B toothpick was originally made by Hobbs Brockunier (believe it or not, original catalogs refer to this piece as a "toy tumbler" rather than a toothpick). Your piece was reproduced by LG Wright beginning in the 1960s. Wright actually made no glass. He owned moulds and took them to the various glass companies in business at the time (such as Fenton, Westmoreland, Viking, Imperial, etc etc) to make the glass for him, he then marketed it as his own. Your toothpick looks like amberina to me. Remember, reproduction amberina is much harsher and more orange than the original color, which was a lovely light amber with a deep, almost fuschia-like color at the top.
