    As you can see, AmberRose and inky, the photograph featuring the little cotton-batting girl skipping rope on snowball is very poorly executed. However, this photo shows her off just a little bit better than the Tiffany/Orrefors entries, so…. Her skirt is pastel pink crepe paper, and her rope is a tinsel pipe cleaner. She has red shoes and a smiling face. Cody Foster / Backporch Friends line.

    Father Winter is looking pensive - perhaps grave. Perhaps that's because I’ve mis-introduced him -- his real name is "Snowball Santa". He carries a snowball head with ruffled collar on staff. Another delightful Nicol Sayre design - fashioned of composition, crepe papers, pompom, glitter, tinsel, and box. Again, very poor photos!

    Thank you! AmberRose and inky, I really appreciate your appreciation!

    Now, the candleholder in the forefront of Photo 1 is an old American pressed glass candle holder. I am guessing that it is perhaps very old, possibly end of nineteenth century. Observe the base - it's just like some of those late nineteenth century cake stands. Possibly TallCakes would recognize it. No one would buy it at the Salvation Army – even though it was only $1.00. It followed me home….

      You have quite the eye for decorating! I do not have that particular talent. I am always impressed when people can put things together in just the right way. I am typing this, eyeballing my shelves, knowing something is off. What that is??? I wish I knew. Maybe you or Sean could come help?

      agreed, the candlestick in the forefront of the first image does look like it could be old glass. The shape is consistent with many of the 'plain' patterns from the EAPG era. Have you checked it with a black light; not necessarily a determining factor in and of itself but most EAPG crystal will have a faint yellow-green glow.

      Thank you very much for your kind appreciation, mustangtony, petey, Justanovice!!! : )

      Thank you very much for your most gracious comments, Bellin and AmberRose!!! : ) AmberRose, praise coming from you is praise indeed! I remember swooning over your Festivo Christmas table. I'd never have thought to add the vintage green Christmas tree candles to the ensemble, but it was startling
      and quite delightful! A Finn with a candlestick must be in need of an evergreen tree, yes? : ) It took magic or the artist's eye to fashion such a table! I LOVE IT!!!

      Thank you very much for your very kind assistance, TallCakes!!! I thought that you might recognize this 'style', which I first encountered on late 19th century pedestal 'cake plates'. I was so excited to read your response this morning that I tried the blacklight pronto. Didn't see any green glow, but it's rather bright, and I will test again tonight, when it's darker. Thank you for your generosity and your careful scholarship, sir!!! Always much appreciated!!! : )

      you're welcome. with crystal you need almost total darkness and turn the glass in the light, as the glowing often only shows on thicker areas or edges. I usually go into the bathroom and turn off all the lights except for the black light.

      Update: No green glow under blacklight for the old EAPG candlestick. Thanks again, TallCakes!!! : )
