    Love this Wheeling Peachblow Brides Basket. It has a great irridescence along with the Peachblow. Have been looking for a year and still haven't found a basket holder for it, but sure it will come along one day. Heck this has been packed in a box for the longest but got a new display case and brought this one out. Thanks for looking.

      not to be a downer or anything.. but this is absolutely NOT wheeling peachblow.

      this is what wheeling peachblow looks like.

      I am not exactly sure what you'd call this example. It's definitely not any kind of peachblow. the iridescence suggests a carnival type thing. Not my area.. Someone else here might have a better idea of who did this one. you could also try http://www.chataboutdg.com/

      You are not being a downer. Victorian glass a bit more of my specialty. This is New Martinsville, WV. Got the wrong town off the top of my head. This is Peachblow. Peachblow was done in many different variations of color and did have irridescence as can be seen in this piece.

      Sorry not peachblow.

      I do believe new martinsville. ah I looked it up. the line is actually called muranese but collectors call it peachblow.

      by proper definition this isn't peachblow.

      Especially since the company called it Muranese. for it to be called peachblow the company themselves must have called it that. This does look more like the murano style peachblow that has the blotchy effect. this was made from 1902-1907

      Victorian glass is indeed something I've spent a lot of time on. It's later depression style pieces that I do not know much about.

      You are correct, the Collectors refer to this as New Martinsville Peachblow. Which is what the title states. It does have the same technique that makes Peachblow with the heat sensitive glass and reheating to make the shading of the colors. That is most likely why it was referred to as New Martinsville Peachblow. It didn't fit the category of Amberina nor did it fit the category of Burmese glass both using the same heating and reheating technique. Thus, the collectors put it in the category of Peachblow. Peachblow was a name given to the Morgan vase when it was sold for a high dollar amount to a Chinese glass collector. Mt Washington's Peachblow goes from a pink to a blue. The Wheeling piece you showed goes from a Peach to a red. Hobbs Peachblow goes from a yellow to a red. This piece goes from a yellow to a light peach.
