      Oh Eye we all get it a little backwards sometimes. Now I'm going to be stuck on this little thing for days.
    2. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      Yes stuck, I'll be crazy until I find out why Lizzie foutz was given this.

      Aren't these old advertising glasses great!? Anyone out there have one "Crozier, Iowa". My sister in law's family home used to be a general store. They gave some of these red glasses away and we're looking around to see more items may have survived. She has a few - so we are happy for that.
    4. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      Will let you know if I see one.

      This EAPG glass pattern was made by Duncan & Miller and is known as Button Arches.
    6. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      How do you do that?????
    7. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      Thanks Charcoal
    8. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      You have got go be kidding!
    9. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      Again, how do you do that. I googled and did not see her.
    10. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      Right !!!
    11. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      Read that the modern woodmen opened a TB hospital during outbreak in early 1900's. Wonder if it is same one he went to. Said the sanatorium treated 12,000 people no charge and it was in Colorado I think.
    12. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      He might. I'll follow up to see. Thanks guys.
    13. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      I sent him a message explaining what's up. Will let you know how it turns out. Let him know it belongs to him if its hus Lizzie, which I have no doubt it is.
    14. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      Indeed it is. My sister and I were talking about the same thing. If he is going through all the trouble of tracing his family it would be an important piece for him. I would just throw it in a box.
    15. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      Was at auction box lot. Bought a box of stuff for a few dollars that had a wall pocket in it. Rest of stuff is in car to go to Salvation Army tomorrow so it was just a pice they had thrown together with 7 or 8 other pieces. It is all good, the right thing to do!
    16. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      Thanks Vetraio
    17. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago

      Thanks Budek
    23. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      Sent him pictures if glass. He is very happy. Will let you know what happens.
    24. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      Going in mail to him Monday. His response-

      Wow - thanks so much. Really. For taking the time to research and care to reach out. Really neat to have this piece to remember her by. Makes me wonder what else is out there....
    25. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago

    26. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago

    27. nldionne nldionne, 8 years ago
      I did the right thing sending it to him. That's the main thing!

    32. Jewels Jewels, 7 years ago
      Awesome!
    33. nldionne nldionne, 7 years ago
      Hard to believe it has been two years since this was posted. Of course it would be a much more interesting story if everyone's comments were still on the post. Looks like I'm talking to myself :)
    34. nldionne nldionne, 7 years ago
      I know!!! Used to take be two or three days to figure out who these new guys were.
    35. nldionne nldionne, 7 years ago
      Glad to see you're back to Eye, but Russ was kinda cute:)
    36. nldionne nldionne, 7 years ago
      Nice talking to you too!
    37. nldionne nldionne, 7 years ago
      Me too. This turned out to be a special piece to be in a box lot. Just wanted the wall pocket. I'm glad I didn't throw it in the Salvation Army box with all of the other stuff. Kind of cool to contribute to their family history. Wish Tony knew!
    38. nldionne nldionne, 7 years ago
      Is he a sneak too? Hope so :)
    39. nldionne nldionne, 7 years ago
      It's a great story for us. That's good enough for me.
