I enjoy researching EAPG (Early American Pattern Glass), which was produced during (roughly) the Victorian era. I collect EAPG cake stands.

  2. ditto; Cambridge 527 rose etch https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/cambridge-avocado-gold-encrusted-527-686306023
  3. can't help with an ID but the photo of the bottom does look like a ground and polished pontil... possibly Bohemian?
  4. Hocking made this water bottle for Frigidaire and it originally had a stopper. Uranium salts were used in the glass mix for color. https://chataboutdg.com/gallery/details.php?image_id=17806&mode=sea...
  5. have you checked their website? https://weishar.com/
  6. Check Jefferson Glass n0. 228 (AKA: Diamond & Oval Thumbprint) c1904
  7. looks like a Prince Rotary... more examples here: https://www.worthpoint.com/inventory/search?query=prince+rotary+lighter&categories=
  8. really hard to see the etch in the photos, but from what I can make out the etch is unknown. Etches were often done by third part decoration houses and not all are known. https://chataboutdg.com/ga...
  9. this one says tea stirrer https://www.chairish.com/product/1081008/more-like-this?is_pdp=1

  11. try rubina verde
  12. check Westmoreland Specialty Co. #240 'Paddle Wheel' c1906; the purple 'cast' is from sun exposure and is called 'sun purpled'
  13. to quote Merriam-Webster Definition of Irish mail : a 3- or 4-wheeled toy vehicle activated by a hand lever
  14. you did a nice job restoring the wood and it appears that you have the original wheels, which is a plus as well...
  15. Irish mail cart / hand car examples and ads: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/antique-irish-mail-cart-push-cart-2000103131 https://onlinebicyclemuseum.co.uk/1959-garton-speedster/
  16. the catalog calls these 'miniatures' rather than child sets, and are listed with other miniature patterns reproductions...
  17. they're also in the 2011 catalog. you can check WP for sold listings https://www.worthpoint.com/inventory/search?query=mosser+inverted+strawberry+punch&categories=
  18. ruling pen good descriptive article: http://www.comic-tools.com/2009/03/this-week-what-is-this-thing-and-what.html
  19. Indiana Glass made their 'Concord' candy box in 1970s-80s. This color was produced in 1978 and the pattern was in the 1989 catalog in clear pastel colors.
  20. Mosser Glass reproduced these Inverted Strawberry punch sets c2012 in various colors including jadeite

  22. I did see a number of the upright design listed as perfume, but also found one of those with labels as a mini liquor bottle https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/3-glass-monkeys-mini-bottle-30s-se...
  23. here's one with a cap for comparison https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vintage-figural-three-monkeys-perfume-520449547
  24. maybe check Old House Lights https://www.oldhouselights.com/
  25. yep, it's hard to accept sometimes when patterns go unidentified. I have several in that category as well...
  26. you're most welcome... that one was also noted as 7" diameter
  27. just a guess; but possibly a soap dish sans the strainer. here's one (different décor) with the strainer : https://www.replacements.com/china-noritake-175-2-piece-soap-dish-bowl-and-strainer/p/6752...
  28. referred to as a Camping Chair, a Bog Chair, an X-Chair, a Stargazer Chair, a Viking Chair, an African Chair https://www.core77.com/posts/35614/The-Worlds-Oldest-Simplest-Chair-Design
  29. the balls on the pull chains look same as my Dale Tiffany lamp; 'Dale' is scripted on the balls... nice lamp : ) https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/170464-roycroft-arts-and-craft-style-hammer...
  30. use depends on size; those averaging around 10"-11" diameter are most often listed as fruit or banana bowls; however Imperial Glass has also cataloged these as celery trays. So for an "original" use a...
  31. "R" has this as Royal Ruby; discontinued c1947 https://www.replacements.com/china-noritake-royal-ruby/c/69052
  32. closest I see are by Bohemia Crystal; seems the etch was used on various shapes: https://www.replacements.com/crystal-bohemia-crystal-victoria-stched-water-goblet/p/82770851 https://www.replacem...
  33. can't really find much on this, only that one resource names the pattern by the AKA of SCHEHERAZADE c1905
  34. Maryland Glass Co. #55 stem with Diana and Cupid etch. https://chataboutdg.com/gallery/details.php?image_id=16529&mode=search etch also known as Diana and Nymph https://chataboutdg.com/gallery/de...
  35. to me, this looks like fairly modern wheel cut lead crystal from Germany or Poland. Found one similar on WP noted as ABP (I'm not see that it is ABP) https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vtg-abp-...
  36. Anchor Hocking called the pattern 'Vintage' and started production in 1960s; fairly plentiful in both milk glass and crystal.
  37. goofus glass was/is cold painted, which makes it easily scratched and susceptible to damage when washing. Here's an informative online article about goofus: http://www.theglassmuseum.com/goofus.htm
  38. nice one : )
  39. as cold painted glass it could be considered goofus. check Anchor Hocking's #1,000 line 'Stars & Bars" https://www.replacements.com/crystal-anchor-hocking-stars-and-bars/c/149368
  40. this site list them in various colors and 12 cm x 150 g https://ibsendesign.dk/epages/Ibsen_Design_2340484.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/Ibsen_Design_2340484/Products/%22ID%20396-1-8%22/SubProducts/%...
  41. looks to be the Dominion line by Smith, which was a reproduction of an old colonial line from McKee, but actually is believed to have started life as the Kanawha pattern by Riverside Glass Co.
  42. this is one of McKee's 'tec' patterns from late the EAPG. the c1915 'Plutec' pattern is noted for the panel and cane motifs
  43. remind me of the STARZ series 'Counterpart' where the game of GO was used in the series theme and Howard often played the game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THM0nlB5MbY
  44. check Hiram Walker
  45. ABP isn't my bailiwick,,, it can be difficult to ID without a maker's mark, which can be difficult to spot. There is a facebook group to check with. Here's one online source with a few catalogs: http...
  46. similar to a jewelry chasing hammer
  47. marking may possibly indicate an advertising or souvenir piece. Slipper looks to be EAPG; maybe U.S.G. but hard to say... compare to this souvenir example: http://www.eapgs.org/patterns/full-images.p...
  48. other examples of lobster tongs https://www.worthpoint.com/inventory/search?query=lobster+tongs&categories=
  49. this link suggest "lobster/crab tongs" but as an old post the related links are out dated: https://www.reddit.com/r/whatisthisthing/comments/3ewlbz/pliers_i_got_at_a_garage_sale/
  50. size??? the loops would serve to connect chains for a hanging pendant light; there would also be a central shaft to support the weight of the shade.
