  4. I think it may be Fostoria 'Firelight' https://www.replacements.com/webquote/fosfir.htm
  5. closeup of 1502 https://www.chataboutdg.com/gallery/details.php?image_id=20341&mode=search
  6. also found at Shetlar; seems the difference in #3 and #1502 is that the #1502 included diamond optics (both shown here): www.shetlarglass.com/stretchglass/sgcompanies/fenton/Fenton12.htm
  7. found this noted as by Fenton: https://www.chataboutdg.com/gallery/details.php?image_id=9000&mode=search https://www.replacements.com/p/fenton-1502-jade-green-open-sugar/fen1502jg/78179491
  8. many collectors call the pattern Imperial Grape. One catalog names this The Niagara Pattern, and shows the cup with saucer as open stock items. It is pattern number 473. A punch set was also made in t...
  9. possibly Imperlux lead crystal from Germany
  10. make that #2640
  11. part of the Fostoria #2680 Garden Center c949-63 https://www.chataboutdg.com/gallery/details.php?image_id=19729&mode=search https://www.replacements.com/webquote/fosgac.htm
  12. Fostoria #5098 stem with #278 "Versailles" etch c1928-40 https://www.replacements.com/webquote/fosversp.htm
  13. Smith made the punch set with bowl, cups and underplates for many years. IIRC my mom got a set with S&H green stamps back in the 60s or 70s.
  14. it's unfortunate that this is known as 'Daisy and Button' as it has neither motif included. This was originally made by McKee Bros c1910 and named 'Rotec' and it has cane and pointed oval with hobstar...
  15. looks like a tulip blossom; those ribs you describe are separating the petals of the blossom; maybe florist wares...
  16. 20thcenturyglass has a square blue bowl on their pearline page, and note as possibly Henry Greener
  17. yes, Fenton #848 c1930s; love the cobalt!
  18. Indiana Glass 'Cracked Ice' c1931
  19. I'm guessing bellflower rather than tulip. better photos showing side profile and dimensions might help;maybe a lidded sugar bowl...
  20. Jeannette 'Crackle'
  21. yes, the candlestick is missing; bobeches are also used with ceiling hung candelabras, or anyplace one might burn candles. Many bobeches have holes or other design features for hanging prisms, which I...
  22. might mention that the pattern is very similar to Fenton's Lincoln Inn c1928-40s
  23. found the ID on replacements and they didn't have a date; I did see one listing claiming the pattern to be c1930s but no ideas on that assertion...
  24. Simplicity pattern by Val St Lambert
  25. @keramikos no worries; it's all good : )
  26. thank you all for your comments and love taps : )
  27. size and description might help but looks to be a bobeche
  28. the selling prices vary wildly on eBay and often sell for less than the asking price on BIN with offers.
  29. looks like some text in front of 'DIAMOND'; what might that be?
  30. George Duncan Sons & Co. #555 'Shell and Tassel' c1881 sugar bowl missing lid
  31. very cute! the do have close resemblance to Fenton's Alley Cat : )
  32. thanks for the comments and love taps : ) I've edited the write-up as I've done a bit more research and learned that the original was made by U.S. Glass/Tiffin back in c1920s, and known as 'Sassy Cat...
  33. when the sides of bowls are 'bent up' like this they are most often called banana bowls or fruit bowls. This one can be found attributed to H H Union, Czech Republic and Tuscana by Crystal Clear Indus...
  34. very fortunate to find one with the ashtrays included. here's on old post under black light of the same one: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/66320-vintage-uranium-slag-glass-smoke-stand
  35. here's the c1930 patent on this one from Vidrio Products: https://www.chataboutdg.com/gallery/details.php?image_id=16442&mode=search
  36. just checked "R" and the show many of the various forms and colors: https://www.replacements.com/search/?query=westmoreland+1776&i=48
  37. from what I understand the keystone mark was also used on the reissued pieces in the 1960s. The early pieces had ground and polished bases, whereas the reissued did not.
  38. or #1776 'Keystone Colonial' which was made in various colors into the 1960s
  39. "R" has the Farber stem with various colored inserts as well: https://www.replacements.com/p/farber-brothers-farber-crystal-chrome-amethyst-liquor-cocktail/fa_fahc/108039041 https://www.replacements...
  40. very difficult to tell much with this photo; check to see if this link is close: https://www.chataboutdg.com/gallery/details.php?image_id=8749&mode=search
  41. part of a porcelain tobacco smoking pipe; possibly German: http://www.go-star.com/antiquing/porcelain-pipes.htm
  42. the added photos are much clearer. Cambridge and Paden City both made very similar design; so it's possibly by either or another maker of the times.
  43. generically speaking these beverage sets are often called samovars. Several Elegant Glass companies made similar sets in the 1920s and into the depression era. Better photos might provide some directi...
  44. not sure where HOMCO may have contracted for this glass
  45. nice one; these still do pretty well on the retail market. Word of caution: refrigerators vibrate and many years ago I lost a cake plate using the top of fridge storage method when it 'walked' off the...
  46. check HOMCO cathedral diamond; the color may be plum

  48. George Duncan's Sons & Co. #44 Mardi Gras c1898; and continued by Duncan & Miller
  49. probably have better luck searching for info using 'swung' vase rather than stretch, which refers to a type of iridescent finish. the spiral motif one is Dugan Glass #1016 Sprialex c1906-1910 severa...
