  11. @Mmadura If you remove the felt (damp cloth held on edges) it will remove fairly easy and you can still replace it back with a light glue. It will not hurt the value any, people have to replace them a...
  12. @jonjin You are welcome to join and check out the "Vintage Lamp Collectors" group on FB. Just type that in a FB search.

  14. The globe is what would be considered “crackle glass”, the only “slag glass” looks to be the bottom border glass.
  15. I believe this is an Italian spelter, Slag Glass paneled lamp. The number you found on the lamp plate is more than likely a shape/model number or could be the date which would be read in reverse, 356 ...

  23. Sorry I just noticed there are 2 photos. I was referring to the striped beads and not the blue/ black beads. The darker set I’m not sure of, although thy both could be Venetian trade beads... Here’s a...
  24. These look to be Venetian drawn glass beads, very old, maybe 19th century? jmho, I’m not an expert.

  26. Yes if hadn't been for Tallcakes & Paul71, I would still be looking for this pattern ????
  27. I found an auction with a Weston Lily Pad or Water Lily footed glass. Does the foot on your vase have mold seams or is it a single applied piece?

  35. Thanks Tallcakes, I just wanted to make sure that it was actually Grape and Cable by Northwood. I see that all the info I find for G&C Northwood shows under "Grape & Cable with Thumbprint" almost alwa...
  36. I still can't seem to find any info on this set except what tallcakes and I found on the old ad. Still would like one of the glass experts opinion please.... :(

  38. Thanks TallCakes, I did see that one. I was leaning more towards more info though.. :)

  40. ok, fhrjr2, i posted more pics of the same chair. It use to bea caned seat i believe. They then replaced it with a saddle seat. I'm assuming for strength after the cane gave out.

  44. The screw looking piece is actually a doweled wooden screw the is pinned at an angle, they are not metal as I had originally thought when I first started looking into them :)

  46. I think there is a tiny little "S" under the "O" in Co...is there ?
