I’m familiar with a few New Martinsville etches but it’s easier to recognize their glass by the shapes. Janice, Teardrop and their square-ish shapes are all distinctive and you’ll quickly get familiar with them.
We foun a few bowls in our Franciscan Apple dinnerware. Franciscan originally made this china in California, then moved it to England and now China. There is a lot of variation in the exact size and piece shapes, as with any pattern made for over 75 years. My Mom had Apple – we used it as our good dishes on Sunday and holidays until I got married – and Dave and I got her dishes. She had many pieces, some damaged, and we’ve filled in the missing items.
Besides the dishes Christmas candles for the front porch somehow snuck into Loren’s car. Dave was not impressed. I hated to disillusion him as to my good taste (or lack thereof) but we now have porch candles to light this winter.
There were more vendors at the fair than we recalled from prior years and lots more attendees. The fair runs the last Sunday of the month April-September so we’ll have to go back next year!
