- Hazel Atlas Florentine #1 or #2, aka Poppy. The pitcher shown is the Florentine #2. These two patterns are identical but on different shapes and come in yellow, green, pale pink and clear. The colors look wonderful together.
- Hocking Cameo also called Dancing Girl or Ballerina. I like this pattern a lot and it is relatively easy to find, comes in lots of pieces and is moderately priced.
- Hocking Block Optic is art deco styling and is also fun to collect with many pieces to find and rather inexpensive.
- Fostoria Trojan etch or June. These are more costly but gorgeous. And fun to collect with plenty of pieces.
