Last week I posted my offer to help people with their glass – when I can – which is not always! Several folks took advantage of the offer and posted some interesting pieces. I’m sharing a few of them here.
First up is this drop dead gorgeous green iridescent center handled server from Lisa. It has a circle of etched roses. I didn’t think I’d be able to identify the etch since it was completely unlike anything I’ve seen before so I asked her to post a photo showing the handle.
The handle is one of those ubiquitous V shapes that can be darn hard to nail down without the piece in your hands. Luckily Lisa didn’t wait for me but went to the Chatabout site and found it there. I went there too and found this etch attributed to Central. It isn’t in my one Central book, but sometimes you have to look a little harder.
Isn’t that gorgeous? I love center handled servers, love etched glass, love green. What a wonderful piece. Lisa said she paid $10 at an estate sale. Wow.
Here’s one I was able to help, Donna with her Fostoria Plymouth etched stemware.
Do any of you dear readers recognize this next bowl? It is a puzzler! Color and finish say “Jeannette” but shape says “Lancaster” or just maybe, “New Martinsville”.
Poor Candice. She posted another mystery bowl too. It is pink with a spiral optic, three feet. I’ve no idea who made this. Candice said it looks more like depression glass in person than it does in this view.
Does anyone have suggestions for Candice? People post photos on my Facebook site frequently and I’m able to identify less than half. Luckily there are lots of good glass sleuths out there to help with identification!
