We glass lovers are in good company! There are lots of us. Some of our compatriots post their favorite mystery pieces on our Facebook page at www.DepressionGlassFun.com and ask for help. Sometimes we luck out and one of us recognizes the piece, but that only happens half the time. Then I need to ask for help from our wider reader base. Help!! Today we have several mystery pieces that need names. Amy's comport is light and delicate and the sides are very short; it is almost flat. I'll show two pictures, the first one is the close up of the cutting. And this is the comport itself - do you think it might be the cheese holder for a cheese and cracker set? Susan's mystery glass is pink but I don't think it is very old, maybe 1970s? This is one of those "I ought to know this!" pieces. It would help if I could remember where I saw this! Irene's lovely cut goblets were purchased by her mom in 1941. They are beautiful. I think the shape of the goblet, with the little rounded ridge at the base of the bowl, will be more distinctive than the cutting. She must treasure these. They are so pretty, and even more important, they are from her mother. Alexis posted this fun pair, a large pink bowl and a pink torte plate that has a cutting. They are different patterns but she uses them together. Alexis has these pink goblets too. They remind me of some Standard Glass cuttings, but I am terrible at identifying cut glass patterns. Maybe you have an idea for her. Robin posted this crystal footed tumbler with a stylized flower and leaf spray cutting. Any ideas for her? Until I started writing this post I didn't realize how many mystery pieces had accumulated. There are several more that will star in an upcoming blog post, all mystery pieces looking for their names. If you have an idea of the name, please click the picture and it will take you right to the Facebook post. Or you can leave a comment here. Thank you for your help!
