No, it isn't Mickey Mouse. Those wing handles sure look like big ears, don't they. This is the Radiance glassware from the depression era made by New Martinsville Glass and with the luscious Cornflower cutting. New Martinsville made several patterns like this one during the depression era that had lots of style and pizazz. Some popular New Martinsville designs are Radiance, shown here, and Janice. Radiance has those neat looking vertical little raindrops on the sides and those retro solid handles. Depending on who you listen to and what book you read, Radiance is elegant glass or it's depression glass. It is good quality with some hand finished details like ground base rims which qualifies it for elegant glass status. New Martinsville made Radiance in colors plus crystal. The Cornflower cutting is a design from Hughes in Canada. It's distinctive with cross-hatching in the flower centers and feathery flower petal edges. It's a great combination with this snazzy Radiance shape. The photo below shows this cutting up close so you can enjoy.
