Oh Linda~ I am in love with the hair receiver! The color is stunning! Please be sure to list more photos to this group so this way we can visit your site often. So, please show us your wares! Thanks, Rita @ TesoroFino.com
Oh my Vintage Touch, these photos are gorgeous. Do you have a website? Do you just collect or do you also sell? Let us know. Rita @ TesoroFino.com
Here is a sweet vanity set I found at a yardsale/antique sale a couple of weeks ago. I was going to put it on my website but changed my mind and kept it for me. I couldn't find any information of these pieces. It is cut glass. I absolutely love the green cottage color of it. I keep cotton balls in the powder box and mouth wash in the bottle. ~ Lynn

That looks more like a pressed glass piece, tho it is pretty
Craig
Hi Craig, Loved your reply. It's hard to tell in the photo but these pieces are very textural....kind of pointy. I would love it if you would start a discussion on the difference between pressed glass and cut glass. :)
pressed glass will show mold lines in the pattern tho sometimes hard to see, and not be as sharp of edges & points as cut glass, and usually cut glass is not optically clear it is somewhat opeaic kind of cloudy from the abrasion to cut the glass.
I am sure their are others out there in I antique online site that can tell you better.
Craig
Excellent! Thank you for that info Craig. I called this cut glass because it does have sharp edges and points. The green is actually painted on.
there was also a type called near cut, take a look for mold lines.
Craig
Thank you so much Craig for all the wonderful information! Rita @ TesoroFino.com

Glass (18th-19th)

Cut Glass >>England & Ireland & Bakewell Glasshouse Libbey Glass Co. (US)
The main Patterns: Plain Sharp Diamonds or Fine Diamonds, Star Cutting, Pillar Flutes, Chequered Diamonds.

Pressed Glass >>Sowerby, Gateshead Greener & Co., Sunderland G. Davidson, Gateshead (England & Ireland)
New England Glass Co., LACY GLASS, Boston & Sandwich Glass Co. (US)

The best method of discerning whether glass has been pressed or moulded is to touch the inside the piece: Pressed glass is smooth, whereas the inside of blown moulded piece bears the outline of the design.

Dating and Authentication:
There are no foolproof ways to authenticate cut glass.
Polishing in 18th-19thC, wheel-cut glass is uneven.
Many fakes of original Irish cut glass appeared after 1918.
Cork Glass Co. and Waterloo Glass House Co., Marked their products on the base.

Hope this help your finding:-)
