A Note From Author Barbra E. Mauzy
Often free with the purchase of a good or service, colorful Depression Glass dinnerware has adorned American tables since the late 1920s. This group is dedicated to preserving the history and joy of this vintage American treasure produced by companies such as Hazel-Atlas, Federal, Anchor Hocking, Jeannette, and McKee.

Anthracite is very hard coal.

Obsidian is an igneous rock, volcanic, like glass. Natives used it for arrowheads, etc.

anthracite Coal? Is this the same as Obsidian?

You're on John,

I have this hand carved 1 of a kind anthracite coal sculpture by Vik (Victor) Hayton, London. Dtd 1984.  1)  What's it worth and 2) where can I sell it?

Thanks in advance, Tom

You know what?  You are absolutely right.  Sometimes you think that you find out what something about the piece that you have, only to realize that what you think it could be isn't even close to what it really is.  If you guys need some help figuring out what you have, just let me know.  Just drop me a line, I might be able to steer you in the right direction.

I think it is the nature of the beast - lol

All of us Collectors, dealers and just pickers - we all have items we are just not sure of - I have a shelf full. I'm unwilling to part with them, unless or until I figure out just what it is - So you'all are not alone! :)

Even with my ability to locate stuff I too have many things that remain unidentified. It's a crazy world we live in.

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on March 5, 2012 at 2:45pm

I see a lot of items at tag and garage sales and the sellers don't seem to care if they've identified things at all and buyers don't seem to care, either. I guess it's the stickler in me that wants to know identities of things, especially glassware and china. If I ever do decide to sell any of it, it's easier to research and decide on a fair price.

Comment by Waurene Roberson on March 5, 2012 at 2:25pm

I have screwed up in the past by accepting someone else's identification online and have learned some caution.  I'm glad to know that it's not just me having a problem identifying things with certainty.  If I brought half the things I'm not sure about in here, I could keep y'all busy for months.  I figure that wouldn't be fair though, and if it's not something really odd or something that has driven me totally up the wall, I figure I'm better to just hang on to it for a while and see if something doesn't turn up, sooner or later.  And, Lillian, that is a lovely compote.  Looks like a find to me.

glad we solved the mystery...i guess?

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on March 5, 2012 at 2:07pm

It looks like there is some confusion by people selling this item. Some sellers identify it as Duncan Miller. Other sites with items ID's as Duncan Miller do not look like mine. The ETSY photo looks exactly like mine, although they don't identify the manufacturer. I may just have to call it "Sandwich" and be satisfied - that seems to be a consensus. I didn't mean to have people knock themselves out trying ti ID this, just if someone knew right off the top what it was. Thanks for all the help on trying to find the pattern!
