Looks like old Fenton Ruffle on the pitcher, and applied handle would be correct as well. I'm not familiar with this type of glass though, I'm sure it has a particular name.
It would be best if you do some really good research first on it. Before trying to establish value, Fenton is Down currently in the market, but good glass seems to retain it's value. :) Lucky for us!
I thought Fenton too. But thought the $35 asking price was a bit low, so kept second guessing myself. After talking to the person that rents the booths and her telling me that that person had been bringing in a lot of her old glass, I decided to go back to the booth and scoop it up. I thought the crimping was like my cranberry Fenton pitcher so took a chance. Thanks, feel better with another opinion!
I actually think $35 is a pretty good price, for the market here in MI. UGH. It's bad. I'm only getting a few dollars for depression glass, except really nice pieces, and I'd prolly get around $25 for your set. The good news is that things go up and down, they go out of style and come back with a roar, so sometime soon lets hope we see these beautiful old things go WAY UP for a change! Tee Hee - It would certainly make my day!
I'm still getting decent prices on old, original Carnival glass, and I mostly have Fenton. Also, The odds are that your set is Fenton. Although, I didn't get to see the bases of any of the pieces?
Do you have any pontil marks?
I will have to get it back out and take a look(pic) if bottom. Can't remember exactly what it looked like. I have been packing a lot because we bought our "biggest" antique yet, a pre 1880 Queen Anne Victorian house on a couple acres w/heated Inground pool that we are moving to. But will try to locate it today or by tomorrow because we will be making a run to other house.
OOH, How exciting! Sounds like a dream house! We used to own an old Victorian Farm house, where we raised our kids for 14 years. It didn't have a garage and it was A lot for me to clean, but what fun it was to restore!
We built the one were in now, but our youngest is getting married June 2, so this one is too big for us now too!
