Well we made it back safely. Here are today's finds. The first is a lamp that Judy found that she just had to have. The shade is reverse painted and the glass is at least 3/8" thick:

Here's the shade by itself:

and here are my finds:

The above Nappy has the L.G.Wright 'bee' mark from the 60's-70's on it. Photo below is the bottom.

The little dish above has the 1951 Imperial mark on it. A bottom view is below.

The above Nappy still has the blue Imperial sticker on it as well as the item number sticker. It also has the 1951 Imperial mark. A bottom view is below.

The little bowl above has the 1982 Imperial mark.

Happy Labor Day weekend to one and all!

Comment by vicki hufstetler on Thursday

LOL Chris! Have fun on your next adventure  - and be sure to share your finds with us please! :)

Kathy C.  - No worries, it would not be "Tiffin" as their glass is "Elegant Depression era" and was never blown! Some of their, and other companies glass was "Mold Blown" but would not have any pontil mark. That still leaves us with the original two options.

I would head over to Czech Bohemia first - and if no luck their, I'd try again with "Italian, Murano, Venetian, Opaque Art Glass"

I think you will find out! Just share with us when your mystery is solved! :)

Happy Hunting Glass Hounds! I'm off in the boat again this weekend, looks like rain, but I don't much care, LOL A "bad day" on the boat is better than any "Good day" at work!

Morning Mary, yes, it was definitely pulverized. Now she has to catch the pieces for two weeks then take to the lab. I have no idea why but that's what they want her to do. I'm getting excited, tomorrow we're heading out for a road trip to some antique stores. I hope my debit card doesn't crumble from over use of course we've got hers if that happens.

Comment by kathy Curnutte on Wednesday

Struck out The pontll has been polished smooth.

Comment by Mary Wald on Wednesday

Thanks for trying to help with the bowls.  Yay that Judy is getting out and about!  Hope that kidney stone gets pulverized.
