It contain's catelogs from major glass houses in Europe and can be very helpful! - This is a sister site to the above, and also must be translated.

Yes indeed Bonnie! It is an American Elegant Depression era Rolled Edge console bowl! and it's gorgeous Roseanne!

Lucky You! The blue is amazing, and I'm thinking it was Tiffin Glass co. of Ohio that made yours! The time period of this glassware is the American Depression era - ca. 1920's to early 1940's. The style to is Depression glass, however yours we call "Elegant" as apposed to the common wares of the same period.

Some of our better companies continued to make a much higher quality glassware for those who could still afford such wares.

This is evidenced by the "ground or machined base" if you turn your bowl over, you will see a very "clean" looking base that would appear to be blown, though it is in fact pressed glass, but hand finished to have the appearance of blown glassware! Also noted is the fine detail of the gold or gilt edge decoration, which may or may not have been done by the manufacturing company. Many of our Elegant pieces were "farmed out" to other companies that specialized in decoration such as yours, only. Others did it themselves in-house.

Thankfully there is an abundance of info now available to us both online and in print. If you will look above this post, to the left you will find our group links to help you ID your glassware.

 Just find one that notes "Elegant" depression glass and I'm sure you will be able to ID yours fairly easily!

Thank you for sharing your lovely Heirloom with us and welcome to Glass Hounds! We are happy to have you! :)

it looks like a rolled edge console

Comment by Roseanne McLoughlin on September 12, 2016 at 9:26pm

Wondering if anyone has any ideas about this bowl.  I believe it's pressed glass.  It belonged to my grandmother (I'm 67), but not sure how long she had it.  It sits on a black porcelain pedestal with gold-painted trim.  The bowl itself is edged in an engraved pattern in some form of gold.  Curious as to what style or period it might belong if any.

Howdy Rustic, Welcome to Glass Hounds! I would tend to agree with you on the Fostoria tumbler, but it might also be a later Cambridge pattern, which of course I've forgotten the name of - ugh! 

The first one might be Hocking, but that shape is not ringing any bells with me. You might also look at Libby and or Federal and Hazel Atlas ( all of whom, did a ton of drinking glass ware) 

If you look up top of this page, to the left, you will find a ton of links to help you ID all sorts of glassware. I've marked which types you can find along with the link.

Hope that helps ya a bit, and Nice to meet ya!

Hi, everyone!  Was wondering if anyone recognizes these?  I only have one of each I found in a box with some other pink depression glass.  The first one strongly resembles Fostoria's Virginia Pink, but I cannot find that they ever made a tumbler.  The other I'm thinking is maybe Anchor Hocking?

Thank you Lisa! You are very knowledgeable, especially on these vintage glasses! I find them difficult to ID.  So, WTG!

Another Gentlemen, I think has posted what I'm thinking may be original 1930's "Swanky Swigs" Hopefully they are posted here somewheres, :) 

Comment by Old Time Glass on July 8, 2016 at 2:42pm

I think the green one right above the Perspective red one could be by Bartlett-Collins, around the 60s

Comment by Old Time Glass on June 29, 2016 at 9:59pm

The red one is Noritake Perspective, made from 1970-85. The crystal one is Indiana Pebble Leaf #6, introduced in the1930s in crystal and green, then reissued in the 1950s-80s. It is in a 1980 catalogue with the ruby band. I'll keep looking for the rest
