Thank you Vicki. This piece has me stumped and ANY help would be grateful.

Comment by vicki hufstetler on Friday

It is just so different! I have NEVER seen a bowl with that shallow, figural edge, and that color! It really looks more like a white pearled opalescence, rather than the well known blue-ish color of most French glass?

I'm racking my brain trying to remember anything about a white opalescence and all I can compare it to is Antique American Carnival glass. White is a very rare color in that genre, so I wonder? Could it have been a very early American piece?

Comment by vicki hufstetler on Friday

Re-posting Colin's bowl, in case anyone can help on this:

Comment by Classy Glass Antiques on Friday

Vicki - I agree TOTALLY with your observation about my French opalescent glass bowl, as it sure looks like a lamp shade, however it is not. The centre of the bowl is so precise in its roundness and almost completely transparent which makes it appear as a 'hollow' hole. There are no maker marks of signatures anywhere on the piece, and I am wondering if the piece is earlier in date than the 1930s. The colour type is unlike any other French opalescent glass that I know of. Its almost like 'SILK' in both touch and its appearance.  It 'may not be' French??? But am fairly certain that it is. I will take some more photo's (given some time)

PHEW. I've been sooooo busy this past week. I hardly know the time of day, but am hanging-on in here and there... LOL.  I hope that all of you guys are keeping happy, safe & well... 

Chris - your photo's of the garden has given me MORE work to think about... (smile) I must try to tend to my flower beds now that the weather allows... 

Comment by Chris Pollock on Friday

You're right Vickie, I'll do some more research

Comment by vicki hufstetler on Thursday

Also: I wanted to tell everyone - please disregard my message about the Whadja find group, it's back - LOL

Comment by vicki hufstetler on Thursday

Hmmmm Chris! I cannot find the origin of the name "Pacifica" anywhere. And, did you notice that the only place this name is used in on Ebay?

I suggest you post your item in the EAPG fb group or on the Collectors Society page, to verify if it is or is not an original pattern, as NONE of my books list that name. Sorry..........

Comment by Chris Pollock on Thursday

Vickie, here is a sugar on eBay in that pattern, hopefully I'm correct in that my bowl (actually I think it's a punch bowl, missing the stand) is the same pattern. It shows 1919 so if mine is the same pattern I guess I could use that year. What do you think?


Comment by vicki hufstetler on Thursday

Chris - thank you for that link, I'm going to try and find that plant somewhere - it's very cool!

None of my EAPG books list any pattern called "Pacifica", You are certain that's it's name right? If so, I would say it's a later made piece, one of the "Second Gen. EAPG"s!

Comment by Chris Pollock on Thursday

Does anyone know what years the US Glass Pacifica Hobstar pattern #6425 was produced?
