I have no idea how old the blue hobnail pieces are. I can only say my mom collected in the 1970s and 80s.

Comment by vicki hufstetler on April 15, 2015 at 6:52pm

HI Lillian and All, Happy Spring ( at last ) :)

I think both your green powder box and your ruby juice glass are by Cambridge. The powder box is probably 30's - 40's. The tumbler might be later - 50's would be my guess.

I'm not sure your ice blue pieces are old. Do you know the history on them? The "Pointy Hobnail" is usually Fenton, and the color is very nice. But the bases don't look quite right to me.

Vases of this size are usually called "Violet Vase" - If that helps ya?

Have a good night!

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on April 15, 2015 at 12:23pm

Hobnail ice blue vases? Kinda small for vases - 3.5" tall.

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on April 15, 2015 at 9:58am

Anyone recognize the patterns on these items. A ruby red tumbler, juice size (3.25" tall, 2.75" top diameter). Maybe a powder jar or hair receiver, green glass with a delicate geometric cut-in pattern only on lid (4.25" diameter, 3.75 tall at lid handle).

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on April 10, 2015 at 2:42pm

Could this juice set be Fostoria's New Vintage pattern? No marks - there a pitcher and 5 tumblers. Would $25 be a reasonable price to ask at this year's estate sale?

Really like your "page" Vicki!

Comment by vicki hufstetler on April 6, 2015 at 8:38pm

Beautiful Photo's Friends! Cheering me up for Spring to Hurry up already!

It's still pretty cold here, I'm in with you Betty, we still have bits of snow in some spots - UGH! And of course the joys of living on a dirt road in spring include the Giant potholes all over the place LOL!

Hope everyone had a nice Easter and or Passover! I did most of the cooking, so I'm beat. Laid around a bit today, cuz I start a new sale Wed. and have another appointment tomorrow. The "Season" has officially Started!

Our first one was an older gentleman, a "Confirmed Bachelor" so I'm told by Mom and brother. And we have lots of "Mantiques and matching toys to prove it! But, If I find some cool glass, I'll be sure to share it with everyone!

Happy Hunting and Happy Spring!

You're sure lucky to live where you do Bonnie. Orchids growing all over your place

Comment by BikerBonnie on April 6, 2015 at 9:22am

My Orchid cuttings transplants. Just got coconut planter on right at flea market this weekend, put orchid cutting in, one on left I put cutting last year, doing well

Comment by Chris Pollock on April 5, 2015 at 12:33pm

Good to hear Betty. That's why I did not return to Illinois when I retired from the Army :)
