Thanks i will look more -- great ideas..

Comment by vicki hufstetler on August 26, 2014 at 7:07pm

Hi Folks! Kathy C - Those are beautiful - a stunning pair of sticks! They look to be blown - do you see a pontil mark on the bases?

You may be exactly right, but they might also be Venetian/Italian. So if you have no luck with Czech/Bohemia - give "Murano Opaque Candlesticks" a try! Super nice find!

Hi Maureen, I cannot make heads or tails of that signature, unfortunately, can you? Your vase will be called "Iridescent" and because of the signature, I suspect it is "Studio art Glass" - so try "Studio Art Glass, Iridescent, signed" and click on "images" in goggle search - and see if you can find a match for that odd signature.

It truly drives me nuts that both Studio glass blowers, and Studio potters either don't mark their wares at all, or else they sign them so poorly one can seldom figure out who made it - GRRR!

Just an FYI for you Too Maureen - the original makers of "Iridescent, Aureen" and a few other terms, were by Tiffany, Quezel and Stuben! All of which are VERY PRICEY - so don't get to happy if that is what you find - LOL

Found a stunning pair of candle sticks. As bright as you can get. They react immensely under UV. I believe they are new Czech glass but have yet to find them. 3 inches tall, 4.5 inch base.

Thanks, vicki. A font of knowledge, as always.

Comment by vicki hufstetler on August 25, 2014 at 7:18pm

Hi Hounds, Lillian your Pres. Garfield plate is EAPG. You should be able to find comparable's for that on ebay or other online selling sites. Same for the Fenton, but use "Fenton Hobnail Stretch glass vase".

The two cranberry pieces are modern. They are after original EAPG one's made in the same manor. I don't know who did those.

Your Blue Satin glass piece is a "Rose vase" - you could try Goggle images to determine if it is a Fenton or not. It looks like it may be.

Hope that helps a bit!

Cranberry flashed goblets.
