Oh Kathy, Please do share pics of your new finds with us! Yes, I've refrained myself quite a bit from attending "church and other" new sales for the very reason you stated - but If you did find treasure, that's all that matters! :)

Chris - I've finally got pics to share - LOL, You know I'm not so good at getting my own pics up quickly. I just forget. I go in a room and think, oh I was supposed to do? HEHE!

Here ya go:

There is still a wee bit of cloudiness present, but I'm pretty sure it' just residue left from the tablets. I swished around a bit of windex and it seems to have cleared most of that up as well. I'm very happy to have saved two more little antique glass treasures!

I'm still on my "cleaning mission" - once I get a bit further, I'll post a few more pics.

Chris - please do share some of your new pieces too, when you get the chance! :)

Can't wait for the photos Vicki, speaking of cleaning, I've got about 30 or so pieces of silver plate that are desperate need of polishing, guess I'll have to get enthused about that soon and get to work plus like you all my glass needs to be cleaned. I still have to find places for quite a bit of it but until I do it's just here and there throughout the house.

Comment by kathy Curnutte on January 17, 2015 at 8:13pm

Thank you Vicki,

Yes, I did find a few more interesting items

A Hazel Atlas fruit bowl with 7 berry bowls,a Napco head vase, 4 Fostoria berry bowls and an amazing set of Swanky Swigs Old Time Music Mugs.

As I mentioned, it was a feeding frenzy and some people......

Comment by vicki hufstetler on January 17, 2015 at 6:41pm

Hi Kathy - and a Happy New Year to you also! That is a gorgeous pitcher! My guess is that it was used for Milk, or water. It certainly looks to be Nippon, but if you do not find that pattern under the numerous known Nippon pieces, try Germany or Austria - they also did some Moriage work.

But, Nippon is most likely! Did you find any glass pieces at the sale?

Oh, I finally finished soaking my poor little perfume bottle - and I'm pretty happy with it! I'll take some pics tonight, and share tomorrow with the group. I've been attempting to CLEAN my entire collection - Holy Moly!

One doesn't realize just how much stuff we own, till we start tying to clean it all! LOL, think I'm gonna downsize a bit, and maybe make room for some new pieces to!

Happy Hunting!

Comment by kathy Curnutte on January 16, 2015 at 7:09pm

Happy New Years,

Hope everyone is well. I've tried Bar Keepers Friend Soft Scrub with some luck that is if you can get your hand inside to rub.

It does take a lot of rinsing or it'll leave it's own film. I just soak the glass and change the water several time.

Attended a grand opening of a GW in St Louis. Oh, my goodness what a feeding frenzy!

Found this unmarked footed pitcher or maybe it's a coffee pot minus the lid. Guessing it's Nippon. What do you think??ewer%203.JPG




Comment by vicki hufstetler on January 12, 2015 at 8:08pm

Well, I'm a bit disappointed. I didn't take pics yet, because my fav - the really Art Nouveau little one is still Very Cloudy and Sick.......... Sigh!

I did use a large plastic bowl, figuring that it would have the least likelihood of reacting to the tablets?

The larger one is looking good though! And the silver did not come out cleaner, but a very small bit of elbow grease on the top and edges with a scrubby sponge took the tarnish right off! So that's the Good news. I'm going to give it another try. This time I'm gonna crush a few tablets and put them inside my really sick, poor little perfume bottle - LOL

I'll keep ya posted! :)

Comment by Chris Pollock on January 12, 2015 at 9:27am

Well Vicki, what's the verdict?

Comment by Chris Pollock on January 10, 2015 at 10:02pm

Those are pretty Vicki. When I did the sugar I put quite a few tablets right inside of it and the same with the lid I laid it on the top and it kind of fell to the side and I places some tablets right on top of it. I don't have dentures but I think I've heard/seen that they're soaked in a plastic dish? Don't really know for sure. Good luck and can't wait to see the 'after' photos.

Comment by vicki hufstetler on January 10, 2015 at 8:42pm

Thank you Angela- that has had me wondering for some time. We seem to come across many Opalescent Old glass pieces, that I've not been able to ID. Now, with your help, I'll bet I can find out who, what, where and when! :)

Chris and All, I've got my perfume/scent bottles soaking now. I put them in a big ole plastic bowl - Did you use a plastic tub? I used about 6-8 tab's. But the "cheapie tablets" I got have like 30 in the box! The perfume bottles are small to,  so I thought I'd give it overnight to see what happens. I placed one of the tablets right on top of each bottle, (they are upright in the bowl) hoping the stuff would get to the inside?

I was wondering on the material of the tub/sink/bowl we are using in our soaking process though. I wonder if the dental tablets react to certain material in one way or another? I think I need to email Colin - LOL

I've got to many questions and not enough answers, but am still convinced that this treatment certainly does "help" if nothing else! :) Oh - here are my pics of the "before" - they are very dusty, ( We live on a dirt road - ugh) and yes, one does have a large interior crack.
