Thanks Donna, hope his recovery goes well.

Comment by Donna Cook on August 20, 2014 at 6:16pm

Wishing Judy a speedy recovery.  My husband had his hip replaced Monday and he came home today, so I'll be playing nurse for awhile. 

Comment by Chris Pollock on August 20, 2014 at 5:27pm

Good afternoon Hounds! I know I've not been around much lately, more and more appointments. Judy is doing better she had me take her to the big GW store in Round Rock last week (we always find things there). She got some shoes and clothes, I got a couple of bowls. Not sure if their old or new but will post photos later this week. One looks kind of like 'thumb print'. She goes in tomorrow to get this big (1.1cm) kidney stone sound blasted and hopefully it will break into little tiny pieces.  Then I guess it will be awhile before we go on any excursions again but hopefully not too long.

hi Marc has posted in the discussion - sure one of you hounds can help him - he had this on whadja find but no reply

Hi Folks, just popping in to see how everyone's doing!

Kathy - I agree with Donna - I think your pitcher/Ewer is Blenko - Same era as viking, but their glass is all hand blown. It's very cool to!

Mary - Super nice finds for .50! Not quite sure on your set, but yes, I would say it's a berry or dessert set. Appears to be pressed. So, it's either US or perhaps Japan. It would be difficult if not impossible to find a maker, when we don't know who did the painting, ( factory, sent out, hand done) etc... But, the black spots might come off using most any kind of metal polish( not brasso) - like simi-chrome or Maas which is my favorite.

BTW - If you are a fan of old china - especially colored pieces like Fiesta, and or silver or old 1920's hammered aluminum - this stuff will make those things like brand new to!

I use it on everything, so I know it's safe. And, I also think I've had the same problem. Weather it's fired on gold or silver - both can and do tarnish.

Hope that helps - Happy Summer's End to all!

Hi Kathy, Did you search Blenko glass ? Your pitcher reminds me of their glass.
