Angela - Thank you very much! I know quite a bit about Isadora, as my minor in collage was Dance/Ballet - specifically. Isadora was a ground breaking person in the dance world, in the early part of the 20th century! Sadly the poor gal met her end in a horrible way. She was always known to wear long and flowing scarves round her neck. Unfortunately, she had worn one to a party, and left by "auto" - a "big deal" at the time, which did not have an enclosed space, or "convertible" we would say today. Her long scarf was caught under the wheel of the auto, while driving. Quite horrific really, and in her prime at the time!  :(

That info does help us date things to though. Which is a good thing!

Chris - your cream, sugar and bowl are all modern Czech Crystal - remember: First look at the hobstars - theirs are not like ours. Next look at the toothed edges - theirs are always too pointy, and uneven. In USA or English/Irish cut, you will always have wide, evenly spaced teeth, most always a few will have nicks or chips in them too! They do show their age a bit. :)

Kathy C  - I would imagine yours are Czech as well.

 Chris: Your "Diamond" shaped pieces are probably from a "bridge set" and were used as ashtrays - usually you have the diamond shapes, along with the club shapes. They were small enough to provide the player with their own, small ashtray when playing bridge or other card games on a standard "card table".

I just love your Amethyst piece - appears to be "Thumbprint" - it may be signed. Look carefully over that one. It sure is pretty!

Also, on your possible AB bowl, I can't see the seams your speaking off? Does the surface on the outside feel very sharp/rough to the touch? It's so difficult to tell from pics. But if it is also very heavy, as opposed to your EAPG pieces of similar design, it probably is AB Cut! ( fingers crossed for ya) Look it over well for a signature. A black light is helpful along with strong magnification. :)

Thank you for all the "Eye Candy" Friends! Was a very nice surprise! Sale is Mon-Tues-Wed next week, I'll post a few pics when I get our add up for you to see. :)

Happy Hunting!

Vicki ....you asked me if this piece had a name..I have just found out from my new book, that she is called 'Isadora' after Isadora Duncan the famous dancer !!

Comment by Chris Pollock on September 10, 2014 at 8:37pm

That wasn't it Kathy, I'll keep looking though. If you spot it here let me know - http://www.pinterest.com/Capot1948/vintage-glass-depression-glass-a...

Comment by Chris Pollock on September 10, 2014 at 8:30pm

I'll let you know Kathy as soon as I can get to my books. I think I've got another piece or two with the same design. I'm probably way wrong but I was thinking comet in the stars. But please don't quote me on that, I'll look and see what I've got.

Comment by kathy Curnutte on September 10, 2014 at 8:18pm


I have 4 stemmed cordial glasses with the same bursting star design as your cream and sugar. I've not been able find a match.

What is it called?

Comment by Chris Pollock on September 10, 2014 at 8:03pm

Most are Antique Mall type places. The one we went to today was in Round Rock which is right outside Austin. They have some pretty high-end stuff but if you look closely in the booths you can find some bargains. Another place we go is McGregor which is outside of Waco. The store there is huge and since the area is mostly country folk there are some good bargains there, just have to look. We also go to Burnet, there are a few antique stores there and one place called 'Finds' where the owner sold my wife a $450.00 Waterford bowl for $63.00 a few years ago. There is a large GW store in Round Rock where I've found a few things but the other GW stores around are slim pickins.

Comment by Betty Proper on September 10, 2014 at 7:15pm

Chris, are your places mostly Antique shops or Salvation Army-type places or  ?????

Comment by Chris Pollock on September 10, 2014 at 6:23pm

This was about a 60mile trip one way. That's usually about how far we have to go. Usually skip at least a month before going back to the same place again.

Comment by Betty Proper on September 10, 2014 at 5:50pm

My heavens! You do find some lovely items.  How far and wide do you have to travel to find so much?
