Chris, you & Judy, sure found some pretty glass pieces.  And I love the lamp even if it is a reproduction.  The bar set is nice too.  It was sold by Tiara Glass.  That's great you got the under tray too.

Kathy, I personally don't think your white candle sticks are U.S. But I may be wrong.  Hopefully Vicki can give some info on them.

Everybody have a great holiday.

Hello Glass Hounds. Summer hasn't forgotten us in the midwest, it's streamy

I'm not sure what I found this time, perhaps candle holders.

The two are not alike but similar. 1.5 inches tall x 3 inches wide. Have a waffle print inside, on the bottom and on the base of the of the outside.

Made of opaque glass that looks just like ice.

Any clues?

Hi Vicki, no wonder it wasn't 'real' expensive. It sure looks like an original you can even see the brush strokes on the flowers. As to the bowl  it could be AB, I posted a photo on the 'Cut Glass Collectors' FB page. I've got to get another project done and get my books out again. Did I show you this bar set I got in Galveston in June right before Judy went into the hospital?

Comment by vicki hufstetler on August 29, 2014 at 2:10pm

Wow Chris - You and Judy made a killing! Super nice finds! I love the lamp to - I'm a lamp person though, LOL I've run out of room for any add ons - lol

It's a reproduction, but even those are collectible and have a good resale value, so I'm sure you did very well on it!

On your "heavy, Crystal" bowl - Is it cut or pressed? It has the "Brilliance" of AB glass, I'm hoping that's what it is?

I've not done much shopping either Donna, We don't have really any good glass at this estate, it's mainly linens and really cool vintage clothing, etc.. I also came down with bronchitis - UGG! I was nearly over it, then went to work for two days, and it's back! Just took  my last antibiotic and am so hoping this thing GOES AWAY Quick! I don't have time for this - LOL

Lillian, I'm thinking that is a fair price for your pretty basket. It looks modern to me. Do you have any history on it? It's possible that it could fall under "Moroccan Amethyst" depression era glass, but the pattern does not look familiar. Check that out first in any case. And Good Luck on your sale!

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on August 29, 2014 at 5:58am

I was thinking of putting this 4.5" diameter amethyst nut/mint dish out at my next sale and asking $5 for it. (it looks brownish violet in the photo, but it's actually a lovely deep purple). Would that be too high, too low or just right a price?

Comment by Donna Cook on August 28, 2014 at 10:54pm

That sounds like a promising trip.  I haven't been buying much glass lately, so it's nice to see all your finds.  

Comment by Chris Pollock on August 28, 2014 at 10:35pm

Thanks Donna, we needed it. She's seen that lamp several times but is so very picky about what she gets. I finally told her today, if you want it, get it. That made her happy. We're heading out next Friday in the opposite direction. Haven't been that way in about 6 months so there must be plenty of new finds for us.

Comment by Donna Cook on August 28, 2014 at 10:15pm

Chris - I love the lamp, it its just beautiful.  It was a successful trip, it's great that you and Judy are getting some retail therapy. 

Comment by Chris Pollock on August 28, 2014 at 10:02pm

Here are a few more

This is the bottom view of the last bowl in my previous post

The next bowl below is heavy, rings like crystal, has no marking however I'm pretty sure I've seen this pattern in another of my pieces.

Here's the bottom view

This is a bowl that I found when we went to a Good Will about 60miles away last week. First chance I've had to photograph it.

Bottom view

And lastly another bowl from the same Good Will. Probably not anything special but I liked it. Needs cleaned up.

Comment by Chris Pollock on August 28, 2014 at 9:55pm

Well we made it back safely. Here are today's finds. The first is a lamp that Judy found that she just had to have. The shade is reverse painted and the glass is at least 3/8" thick:

Here's the shade by itself:

and here are my finds:

The above Nappy has the L.G.Wright 'bee' mark from the 60's-70's on it. Photo below is the bottom.

The little dish above has the 1951 Imperial mark on it. A bottom view is below.

The above Nappy still has the blue Imperial sticker on it as well as the item number sticker. It also has the 1951 Imperial mark. A bottom view is below.

The little bowl above has the 1982 Imperial mark.
