Hi Glass Hounds, I went to the Goodwill today and wow, they had some good stuff there.  I picked out only one of many nice glass candy dishes.  This one is a royal blue Huburg by Fostoria.  It was sold by Tiara Glass.  It's a beauty.

Thank you.... Vicki  & Angela

I thought the rim was to wide to be a vase. i was wrong!

Comment by Angela Evans on July 27, 2014 at 5:39pm

Kathy...have a look at this link for more info on your controlled bubble stem vase...yours is a lovely find.


Comment by vicki hufstetler on July 27, 2014 at 5:20pm

Well Done Kyle and Shirley! My Glass hounds know their Stuff! :)

Comment by Kyle :-D on July 27, 2014 at 5:18pm

Got lucky. Guessed on The Christmas ornament one and the one about Sandwich plates lol

Comment by Shirley Grundman on July 27, 2014 at 4:43pm

That was a fun quiz.  I only missed the first question on goofus glass!

Comment by vicki hufstetler on July 27, 2014 at 3:16pm

Thank you for the quiz Lillian - I "aced" it - LOL


Comment by vicki hufstetler on July 27, 2014 at 3:12pm

WTG Donna! That's a Very nice price! I'm happy for ya!

Kathy, Yes, I think it is Italian, and I don't think it's very old, it's a vase. The rim is to wide to be used as a "pilsner" or other bar-ware type of glass. It's pretty!

Comment by kathy Curnutte on July 27, 2014 at 1:43pm

Italian?  Swedish? And what do I call it? A vase or barware?

Stands 8.75 inches tall, 3.12 inches across the top and 2.5 inches across the base. Appears to be quality glass with one air bubble.

Has controlled bubbles and a blue ball in the base. There is also a hole on the bottom into the ball.

Take a quiz on vintage glass. You don't have to join FunTrivia, you may play as a guest.
