Absolutely Bonnie - Most of the French designs are kinda-sorta stolen from the very famous Rene' Lalique!

That is why I had the "it might be French" idea at first, but the quality is very different between fine French and basically ANY other glass, lol. Which I've had the luck to learn from seeing and owning a few pieces here and there. :)

Comment by BikerBonnie on May 14, 2019 at 8:20am

seen a comparison to Lalique

Comment by BikerBonnie on May 14, 2019 at 8:16am

Hi and a Happy Belated Mothers Day to all! 

Image result for Heisey Verlys Glass

My "object de Art" above and up till now a mystery to me!

 So, I learned something interesting, and I wanted to share with our Glass Hounds. I've owned this really pretty, pressed glass thing (see above) that resembles a Window Box. It's impressed with several butterflies on a white frosted ground, with a machined, or fire polished base.

It has the looks of something French to me, but the quality, somehow just wasn't there. So this pretty thing has been bouncing around my office for at least 6-7 years because I didn't take the time to figure it out. I finally did!

Heisey-Veryls Glass and Verlys America! Who knew these terms? I've never heard of either one in 30 plus years of glass-hounding!

It turns out that the very beautiful Verlys France Glass that is known for it's beautiful designs and the blue/white opalescent in it's glass, that's only rivaled by Sabino imho anyways, did indeed make glass in the USA under the name Veryls America in the 1950's. They only offered some of their famous patterns.

 Example of Veryls America Glass Sold in USA in the 1950's.

 In 1955 Heisey - one of the best makers of USA Elegant glass did "lease" several molds from Verlys. Again it was very limited production, and I understand limited molds as well. In 1957 these molds were returned to Verlys and the Veryls America was closed not long afterward. Then (There's more to this story!)

After the dissolution of the Veryls America factory, Fenton - one of our Favorite American Glass makers did Purchase some ( or most - not clear on that point?) of the molds that had been used either by Heisey and or by Veryls America. (Neither of these points were very clear in what I've found so far) Anyways, Once Fenton owned some of these amazing molds they went Full Tilt Fenton - and did them in Amazing Fenton colors!

Example of a Fenton piece using formally owned by Verlys mold!

How bout that? Did any of you already know about this? And if so why didn't you tell me? LOL In any case, if you didn't know before, now you do! Keep your eyes pealed when out in the wild folks, you might stumble upon one of these beauties! Oh, PS  - I'm pretty sure most of these designs are not marked. Mine isn't, I might have discovered it's origins much sooner, if it had been!

Happy Hunting!
