"Michael, yours is an "Entirely different animal" LOL. Your base is much older, is it brass, bronze or?
Yours was meant to be part of a "smoking set". Likely from 1930's or earlier. You are in UK right? If so, you may want to…"
"Hi Bill, What you have here is a 1970's Czech made Crystal candy dish!
There are many pieces out there that match this, if your interested in collecting more for a set!
Feel free to join our Glass Hound Heaven Group here on IAO. We would love…"
"I'm agreeing with Paula, that this is not originally made to be a vinegar cruet. It looks much more like a perfume bottle. Was likely part of a vanity set that matched, or it could have been a single bottle that was made for a specific…"
"Hi, Your covered butter and the pretty divided dish are both Czech made crystal. The Czech makers have and still do copy many of our old glass patterns. These types of patterns, with the large etched flowers were made in USA, in the early…"
"Hi Chris, Welcome back! What a lovely dish! Super nice find!
It all looks right to me, for AB period glass. A relish, is likely the shape name. So pretty!
The edges of the dish are hard to see, but from what I can make out, they appear to be right…"
"Hi Derrik, Welcome to Glass Hounds! What a shame, that your pretty crystal glasses got broken. Sadly, it happens to most of us though. I think Jeff (house of charm) has an excellent idea that would be the least expensive way to go, but if your…"
"Hmm, that's an odd one Barbara! My first thought was garden lantern too, but I think your right, that its just to small for that use. So, my second thought was an Asian bug/Cricket box. It's to bad you don't have a lid for it. If it…"
"Ahh, Northwood was my first guess! LOL Still, it's unlikely that this was factory made by Northwood. It was not uncommon for US glass company's to take on consignments: ie.. Another company wished to have these specific lanterns made, so…"
"Craig is right - Vinegar cruet - The shape and size matters, but It might have been made by L.E. Smith - or the predecessor of them, which I can't recall at the moment.
They are pretty well known for "crackle glass"."

Thanks for replying! No, my Vicki isn't a scientist. She used to work as an economist at Texas Instruments, I think, then became a romance novelist (writing as Victoria Chancellor, her maiden name). She is from Kentucky and Chuck might be from there as well, not sure, but they lived in Texas for probably 30 years.
Thanks for the friend request. Why do you think that my vase is French St. Cloud? I have looked at pieces from that period, and it doesn't seem to look anything that was produced from that time period. My best guess is that it is from Owens pottery, circa 1900, when this glaze and painted floral scenes were popular. Many pottery companies were copying Rookwood during this time period, but I can't figure out who this is pottery maker is. I have seen two different pieces with similar markings and the "SCloud" stamp, but I have not been able to identify the maker. Very frustrating. I would be interested if you know anything more about this piece.
Hi Vicki, thanks for your response. I am using a regular pc but when I click on the icon, nothing happens. Next to it there is a space and a button that says browse, I click on it and find the photo I want and then click upload but all I get is that error message. Nothing seems to work.
Vicki his name is Ron McCracken and his grandparents and parents are pretty well known in Harrison. He grew up on Town Hall drive and his parents still live there. We just got back from staying at our lake home in Petoskey and visiting his family.

Depression Era and Depression Glass are interchangeable terms. True DG was made before WWII but we include some newer patterns in our books because other authors did and our readers expect to see these patterns when they open our books, too. Most economists agree that the actual Great Depression lastest through the 1930s and the glass companies continued their production of these patterns up until WWII when the natural resources to produce the glass and the equipment as well was directed to war needs. Jim and I have started using the term "Depression Era Glassware" as young collectors are uncertain what "Depression Glass" means. I hope this adds some clarity. B
