Identification on a couple of items
« on: May 05, 2006, 07:12:22 PM »
Hi everyone!  I went to a fantastic estate sale today and bought lots of beautiful glass, 11 pieces in all.  But here are two pieces that kind of have me stumped.  One is a pitcher which had enough grime on it to make be really think it might be old.  And the other piece is a vase which I think I've seen this pattern before but can't seem to place it correctly.  So any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.  Nancy

Hello:

The pitcher is Hobbs Glass Co.'s No. 335 (called Hexagonal Block by collectors) with their gold etching decoration.  It was introduced in 1890.

The celery vase is Adams & Co.'s No. 86 (called Daisy & Button with Thumbprint by collectors) with amber staining.  It was likely introduced in the period 1885-87.

Wow!! What a pair of sparklers!  Lovely.  And Sid, what a mine of information, I had not heard of those glass companies, but have just had a look in Ivo Haanstra's Glass Fact file book and see they are USA based companies.  thanks for that.

Thank you Sid.  I thought the celery vase might be Buttons and Bows but I knew that was wrong, so now I'm glad to know that its Daisy & Button with a thumbprint.  I just fell in love with the pitcher and am so lucky that you knew what the pattern and maker was.  Thanks again!!!!  Nancy
