Can anyone help?? I've tried desperately to find out more about this Childs Punch Bowl Set. According to Newbounds 2005 Price Guide (pictured pg 45) it was featured in Butler Bros 1910 catalog, stating it came in Milk Glass and crystal. They call the pattern "Wild Rose". I don't know if Butler Bros used that name in catalog, or if Newbounds determined it was. Other Wild Rose patterns I've seen show leaves cropped very close to the flower, closer than the ones on my punch bowl.
My mother knows that it was her mothers OR my great grandma's. 1910 would have been correct time frame for my g'ma to have received it. late 1890's would have been right time frame for my Great G'ma to have received it. Newbound's book also doesn't show or mention 6 iron (copper??) hooks that are w/my set. Wouldn't they have stated this in their book if Butler Bros catalog showed them?? And they don't say it came in BLUE MG, if that was all the rage, wouldn't Butler Bros/Newbounds have mentioned that?? The inside is perfectly smooth (no indentations). Bottom inside and out is also perfectly smooth (polished pontil?) I've seen a couple of very similar patterns on turn of the century items, but never identical.
Some have suggested Greentown, but a guy from Greentown website says no Greentown items made in blue milk glass. Others have suggested Northwood. Both g'mas lived in Dayton, OH as kids. I wonder if the 1910 Butler Bros item may have been a remake of an earlier version ie. late 1890's? Oh, ANY info would be so appreciated! Thanks in advance to anyone who may respond
