Mod: Pictures gone, retained for info about Imperial Whirling Star and Fostoria Heirloom
HELP! I'm new, but excited about glass!
I have recently started collecting unique pieces of glass that I find on my deal-seeking outings (thrift stores, garage sales, etc). I have come across two new pieces that I love, but I cannot figure out the details on.
The first one is a large Milk Glass Punch Bowl (13" across, 7" high). I sent photos to Replacements, who couldn't identify it the first time. I sent it again, and this time they told me it was "Whirling Star" (or Hobstar??) by Imperial. The problem: I can't find any evidence that they ever made Punch Bowls of this pattern in Milk Glass. Does anyone know?? I am stumped!!
The second piece is a GORGEOUS greenish-blue bowl or vase with random peaks at the top, approx 7" tall. I took to an appraiser who told me it wasn't likely to be an old piece because the bottom showed essentially no scratches. She suggested it might be Czech glass or something . . . any ideas on maker or value??? :?
I appreciate the help of any psudo-experts out there, THANKS!
