I may have to ressurect this post at some time when I've got a camera - 'cos although it doesn't have a prunt, I have obtained recently a beautiful vaseline glass acorn! :D 8) :D. Not an Audrey, but it will do.
(acorns were just mentioned)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

Let me guess .... is it an 'Acorn & Leaf Chalice'?   :shock:  :D

I have seen them attributed to Northwood, Dugan and (strangely, I thought!) Moser, but I'm not an expert in American vaseline / uranium glass.  (Well, I'm not actually an expert in any sort of glass  :oops:  :roll:  :lol: )  Does anyone know who actually made them?  And I understand repros were made by somebody after the 1930's.  Anyone know by whom?

Hurry up and get your camera, Sue!   :shock:  :roll:

If it's the acorn and leaf chalice (a spooner really) I think you think it is, it's by Mosser Glass http://www.mosserglass.com/ Lovely things but lacking that old factor

And here is one http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7409750836

 :oops: Sorry for my delay in replying - the notification was over the page in my in-box.

My acorn is just an acorn. It has bent, sort of pointy, leafy feet, like the thorn vases. It might have had 3 at one time, but only has 2 now. It's big, for an acorn, and it is hollow, with a lip. You could get your pinkie tip in it. It's very sweet. :D

Sue, is it anything like any of these?
I couldn't quite tell if you meant the vase itself was acorn-shaped or if it had applied decorations...sorry if I'm barking up the wrong tree on this one!
Anyway, Victoriana buffs should enjoy these! :)

They all glow wonderfully green under U.V,despite their whiteness!
All of the white cased items with applied flowers & the like that I've got in my collection have uranium.It's odd that it was used to make white glass, but I'm not complaining! :D
In fact, when I first got a black light a few years ago, I was happily shining it around the house at all the obvious pieces of vaseline glass- & was very surprised to see all the white things that turned green! :shock:
I tried it on my glass button collection later & found that a lot of rather plain looking white buttons have a double life as glowing green ones!
Hours of fun! :lol:

Oh - I know I need that camera! Trouble is, I have this non-nagging policy. It works.... eventually.  :twisted:

I've been upstairs and got hold of my acorn, I can actually get my entire finger into it, but I've got quite small hands. It's not a vase, it may have been for spills or toothpicks, but the narrow opening leaves me thinking it is just a table decoration. The narrow opening is in the top of the nut.

LOL :lol: at Sue with a large glass acorn stuck on her finger.

I have a small collection of white uranium glass: two Victorian baskets, a Victorian bowl, a small Victorian vase, a piece of American depression glass (I did know the manufacturer but the only name that comes to me is Kerr-McGee and thats an oil company!) and a piece of souvenir ware  from Canada that might be Fenton custard glass,
