vaseline glass toy/miniature pieces (website)
« on: March 19, 2009, 09:46:40 PM »
Hello all
I just put together a website on some toy (and miniature) glass pieces in my collection.  If anyone has any info about the first item shown on this page, I would sure like to hear from you.  'Back in the Day', toys were made from wood, pewter, iron, or glass.  No plastic anywhere!  Toy glass was similar to bigger pieces that 'mother' had, only in half-pint sizes.

Fascinating Dave, thank you. 

Christine has a small jug which (from memory) is similar  to the one you have here:

This is exciting - I so appreciate the things I can learn here. I bought a "children's decanter set" some time ago - and didn't believe it - stupidly! I thought naaa, must have been for absinthe or laudanum. Two decanters of 5" and 4", a jug of 2 1/2" and a ?cup, beaker? of 1 1/2", in what may be rosalin. There are no seams in the glass that I can see, and they appear to be of excellent quality - but I am no expert! They have a dusty green glow under UV, but no where near as strong as vaseline glass. Just fascinating - thank you for the link to your site. Have attached a photograph to show size against a "normal" size decanter and glasses - excuse my photography - just learning! Best wishes, Lesley.

Lesley, that is a pretty cool set!  I don't know a thing about it, but it looks like quality glass.

Christine:  I see that waffle mini-sugar bowl went unsold (opening bid was 14.95 GBP).  Did you forget about it?

No I didn't forget, with postage it was just more than I was prepared to pay, wasn't too sure about the seller either.

That pink looks very Czechoslovakian, but it looks like two perfume bottles and a small sugar and creamer from the same manufacturer IMHO

Can you folks kindly take a look at this miniature vase (or is it a toothpick holder - I'm never quite sure how to tell the difference) please?

Its only 2½" high and looks as though it might be Czech, but I haven't found an exact match anywhere.  Glows brilliantly under a u.v. light.
TIA ;)
