Thanks Glen (I love your website as well)
That is very informative - most kind of you
I see the â€˜Acorn Patternâ€™ thread - 'Jeannette Glass' Acorn or Stippled Acorn pattern candy jar c1950s - it cost Â£1.00 so I was glad to see one sell for Â£15.00 on eBay - I will be keeping mine - I have a collection of the these square jars, all different designs - It looks so deco, amazing to know it was made nearer the 1960s - I reminds me always to be cautious when buying any expensive items that dealers have out as 1930s
I have only recently found out my Inwald bowls are perhaps post war as wellhttp://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,2710.0.html
- what do you think - note they never answer my question about the difference in the two bowls I have - one in two parts (blue), other three parts (amber), what do you think
I thought there was only one variation of Imperial 'Windmill' - I am beginning to learn that with carnival (and pressed glass) there are often many adaptations of the same design - I have been reading up about companies selling moulds to other companies and making subtle changes, etc - see my Inwald thread above and you will see I understand :wink: :wink: :shock: :?
The ashtray is moulded glass with the dog design â€˜cut intoâ€™ the base to give a three dimensional effect - it is frosted or left unpolished - it has the feel of being done by hand (or a cutting machine?) after the item was made, not during the original moulding - I like it because Scottie dog collectables are cute - I paid Â£0.50 but have been offered Â£30.00 for this just because of the Scottie dog connection LOL
Ref the bottle - I agree this is like hobnails I see on the Carnival site - I also collect diamond cut goblets with star cut bases - the bottle base is really very well done, it's got a 4mm round foot and the bottom is concave, it has been ground down and then highly polished, I can see this from the sharp edges and area where the grinder has gone off balance just at one side - funny I have never seen a hand finished base like this on a piece of pressed glass, mind you there are no mould lines on the bottle and you can only see a slight one at the top of the cone stopper â€“ it isnâ€™t worth much, just nice to get an attribution and know if it came as a range?

btw these are the star cut goblets I collect - I have sets of 7" blue ones and 5" white ones - milk glass I think they are called - who are they by again? - they have the star moulded bottom but the surface has been polished flat â€“ were these actually used or decorative, my God the set of six blue ones :roll: â€“ each weighs 1lb â€“ I must set the table at Xmas with them to see what people think LOL
