just showing off a new piece of Toy Glass (vaseline!)
« on: August 17, 2009, 11:11:30 PM »
I just got this in the mail today from England.  It is a perfect miniature of a full size Victorian Stourbridge region basket.  Cased milk and cranberry glass, with applied handle and foot made from vaseline glass.  Height to top of handle: 3 3/4".  height to top of cranberry portion is 2 3/8".  It is the size of a toothpick holder if you don't measure the handle.  Inset photo shows it under a blacklight.  The milk glass is not blacklight reactive.

This may be of interest for you, a miniature Victorian vaseline glass candlestick , height 2" , weight 36gm, I have been told it was called a taper candlestick and was used either by the bed side with a small candle to light the main candle or for seeing up the stairs to the bed room, it will hold a very small birthday size candle

interesting looking piece Dave -  very unusual I wud imagine.     However, can I be Mr. Picky  -  is this really 'Milk glass' - as in European milch glass  -  or are you simply using the word milk to describe what is simply an opaque white glass.     I believe there is a difference??   Paul S.
