Old Glass Bowl - Pressed ID = Duncan Miller "Sandwich"
« on: June 07, 2010, 07:43:39 PM »
Hi, I bought this for a whole $1 yesterday.   ;D

I am assuming (hoping) that it is old.  Appears to be pressed Glass (EAPG??) as you can see 4 seams (sections) in it.  It is footed.  Not sure IF this had a lid, or is just this way....or if it had a lid, it was long broken.  About 6.5 inches tall, and bowl is 7 inches wide.  Anyone know the pattern name, maker, or age?

Glass seems to have a *bit* of a Greenish Tint to it............Possible Glow?

Thanks in Advance  ;)

Very tricky, Rose - too many come from Indonesia, Malaysia and Turkey today  :nogos:

Foot and cup look like a marriage - but I can be completely wrong  :pb:  :-X

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.

thanks pamela:

Chalk this one up to Unknown....., it just kinda caught my idea.  Thought if I posted it here, I could give it back its identity.  Maybe not....

No I do not think the bowl, and foot are a marriage....they look as one here.  Maybe its the way I took the pic....but I will have a closer look, with my 3rd EYE.. LOL

thanks  :kissy:

Hi neilh....Looks like a match to me. 
Thanks for finding that  :hiclp:   I thought it looked old, and IF from 1920-1930...that is alright.  Not gonna get rich on it - but then I did not spend much on it....and in all reality....it is *coming on to be* almost a 100 years old.

Glad you added the description from that link -- (in case the ad/pic/info Expires soon) ---- Good THINKING  :thup:

Again Thank you -- always so Great to have an item identified.  I will check out if any *Glow* or even a tiny bit of glow -- when I get a UV light (just in case there is, since it is older......)

Maybe, or Maybe not ???? this could, BUT Duncan Miller is listed: http://www.vaselineglass.org/FACTORY.HTML

Same Duncan Miller Rose. The Sandwich refers to the flower pattern NOT the Boston and Sandwich Glass Company.
