Amberina Glass Jug ID = Fire King (Anchor Hocking) Soreno
« on: September 14, 2010, 05:04:15 PM »
Quite a hefty large amberina glass jug and have scoured the internet with some certainty that I would find the maker and pattern quite easily.....but..........nope.  Am assuming this is an American piece

Yes, and I should know that pattern but my memory is failing me.   .....

Ahh, a quick search fixed my memory.   What it looks like from here is Anchor Hocking's Soreno pattern.  I usually see it in green or gold.

PSS, dinklepip, add your general location to your profile and it will help others around the globe get a sense of where your items might be from.  Although I just realized it probably wouldn't have helped in this case as you're in the UK I guess.  ;D

Maybe it's rare.  It's certainly the same mold pattern.  It's from the '60s.  IIRC it was also sold as Fire-King Soreno.

This points to a very old page but look for 'soreno' on the page and see a collector mentions "half red,half gold" as one of the colors they collect.

Good luck. I'm out of ideas.
