You're the BEST, Glen.  Thank you.  Can you date this, since it doesn't have a signed mark?

Hi Nancy - I believe it was introduced around 1907 and produced through to the early 1920s or thereabouts (possibly as late as 1927). I understand a few items in the line were re-issued in Carnival and opalescent glass in the 1970s - for Gary Levi (Levay Glass).

Your fabulous set is undoubtedly from around the date you suggested in your first post. Congratulations on such a superb set of glass.

OOOOO Nancy. I'm a girl. I really need to have something on my sign-off, don't I? Like Max does (she's a girl too  :lol: ) My full name is longer and I never use it, I prefer the shortened version (in fact it's the only name I answer to  :shock: ).

ps I'm a bit blonder than that, but I admit to a little help from my "friend" L'Oreal  :oops:

Incidentally, in the thread above there was a short discussion about the distinctive shape of the handles. Very "Chippendale-esque"! Certainly various makers used that distinctive squared off shape - but the most unusual example of it that I have seen is on a Riihimaki (Finland) sugar and creamer set that was made around late 1920-1930. An even more unusual characteristic of this particular set is that the pattern on the body of the items is a fine raised stipple and a floral motif, very much in the style of some Imperial (USA) glass patterns.

I'll try and post a photo sometime. It's shown in our third book on page 81 and we named it "Double Starflower".
