Thanks Anne, I think they're wonderful too. My first thought was US Glass but my catalogs/books only date back to the 40's. I couldn't find a match with the handles or the pattern in those books. Yes, I need help my American brothers and sisters!!!!
I just finished up cleaning them and they really have an interesting shine to them. The clear glass almost iridizes in the light, could it possibly be carnival? The gold flashing has ripples and swirls, does this typically happen when flashing? It's a mystery to me.
