Posting to Adam P's inquiry on his Stourbridge Tazza got me in a mood for taking pictures and today we have a very overcast sky in Oklahoma, so it is perfect for taking some photos.
I got these two nappy dishes about a month ago at GREEN VALLEY AUCTIONS in Virginia USA. I have since sold the Green opalescent one, but have not yet shipped it. I bought the pair in a lot, just to get the purple opalescent version.
Did any of the glass houses make more amethyst opalescent than others?
(I know, I know, all could have made them - and the workers traveled too, but thought I would put the question out there anyway.)
My first thought was Stevens & Williams or Webb. Both have matching 'raspberry prunts' on their underside. I bought the amethyst opalescent piece just because the color is so unusual. However, if there had not been a bit of vaseline glass on it, too, I probably would not have passed on the bidding.http://www.vaselineglass.org/nappyblack.jpghttp://www.vaselineglass.org/nappypair.jpghttp://www.vaselineglass.org/nappyunderside.jpghttp://www.vaselineglass.org/nappyraspberry.jpg
I also recently got a satin finish LEMONESCENT piece by Thomas Webb that matched my shiny version, so thought I would take a couple shots of that pair also. http://www.vaselineglass.org/lemonescentpair2.jpg
I sure wish I could find the silverplate marmalade holder that was made for this shape! I have seen one, but was outbid.
