I may have to ressurect this post at some time when I've got a camera - 'cos although it doesn't have a prunt, I have obtained recently a beautiful vaseline glass acorn! :D 8) :D. Not an Audrey, but it will do.
(acorns were just mentioned)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Let me guess .... is it an 'Acorn & Leaf Chalice'?   :shock:  :D

I have seen them attributed to Northwood, Dugan and (strangely, I thought!) Moser, but I'm not an expert in American vaseline / uranium glass.  (Well, I'm not actually an expert in any sort of glass  :oops:  :roll:  :lol: )  Does anyone know who actually made them?  And I understand repros were made by somebody after the 1930's.  Anyone know by whom?

Hurry up and get your camera, Sue!   :shock:  :roll:

If it's the acorn and leaf chalice (a spooner really) I think you think it is, it's by Mosser Glass http://www.mosserglass.com/ Lovely things but lacking that old factor

And here is one http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7409750836

 :oops: Sorry for my delay in replying - the notification was over the page in my in-box.

My acorn is just an acorn. It has bent, sort of pointy, leafy feet, like the thorn vases. It might have had 3 at one time, but only has 2 now. It's big, for an acorn, and it is hollow, with a lip. You could get your pinkie tip in it. It's very sweet. :D

Sue, is it anything like any of these?
I couldn't quite tell if you meant the vase itself was acorn-shaped or if it had applied decorations...sorry if I'm barking up the wrong tree on this one!
Anyway, Victoriana buffs should enjoy these! :)

They all glow wonderfully green under U.V,despite their whiteness!
All of the white cased items with applied flowers & the like that I've got in my collection have uranium.It's odd that it was used to make white glass, but I'm not complaining! :D
In fact, when I first got a black light a few years ago, I was happily shining it around the house at all the obvious pieces of vaseline glass- & was very surprised to see all the white things that turned green! :shock:
I tried it on my glass button collection later & found that a lot of rather plain looking white buttons have a double life as glowing green ones!
Hours of fun! :lol:

Oh - I know I need that camera! Trouble is, I have this non-nagging policy. It works.... eventually.  :twisted:

I've been upstairs and got hold of my acorn, I can actually get my entire finger into it, but I've got quite small hands. It's not a vase, it may have been for spills or toothpicks, but the narrow opening leaves me thinking it is just a table decoration. The narrow opening is in the top of the nut.

LOL :lol: at Sue with a large glass acorn stuck on her finger.

I have a small collection of white uranium glass: two Victorian baskets, a Victorian bowl, a small Victorian vase, a piece of American depression glass (I did know the manufacturer but the only name that comes to me is Kerr-McGee and thats an oil company!) and a piece of souvenir ware  from Canada that might be Fenton custard glass,
