Notes on the Schmetterling vases
« on: January 11, 2010, 12:24:16 PM »
Schmetterlings

Do I have them all?  Well, I thought so at one time, but I now know that there are more than one version of some of the colours, and indeed there may well be more than one shade - there certainly is of the blue one.  

As I understand it, the all-over frosted ones are the earlier - 1930's - versions, and the part-frosted ones are later - 1960's.  I have an all-over frosted Amber (she can be seen on the front of this year's glass calendar - thank you, Anne! :D ) and an all-over frosted Uranium Green.  However, my Pink lady is part-frosted, and so is my (pale) Blue one!  So if I wanted to be obsessive (who, me? ;D ) I would need to get all-over frosted versions in Pink and Blue, and part-frosted Amber and Green, plus the dark Blue in both part and all-over frosted!   :o :spls:  And I don't even know if they were made in all those variations! :huh:  ::)

Got the pics thank you, Antoinette  :) 

Yes, your pink Schmetterling is the same as mine, being part-frosted.  She's a lovely lady, isn't she?  And yes, it was my pictures of the Schmetterlings in my conservatory which inspired you to seek for your own   ;D   

Good luck with collecting the rest!   ;) :D
