Waving a white flag since I've been counseled not to combine items in one thread, for one last time, I beg your indulgence.
Below, I've attached two views of the Root Beer's acorns in shaded sunlight + one view of the entire base in sunlight filtering through a window. Question: is Amber or amberine the correct descriptor for its colour? It appears more honey colored, to my eye. Base is 8 ½'' in height and 6'' in diameter. Ludwig Moser label.
When you click this photo a magnifying glass will appear, click-- and the photo will enlarge.

Thank you! NOW I ''get it'' and am able to visualize how the Misses Blue were made. As a bonus, I learned a new word: marver. Until I came to this forum last week, I knew nothing with any degree of confidence about antique glass(except when I was young that I was not allowed to touch it.). I find its history fascinating and the search for which maker attaches to what piece is a treasure hunt.
Search as I had earlier, I found zip about the ''how'' of the process.
Now, one by one, thanks to all in the Forum who have contributed, the puzzle pieces begin to fit into place.
As I wrote earlier, when the second MissBlue is back in my hands then I'll begin its own thread. I find that my photos, taken last week, of broken Ms. Blue's ground are not revelatory(insufficient resolution). I will take additional photos of her in the sun this week when I go to ''visit'' her in storage.
In the meanwhile, two differently angled views of the chip: these do not enlarge(I wonder why but I'm no computer whiz kid)http://www.kiowamoon.com/silver/kmsblue3.jpghttp://www.kiowamoon.com/silver/kmsblue4.jpg
I've prepared for everyone, as a thank you, my traditional holiday dessert. You will find at your place a Royal Crown Derby Imari plate on which rests a slice of great grandmother's English plum pudding (flames now extinguished) which is topped with a square of hard sauce which is topped with a warmed Brandy sauce. Cigars at the table are welcome.
