On clear glass baskets can someone tell me if the star shape on the bottom means anything?  Thanks.

If it's on a pressed glass item, it would simply be the design that is on the base plate of the "mould". Many pressed glass pieces have a star on the base. If you want to post a photo we might be able to comment more. (Instructions for posting pics are in a sticky thread at the top of the board).

Thanks Glen.  Can anyone recomend somewhere to go and try to find out values on these and where to try and sell them?  Parents are downsizing after hurricane and have several in different sizes and with different designs (put a few on ebay but didn't get any bids)  :oops:  .  Thanks.  Carolyn
