Purple rimmed glasses
« on: July 26, 2006, 08:44:51 PM »
I bought these glasses hoping it would match my jug, they didn't.  :roll:

The crackle glass jug (shown in a previous post) is a different colour green but the purple is the same.

They both have bubbles in them, though the bubbles on the jug seem to be more controlled. They all have a rough pontil and the glass is very thick.

Any clues please?

Thanks, Tony.

That manganise purple and cobalt blue are sure give aways along with the "bulky" technique.

I agree they are surely mexican or made to look like mexican glass.
