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.

Hi Toni, your glasses are definately recent mexican glass, I'd think the pitcher is too but i'm not positive about that one. :)

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.
