Need Help With Identification

Hello,

My name is Kathy and I am new to this board.  I recently inherited some glass after a death in my family, and I am looking for help with identification and value.  I tried to post the photos through the photo gallery, but even after following the prompts they would not post.

I have posted the pieces on www.myspace.com (thanks to the help of my teenage daughter)  When the page comes up click onto "pics" and the photos of the three items will come up.

All three belonged to my great grandmother.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much,
Kathy Edwards

Hello:

The clear pitcher was manufactured by the Riverside Glass Works of Wellsburg, WV.  They called this pattern "Jersey Lily Ware" and introduced it in 1883. There is a goodarticle on the pattern at:

The "amberina" pitcher and goblets are from the 1970s or 1980s but I don't know the pattern or maker.  Perhaps Indiana Glass but somebody will come along to clear that up.

Sid,

Thank you so much!  I loved the article on the Jersey Lily Ware.

Here are the photos that Kathy emailed me.
They were too large Kathy, so I have reduced them. (I think there is a 200kb limit for uploads)

Thanks Della!

Sid already identified the water pitcher (i did not include that picture), and has me on the right trail for the "Amberina".  I received an email regarding the blue piece that said it might possibly be "Mt. Washington in cased blue satin with thorn applied handles".  I have now searched the internet for Mt. Wahington and cased blue glass, but have not found a photo of this piece anywhere.  I did indeed find information on Mt. Washington and photos of the thorn applied handle, and they seem to match.  

I am still looking for help with this piece.

This is a great site!  My antique interests have always been jewelry, furniture, religous artifacts and porcelain.  However, I am truly learning some great history about glass through this process.  

Kathy
