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.
