I can view them perfectly, but then my son has a 'My Space' account on this computer...maybe that's your stumbling block?  You have to have an account to view?  :?:

Kathy

It seems that some people can't view your photos  :(  Could you possibly have a look at this link...it'll tell you how to use our Gallery, and give you a better chance of getting an attribution for your items:

Hello All,

Just got back from dinner and I sent the photos to Della to see if she could post them on the Gallery.  I tried again earlier, but it wont allow my pictures to transfer from Photoshow.

Della - thanks for offering to help!

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:

http://www.eapglass.com/JerseyLily/JerseyLily.htm

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.

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
