Rose Pink Daisy and Button Tumble Up Hobbs?

Sorry that you're having problems with GlassGallery. I've checked the logfile and it's not showing any problems so I'm not sure why it isn't working for you. Normally the red X means that the image cannot be placed - usually as it's too big, but if you have resized it then we need to look elsewhere.

Could you e-mail me the photos please and I'll try uploading them from here and then I can see exactly what's happening with them. (E-mail address in button below).  Thanks!

Here they are. Sorry for the photo quality, but I'm hoping it will be enough for an ID or at least for a new direction in which to search. I haven't found a company that made Daisy & Button in this rose pink color. The bottle is still a little dirty inside, so I would look to the tumbler for the true color of the glass.

I have no idea who made this set, but I do know who didn't - Hobbs Brockunier.  Hobbs made a version of Daisy & Button in the mid 1880s long before this tumble up was produced.

Yes, I was just being hopeful about Hobbs. Pink seems like a later color in daisy & button. The only item I've seen in pink daisy & button, aside from a fenton shoe in a totally different shade of pink, is a dresser set, but it doesn't have the curtain-like decoration that mine has. At this time, I'm guessing this set is from the depression era--as late as the 1940s. I would be very surprised if it was made later than this. Can anyone rule out Brockowitz too? Or suggest who might be the maker?
