Talk about something that you don’t see often is a Wisteria water set. There are only two colors that the water sets are found – white and ice blue. Tumblers are also found in ice green, lavender, lime green besides white and ice blue. If you see either the pitcher or the tumbler, you have a great opportunity to appreciate something that is seen so rarely. To my knowledge, this pattern was not made in any other shapes than the water set pieces or whimseys made from the pieces. There is a vase made from the pitcher mold and a bank made by pinching together the top of a tumbler. This set was made by Northwood, so therefore should be marked with their N mark.
You will have the opportunity to bid on this set at the ICGA convention auction at the Crowne Plaza Airport in St. Louis to conclude our convention, July 12 – 15, 2017. Come join us and see other beautiful pieces both in the hotel rooms or at the auction. … See MoreSee Less

This blue Panther centerpiece bowl is quite an uncommon piece. It started out as a bowl with straight sides, but when it was still hot, a finisher took a wooden paddle and flattened it out as it was spun around so the finisher could get it flattened, and then probably rolled up the outside edge a slight bit. This Panther bowl is found with a Butterfly and Berry exterior. It was made by the Fenton Art Glass Company early in the 1900’s. This one exhibits fantastic iridescence, and will be at the ICGA convention auction on July 15, 2017 at the Crowne Plaza Airport hotel in St. Louis, MO. Come join us for the convention from July 12 – 15. We would love to have you join us. … See MoreSee Less

I believe this is a beautiful ice blue Embroidered Mums bowl that will be offered at the ICGA convention auction this summer on July 15, 2017.
As I was looking at this photo, I noticed that there is a Greek Key pattern in the background. I wonder if the Greek Key pattern was made first and then the mold was retooled later to make the Embroidered Mums pattern. Any thoughts on that???
At any rate, this is a very pretty piece of carnival glass and it can be yours if the price is right for you. … See MoreSee Less
