We were at some convention a couple of years ago, and I was taking photos. This is one that I thought was neat. It is an Imperial Morning Glory funeral vase in purple. The flare at the top is interesting. To call this a funeral vase, it has to have a base diameter of five inches or a bit less. The height varies with how the vase was swung when made.
Conventions are fun because you get to see beautiful glass, buy that glass, and make great friends. Come join us in July for the ICGA convention in St. Louis. … See MoreSee Less
Happy first day of fall in the northern hemisphere. This Acorn bowl made by the Fenton Art Glass Company in the early 1900’s will give you a hint of fall. Can you tell what the base color of the piece is? You might be able to tell from the acorns in the middle of the bowl. Normally you will look at the collar base to see what color the actual glass is. The iridescence makes you want to think that it might be red, but it is not. This is a green Acorn bowl, which might be a bit harder to find than some of the other colors. This comes in a large range of colors, but it is generally found only in bowls with a very few plates known. The plates were shaped from the bowl mold when the glass was still malleable – perhaps a lunchbox special. … See MoreSee Less
Here is a beautiful ice green centerpiece bowl with the points straight up. Most of the time the points are pointed slightly toward the center of the bowl making this look like a giant rose bowl. It is Northwood’s Grape and Cable pattern which was their most popular and longest running pattern. This ice green color is not an easy one to find. There are several other colors that are known as well. Good luck finding a piece that you like to add to your collection. … See MoreSee Less
Billy WilsonI think that I read that Grape & Cable is the most searched pattern on Ebay. Followed by Fenton’s Orange Tree. 🙂
