Any help will be greatly appreciated, mark, age.
I'm trying to identify this etched stemware. It has a bulbous stem and a round, flared bowl with a wide straight optic. The etch is tiny flowers in a swag with ribbons and bows. I've found a blog that identified them as Maryland Glass. The R site calls them UNK412. I don't have a book on Maryland Glass and know nothing about it.
Also, I have a second question. I seem to have 2 sets that are nearly identical. The etch and glass look the same at first glance. But side by side, there are slight differences, even though the heighth on both is 6 3/8". One glass is thinner and holds 10 ounces, the other has a slightly heavier glass and holds 11 ounces. Would you guess these are by the same manufacturer, but different years?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
I found this and thought it was so pretty, but am at a loss as to what it is. I thought maybe a cigarette jar but the bottom is not flat. Not practical for candy, too narrow. 9.5 inches tall made of heavy glass crystal (?) with gold leaf (?) trim. It's heavy! It's fancy! It's a mystery!!
Any help with dates, materials, key words or just what the heck this thing is would be much appreciated.
Sorry for these dang sideways photos
I recently acquired this covered dish with an art glass bird finial. The style of the bird looks a lot like the finial on crystal perfume bottles made by the Pairpoint Glass Company and designed by Robert Gunderson. However, the bird on my piece is not quite as detailed and the ball it sits on is not as well formed. Also, I'm not aware that Pairpoint made covered dishes like this one.
I'm guessing this covered dish (candy dish or trinket container) is a knockoff of the Gunderson design. The piece measures about 12 1/4" to the top of the bird's tail and the dish portion measures approximately 6 1/2" wide.
Does anyone know who made this piece? Thanks in advance!
I have a 3.75" tall cut glass bottle with a sterling lid and a natuaral fiber brush. It may be crystal because the bottom is very smooth and clear. I can find a lot of bottles with silver lids, but nothing with a brush. Nothing with the glass cut in this pattern too. The lid is marked sterling with either E.I.R or E.L.R after that. I'm hoping someone can help with that too. Thanks in advance.
