Green Console Bowl with Hughes Green Corn Flower / Cornflower Cutting

I was very surprised to walk into the local St. Vincent de Paul shop to find this beautiful console bowl with the Corn Flower cutting.  I have never seen, in the wild, a piece cut with Corn Flower in any colour other than pink, hawthorne (Heisey) or the pilseners with the red bases.  Definitely never the green.

I don’t know the glass maker.   A photo of this piece shows up in Walter T. Lemiski’s book Elegant Glass with Corn Flower but does not indicate the provenance.

Very pretty.

I have no idea why this etch – #429 – is named “Zodiac”.  It doesn’t appear to have any of the commonly known signs of the zodiac – no lions, archers or water bearers, etc.

I don’t consider it to be pretty, but it is of course interesting. According to Ream, Bredehoft and Bredehoft in Encyclopedia of Heisey Glassware: volume one, this plate etch was introduced circa 1919 and discontinued by 1928.

Over the years I have wavered between thinking that I preferred Heisey’s stems to Cambridge’s or vice versa.  In the end I tend to feel compelled to pick up stems by Heisey.

I have owned a few on the Wabash blank, but never this etch – #166.

According to Ream, Bredehoft and Bredehoft in Encyclopedia of Heisey Glassware: volume one, this pantograph etch was introduced circa 1920 and discontinued by 1937.

It was difficult to capture the design effectively, but it is very pretty.
