Westmoreland (?) Milkglass / Milkglass Lion on Nest / Basket

Animals in Glass, Lion, Milk glass, Milkglass

I have seen this piece online in the past.  It has been identified as Westmoreland, but I do no know if this is true.  If someone else does that would be great.  It is not signed, but has the number ‘3’ in the bottom of the base.

I only have the reference – Westoreland Glass 1950-1984 by Lorraine Kovar.  This piece is not represented.  No surprise as I think it was made earlier.

In any event it is a neat piece.  I like the cheeky expression on the lion’s face.  The paint is worn off but it obviously was decorated with dark brown or green in the past.

Whenever we cross into the U.S via the Thousand Islands Bridge we make a stop in Watertown, N.Y.  There are a couple antique shops there to visit.

We have been several times to Old Jail Antiques.  It really WAS a jail of some sort and the old cells hold stuff of all kinds.

It is somewhat of a challenge to hunt in this store as things are piled willy nilly, generally nothing is clean and often the lights aren’t working.

However sometimes you find items of beauty.  I once found the most beautiful Czech piece with gorgeous painting and cutting.

This time I found the pretty pieces with the Lotus Springtime etch that I have already posted and these pieces of Cambridge Glass.

These are from line 3122 with platinum bands along the base and rim.  There is a medium to wide optic.  I think the details on the stem are very attractive.
