I came across the ad recently. It is still in a mailing tube in a closet. I never did frame it. However, I no longer have any pieces of Heisey with this etch. I never could find water goblets to match the two that I owned and I finally sold those as well.
These are still favoured pieces however. I either need to sell the ad or go on the hunt for new stems!

There are lots of online shops that sell old advertising. I’ve looked at ads on and off for years. But I came across this one recently. As I’ve said – I love this etch so I decided to buy this. I will frame it and put on my office wall, close to shelves of glass.

First Update to the original post August 24, 2014
I would have loved to make this ‘my etch’ but in the intervening years I have been enable to acquire any additional water goblets. I missed one on ebay a few weeks ago – forgot to check the bid – boy was I cross! I did pick up this little beauty recently.
This is Heisey’s #3380 Old Dominion blank in the Sahara colour. There is a one ounce cordial, a 2 1/2 ounce wine and a 3 ounce cocktail glass. I haven’t measured it yet, but I am guessing that it is the wine.
This is my first, hopefully not last, piece in the Sahara. Very pretty.
This still COULD be ‘my pattern’.

I wondered – could this be *My* etch – the one that I will collect? but, while I admire it, I don’t think this is *The* one. I do want to buy at least two more glasses though.
I have only ever had one other piece in Hawthorne. I actually prefer this colour to the pink Flamingo. I have never had, or seen in person, a piece in Alexandrite, so don’t know what that looks like. Photos show a pretty shade.
This little mint dish was found in the ‘wilds’ of Cambridge, Ontario. I always wonder why pieces end up where they do.
