Another pretty example, this time with hand painted details. I see in my book Westmoreland Glass: 1950-1984 by Lorraine Kovar, that this vase is item #37, but I don’t know if that is the author’s numbering or Westmoreland’s.
It is hard to see in such a small photo, but the roses, bows and foliage are the same with the minor differences resulting from different artisans doing the painting.

The sugar bowl is considered to be the ‘small’ bowl and stands 3 3/8 inches tall, without the lid. With the lid, it stands about 5 3/4 inches to the top of the finial.
It is marked with Westmoreland’s “WG” mark.
The Paneled Grape pieces must have been common as they are not difficult to locate.
It has been a long time since I have posted in this blog. Not from lack of buying new (old) pieces – just for lack of getting around to it. I still have pieces from a May trip to Florida, and a recent trip to the Boston to Albany area to post.
My husband was wandering through an antique store on his own recently and picked up this piece somewhere in New York State. He liked the colour and figured I would as well.
I believe this is line #760 and is considered a basket, but happy to be corrected.
