Jeannette Glass Green Candlestick Holder – No. 97


, , , ,

I can’t recall where I picked this candlestick up.  The colour is what caught my eye.  It is a pretty, deep green.  Not emerald, not lime, but some bright shade in between.

When I first bought it I only had one candlestick reference book.  But I was inspired to add to my single collection and have since acquired four others.  I highly recommend the 3 volumes of the ‘Glass Candlestick Book’ series by Tom Felt, and Elaine and Rich Stoer.

I find it challenging to identify these columnar candlesticks.  There are so many variations.  In fact in the Felt et al. book lookalikes for this piece are identified as having been made by Heisey, Lancaster and Westmoreland.

However I have been am confident that this is Jeannette Glass and was part of their console set #26-97.

Hazel Atlas Tumblers – Royal Lace – Pretty in Pink


, ,

Sometimes glass identification is just a case of serendipity.  I picked up these two tumblers awhile back and had no luck identifying them.  I do not have alot of Depression glass resources, but turned to Warman and couldn’t find the pattern.

One day I was looking at something online and thought, “Hmmmm….this looks familiar!”  Luckily the tumblers were on a shelf right above my head, as opposed to being packed away and sure enough they were the same.  Pulled out my Warman again and sure enough there they were.

The pattern is called Royal Lace and is comprised of delicate flowers and medallions.

This is a piece of Depression era glass, with a manufacturing date range of 1934 – 1941.

Hobbs, Brockunier & Company – Covered Dish – Pattern #76 – Viking / Centennial / Man with Beard


, , , , , ,

This covered dish was manufactured by Hobbs, Brockunier & Company of Wheeling, West Virginia, sometime in the 1800s. The pattern was introduced in 1876.

This is pattern no. 76 and it has a number of more commonly known aliases: Hobbs’ Centennial, Viking, Bearded Head, Bearded Prophet, and Old Man of the Mountain(s).

The piece stands approximately 6 1/4 inches from the table top to the top of the helmet. The diameter of the opening is 5 inches. I don’t know if this is a comport/compote, butter dish or cheese dish.

I gather from my handy dandy book – American Pattern Glass Table Sets by Cathy and Gene Florence – that pieces in this pattern include a butter dish, sugar with lid, creamer, spooner and celery vase.

The finial has the face on both sides and the feet are also decorated with the face.  Pretty neat piece!
