UV-Reactive Glass vs. Vaseline Glass.

Here is a photo of Depression Green, UV-reactive glass and also Vaseline Glass.  The tumbler, cup, and oval pin tray are Depression Green, and are definitely UV-reactive, but of course they are NOT Vaseline glass; see here for full explanation of the difference.  The bud vase is Custard Glass, which is also UV-reactive, and is creamy yellow, translucent and glossy.  The ruffled hat whimsy with the hand painting is Burmese (once upon a time called Peach Blow) which is also creamy yellow, but satin finished with a coral-pink edge; also UV-reactive, also NOT Vaseline Glass.  The pair of candle holders that you see far right ARE Vaseline Glass; matter of fact, they are Vaseline Opalescent, and even in this poor picture, the differences between the types of glass are obvious. 

SOLD Antique Milk Glass Syrup, Tree of Life AG106.

Comments: Wonderful old milk glass syrup pitcher or dispenser, however you like to call it. The pattern here is what I believe to be the Tree of Life pattern found in Carnival glass. A lot of the old Carnival patterns showed up in small amounts in Milk Glass, Custard Glass, Opalescent Glass and a few other venues as well. The pattern is often confused with Soda Gold, but the absence of stippling clarifies that it is not that pattern. The glass is free of chips or cracks; lovely condition! The metal dome top has some soft dents (meaning no crease) but not anything severe or distracting. The top is the spring-loaded variety with a thumb spot and it operates smoothly, snugly and still lines up properly. The metal top is not designed to be removed and it is tight with no slipping at all.

Antique Glass Carnival Vase, Imperial Ripple AG105.

Comments: While Imperial Glass's Ripple pattern vase in Carnival glass, or Taffeta glass, is simple enough to find, a great many of them have washed out color. This one doesn't suffer in that t way! The photos don't really convey the color well; in person, there are deep pinks and blues and purples in the iridizing and the color is strong over the whole piece, not gradually fading away as I've seen so often. There is residue in the bottom from use; this can be removed, but I would rather not take the chance of damaging the color on the inside of the vase. The residue is not visible when the vase is properly displayed. If you've thought about collecting the original 'Carnival' glass (1905-1930) this would be a great place to start!

Antique Glass Depression Green Cake Plate, Sunflower AG104.

Comments: I've photographed a bubble in the glass for you; some of my clients collect only pieces with bubbles, so wanted to please everyone here! No chips, no cracks, no knife marks; slight roughness along edge seam which is most likely a result of the edge not being effectively polished before it left the factory. I like the shape of the three 'feet' on this plate; so deco! Sunflower was not a large pattern in Depression glass; green and pink were the primary colors and not many different pieces are available. Get this one because it's UV reactive (glows in black light,) Depression Green, because it's a cake plate, because it's the Sunflower pattern, or just because it's beautiful!

Antique Custard Glass Vase, UV Reactive, Fenton? AG103.

Comments: This is a very pretty vase, sort of Hobstar & Arches pattern with gold trim. There is hand painting on one side of the bell of the vase showing the Alamo, proclaiming itself as a souvenir of San Antonio, TX. Turning the painting to the back will allow you to display the vase without seeing the painting, if you choose. The gold paint is rubbed off the high points of the ruffled top edge and some from the hobstars too, but this does not diminish the vase. It is UV-reactive custard glass, which means that it glows like crazy when exposed to black light. It is extremely similar to Fenton's Prayer Rug Vase in this same custard glass; it could BE Fenton, but the Hobstars make me more sure that it is not.

SOLD Antique Depression Glass Tumbler Pair, Iris & Herringbone AG102.

Comments: Here we have a pair of tumblers for you; Iris & Herringbone in the Crystal, which is more sought after than the iridized, or Marigold version. These two are in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks. They are original crystal, meaning that they don't have the fogginess of the irises created by running the Marigold pieces through a dishwasher over and over until the iridizing is removed.

 Antique Depression Glass Bowl, UV Reactive Green AG101.

Comments: This looks very much like a Cambridge piece, but as I have no book on that maker, you must understand that I am only guessing. It has a collar base, and a faint suggestion of vertical tapering panels. As you can see, it has a dramatically rolled out edge that serves to make it difficult to measure accurately. The inside diameter measurement, not including the rolled flange, is about 7 7/8", and from that point, the flange is about 1 3/8" more all around. From tabletop to the top edge, it is about 2 1/2", and about 2" from table top to the edge of the rolled flange. The two bottom pictures show the etching along the edge, which is filled with gilding or nutmeg staining. The gilding/staining is visible at some angles; invisible at others. The picture top right does not clearly state the floral etching, which is actually on the outside of the bowl. It appears to be a series of vines with leaves, and in the center of the design there is a pair of daisies. This design appears twice, with an inch or so of space between the ending of one and the other. Excellent condition, apart from a couple of very small scratches. This is a decorative bowl, most likely used for either flowers or fruit. It is UV reactive, which means that it glows when exposed to black light. Less scrupulous sellers will call it Vaseline, even though that is not correct.
