I am looking for some information on these glasses. They are 8 inches high, were a gift in the mid to late 50s to a lady. She used them for ice cream

Hi, Becky. The decoration on your plate is a cutting. It is not easy to identify cuttings in this style, since it is what would generically be called a laurel motif and versions of this cutting were done by many decorating companies.

This is a Cambridge glass Decagon blank that another company has etched a design on. Would like to know the company who did the design and what the design is called. Does anybody have any ideas?

I think the piece is desirable, but whether it is rare or not, I really can't say. Because we are a non-profit organization, IRS regulations prohibit us from giving values. You might be able to check past sales on eBay (if there are any) to give you an idea of what it is worth.

Thank you for your information. I was having a hard time finding who made the blank. I haven’t seen much of this pattern for sale. Is it that rare? Estimated value? My customer is wanting to find a new home for this platter. Any suggestions as to where to start letting people know that it’s available?

Becky J, I believe you are correct that this is Lotus No. 902. The blank is the Central Glass Works No. 2002 line from the 1930s.

I’m trying to find some more information on this 15”(handle to handle)x10” oblong platter. I believe it is Lotus #902, Gothic Plantagenet later named Parson by Hazel Weatherman. info@pendletonfurniturelady.com Thanks for helping me.

I don't think this looks like a Pilgrim shape. The way the handle fits at the top is not typical of Pilgrim, nor is the blown stopper. I think this is probably Bohemian, late 1800s or early 1900s, but that's a guess on my part. At any rate, it's a lovely piece.

Okay. The cranberry Mary Gregory cruet is a very large, would hold maybe 2 c, 9 1/2" with the stopper. Ribbed handle is so perfectly made. Stopper has teardrop inside. Rough cut pontil very much like Pilgrim. Someone has inventoried it with "CTYY". Ribbed optic. Gold around the foot.

Hi, Katie. It would be helpful to see a picture. I'm not aware that Pilgrim ever did any Mary Gregory type decorations, but may seeing the cruet would help me know whether it is possible.

Hi, Does anyone know if Pilgrim decorated with the Mary Gregory decor? I picked up a cruet and it sure looks like Pilgrim cranberry glass complete with cut pontil scar.
Thanks much.
