Hi Elizabeth -

Sorry, I haven't found your pattern in any of my references, but note that similar engravings were in production around 1912-1920. It's a lovely set.

Hi, Paul - Smith made canary from ca. 1925-1931, primarily in the No. 88 Crackled (aka By Cracky) and No. 100 Lace (aka Romanesque) patterns.

I'm away from my books right now, but when I get home I'll see what I can find.

Would anyone know the pattern name of this Libbey Glass Pitcher and Tumbler set? Marked Libbey in single circle with a break between the connection of the tails of the "L" and "y". Thank you.

Yes, that's their version of canary. I'm away from my books, but can give you a little more information about the color in a couple of days when I get home.

Thanks Tom!

I know this a pretty low end item, but the color captivates me. Did Smith make other items in this color? Do you have an idea as to the date? Do we have any knowledge of who the Smith glass chemists were? Here is a photo of the fern bowl in sunlight showing the ghostly green glow.

Hi, Paul. Your fern bowl is definitely L. E. Smith. Smith did make this piece in an odd shade of canary, so that it probably what you have.

Pretty sure this is a #4 fern bowl from L.E. Smith. The color is the truly odd bit. Amber in color, but with sufficient uranium to make it go green in sunlight. How unusual is this? Is this a standard Smith color?

Hi, again, Laurie. Your glass is from the Tiffin Glass Company. The stemware is their No. 024 pattern and the jug is No. 194. The plate etching is Flanders. The pieces date from circa 1927-1934.

Hi,
I hope you can help me Identify the glassware I have inherited. Plus I want to reach out to one of your members who I met by chance in Chelsea Michigan and she live in Pennsylvania. She was looking to see if an antique store was open and I walked up soon after. I showed her my pictures and told me all about you! I'm struggling to find out what I have. I have no idea why the image is upside down! Sorry
