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.

I have 79 Degenhart owls, with only two pairs in duplicate colors. All are in perfect condition. I wish to sell them in their entirety as one lot. Anyone interested contact at the email shown or text to 330 604 0535. Thank you.

Hi, Elle. I am not aware that Degenhart ever made the owls with rhinestone eyes, so unless the ones you have found have a Degenhart mark, I would assume them to be Westmoreland. Westmoreland did not start making their glass until around the 1970s, so owls made earlier than this might not be marked.

I am wondering if there are any Degenhart collectors around who may be able to help me. I collect the Degenhart wise old owl (owl on books) figurines. I have been collecting them for about 15 years, unfortunately I haven't been to the museum to see the owls in person. I have looked at many photos of the collection online and in the Gene Florence Degengart Glass and Paperweights book. I have never seen in those photos an owl with rhinestone eyes. I know that many of the Westmoreland owls do have eyes, but they also have the Westmoreland marking on top of the books. I recently saw for sale some Degenhart owls with colored rhinestone eyes. Does anyone know if this was something that was actually done?

Tom: My piece, referenced in #73 has been positively identified as Fostoria. Part of their Decorator Series. The identifier had an ad or catalogue page.

In reference to the Star Trek vase, the resemblance to the Fenton vase certainly is marked. But several readers sent me pictures of Kralik vases with the same "definite shoulders" as on the Fenton vase. I'm not an expert in Czech glass, but I'm told that what is uniquely Kralik about the vase in the magazine is the pattern of lines with which it it decorated. This will make an intriguing update for the next issue of AAG. Thanks for the input.

Rose Brown. There were a number of West Virginia companies who made similar figurines. If you could send a picture of the label, even if it is unreadable, the shape might help me narrow down choice to the correct one.

I am Hoping you can help me identify the swan that I recently purchased. I can’t read the label to identify the glass company in W Virginia that made it. Can you help?
