ive had this slaggish hobnail glass for about 30 years...I have shown it to some dealers over the years and some said 100% its a lightning rod ball and some said NOT!!!..Im new to this forum so thank you in advance for your help...Andy
That isn't a known pattern in lightning rod balls, so I'd say it's most likely a lamp part.
thank you for your help
Second vote for lamp part. Pretty piece of glass either way.
Beautiful hobnail piece of glass, regardless.
thank you for your replies...Andy
Based on the swirled colors, the shape, the hobnail pattern, and the rough ends, I'd estimate this to be from a 1960s table-lamp.
I got a Hobnail Tivoli Soda Bottle from the 1920's.
Is that better?
Yeah telling the difference between Japanese/Chinese crown tops and European crown tops is difficult, but I think it's only the ABM or later BIM ones which could be confused for...
In your heading you mentioned paper label bottle(s) but I didn't see any in the pictures provided. Do any of the bottles have paper labels? I am always interested in paper label bottles.
The glass on this vase is paper thin. It's been in my wife's family since the 1880's. I'm just amazed that it has survived.
So is it true that you should let them dry a month before trying to clean them?
In very good shape!
Pictures are back, and I'm glad they are! Nice digs.
The ground took care of it well. Sometimes the damage comes when trying to clean them off.
