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.
Here's a complete jar
Great looking bottle.
Recent vacant lot finds.
Zimmer's Pharmacy (couldn't find anything on this one in Philly).
Sadly the base has 2 heel cracks.
Whitall Tatum base mark: WT & Co / Patent Jan 24 88 / USA
Found this Victorian era doll head the other day. Anyone know what the backmark means? All Google's been able to tell me is that it's German and dates betw 1860–1890. Any additional info welcome.
Yes I can see how it has that look. I wish I had found a whole set of them.
I'm up in Montreal these days, definitely a bit far from Hamilton. Our bottle show is coming up in a couple weeks and I'll try to make it to that one. And yes please post pictures of what you've...
Saw it this morning. Nice bottle. It seems to be off to a good start. Hope it does well.
