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.
The label looks solid!...is there less alkiline in that soli? the label is well preserved.
Nice one bud

Was digging in a campground dump for Beer Cans when I found this nice Gem. LEON.
I'd guess it dates to around 1870's. I noticed anything & everything from Lomax Chicago seems pretty common. Even the Cobalt Blue Hutches which might be more common the the Detroit Norris Cobalt...
Thanks Daniel. LEON.
Yeah, This site is kinda screwed up. the pics were there at first & then later disappeared. I try adding them again. Let me know if you can see them now? LEON.
Thank you for the research. I particularly enjoyed reading about the Japanese bottle archaeology. I abstracted a few items from that PDF which address the keys to identifying of some of these...
