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.
I have a glass flower frog, and this piece isn't one of them. It looks nothing like it. There's holes cut in my flower frog as if it was a pen/pencil holder.
Good stuff. Looks fun and interesting. And yes anything from 1800's is old! If some diggers only want bottles under 1850's I'd say they are beyond spoiled.
Also I brought home this Howdy Bottle made by D.O.C. and reinforced it with super glue. The bottom was ready to disintegrate.
I still am not sure if I'll keep it because already have a perfect...
Well now, can you please post some images of European and Asian crown lip bottles from your BC dumps. The ynetnews story is mildly interesting, but no crown lip bottles are evident in the images.
Here's some more broken ones, from yesterday.
A Farmer's Co-op Dairy Association from Connellsville, PA
1966 Sundrop Golden Girl soda made by Glenshaw.
1955 McKeesport, PA Coke
Actually yes I always find some to help me get over the broken ones. It's about a 50/50 thing. I'll post photos of those later.
Guys I know, it was hard to just leave them there. But I'm already running out of space for my intact bottles and can't display them all. Just have to pick and choose now.
