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.
A bottle marked Laxol and A J White New York
Lydia E Pinkhams Vegetable Compound.
A couple of ink wells, I assume. The one on the left is marked 2 oz.
Or I can put the bottle sideways, and then my cellphone is sideways, and it comes out right on here. lol
Hallenbeck & Messier, Albany NY. This one has a nice embossed deer head and bird on the...
Lol, I would have kept that for the name alone.
A bottle down in NYC area, J Lebkuchner, a bottle from The Duffy Malt Whiskey Company, Rochester NY, a Heinrichs & Shea, Albany NY, and a J Heffernan, Saratoga NY.
