Gregg Wells gave me my first early American creamer (second from the left) which got me started on this early blown milk glass....Steve Atkinson has been throwing gasoline on the fire ever since...thanx Steve!

South Jersey or New England?

Here's a close up of the miniature creamer with the red threading, another Greg Wells find!

Hello Gary you forgot to paint the 3rd one in white like the rest of them[8|] Did you see that before you posted the picture[:eek:] ....how embarrassing a green 1830s rare pitcher thinking he can hob knob with the bright white ones[:mad:] It ruined the whole effect you were going for........ sheesh whats the hobby coming to.....Just kiddin Garrrrrrrr [:D] Outstanding Gary you do have an amazing collection Please show it more often then you do. I see the same hand making a couple of those back in the day. Maybe Jeff Noordsy could weigh in on these.I tell you what your 19th century assumption might be off on one. The middle one, it has a mid 1700s Stiegel like footing seen on many creamers attributed to his works. Thanks for posting them

Very funny Steve, you know I always use Charlie for all of my painting needs! It is really a moonstone looking kind of thing...a little left of border line but I still like
it and I call it milk glass so that settles that! The others are very fiery as you can see. The general consensus was that these were most likely from the Whitney Glass works, I guess anything is possible. The all seem to be the same but different. Ya know if you ever dragged yourself over here you could see it up close and personal like and judge for your self...hint hint!
