Nammlif & spirit bear, those are beautiful! If the suns shines tomorrow, I'll pull three out for a photo shoot. Nammlif,the great thing about this forum , the readers can see something, and have a ahh-ha moment, like I just did, and realize, I own one of those. And had no idea what it was!

nammlif, the forum is being updated, and this is what is causing this issue I believe. According to the email they sent out last night, these things should be cleaned up in the next week, but it all has to do with converting the site. They said they hoped to have most of the bugs worked out this weekend.

Last weeks jewel, this weeks post.

Some of the pics got lost in the transition, so I'll post some more. This is last weeks, finds after a soak and cleaning, beehives, Petticoats. and striped Whitehall Tatum.

Ever wonder what these jewels cost back in the day? This is from a 1902 Sears catalog and apparently, 100 single groove insulators would have, cost you the price of the catalog , you would have ordered them from! catalog.jpgIMG_3468b (Edited).jpgThat also gives us a good idea ,of what a glass workers salary was in 1902.
