In the above photos one item is a reproduction.  Can you spot it?  It is the pitcher.  This pitcher was never made by Hazel Atlas in this colour and you can tell when they are grouped together that the pink is more orangy than the other  pink pieces which are genuine.  Most likely the pitcher was made in the 1990’s by an offshore company trying to cash in on the collectibility of depression glassware.   The  10″ berry bowl is by Hazel Atlas and the pattern is Royal Lace ca. 1930’s.  The sandwich plate is Cherry Blossom by Jeannette Glass Co. ca. 1930’s.  The cookie jar is by Federal Glass Co. ca 1930’s and the pattern is Mayfair Open Rose.  The pattern on the repro pitcher is called Florentine 2.

I found the sandwich plate and the berry bowl yesterday while out and about.  Both were in perfect condition with no chips or wear around the edges.

 

Jeannette Glass Co. Iris & Herringbone Vase

Manufactured by Jeannette Glass Co. during the depression, this is a lovely example of the Iris & Herringbone pattern on a 9″ high  milk glass vase, flashed in a jade colour on the outside.  This was rescued from a dump in an area where there are a lot of cottagers.  Fortunately a good friend of mine who lived in the area spotted it and knew that I would appreciate having it.  They are typically found in iridescent, clear or white milk glass and sometimes found in amberina as well.  Pink ones are rare but do exist.
