Cranberry Glass – Part III

Here are a few pieces of vintage cranberry glass from my collection. They are all older pieces of art glass.

This tall opalescent vase is from the Victorian era.  I would venture to say it was most likely manufactured circa the 1890’s.  It could be older than that.  Old pieces like this are unmarked and I find are harder to date.
P0005860
The gold gilded cupid jar is also older and it is of the Mary Gregory type glass.  It is hand painted and unmarked.  It caught my eye because it was so detailed and it could possibly be Moser.  (I really would like to think it is…)  I got this piece for a steal!  And I do believe it to be an older piece of art glass and not a reproduction.


This cranberry opalescent toothpick holder  is made in the Ribbed Opal Lattice Pattern. It was most likely manufactured circa 1888, by Northwood.   Pieced like this one make me wonder how it was made with the pattern so perfect.  It amazes me.

The ruffled bottom tells me it is from the Victorian era.  The bottom of this vase has a pontil in the center on the bottom.  I learned early on it is a mark on hand blown glass.  This mark is where the glass was broken off of the pontil after being blown.

I added some of my vintage celluloid and shell floral earrings to accent this glass display.

The cupid jar has cupid painted on both sides.  You can see it in this picture below.  It is one of my favorite finds.
