I buy Jadeite mugs here and there, then sell them as a lot. For some reason they seem to bring a better price that way. This color is very popular these days, so I am always on the lookout for it.
Lovely crystal pitcher that is heavy, heavy glass. Crystal is so-so as far as selling, yet I can never resist it because I love its sparkle.
A cute little Fenton clock in an iridescent blue-green color that seems to be fairly rare.
Okay, go ahead and laugh. Yes, it's a girdle, or corset, whatever you want to call it. And oddly, collectible. Steampunkers seem to use these for something although I have no idea what.
And my passion, Early American Pattern Glass. I am learning to control it; even though pieces of EAPG are over 100 years old, only certain collectors are interested in it and it takes a while to sell. This piece is from 1880's, made by the Hobbs glass company in Wheeling, WV. It's called Viking or Bearded Man. I am not certain the lid actually goes with the dish; it may have been originally on another piece but it fits this one well enough.
And last, a pretty crystal lighter made by Princess House with its original label. According to what I learned, this is a "gas" lighter. You fill it with fluid and the fumes from the fluid are what ignites the lighter when it is struck. Cool, huh?
