Over the years I have amassed a little collection of Pie Crust pieces. I guess I have not thought to post the photos.
This one is decorated with Hughes’ Corn flower cutting. I have two of them! Not deliberately, but this is evidence of having too many pieces of glass that you forget what you have!

I don’t know what it is about these pieces that I find so appealing. Could be the peg legs, or the deceptively attractive banding. The designs are simple, yet quite appealing.
This silver overlay on this piece is in perfect condition. I haven’t been able to identify it, but it obviously has a daffodil theme going on.
This three part bowl/dish has a very dainty etch/engraving (I never know what to call these designs, best do some research). It has a real pretty look to it.

I was scrolling through the Gallery of the Elegant and Everyday Glass Forum looking to ID an etch I am going to post soon when I came across a very similar bowl (different etch). I was so pleased to see that my bowl is older than I thought – mid 1920s-1945. Very exciting to be able to identify a piece. I actually never thought I would.

I bought this little bowl sometime ago. It was 75 cents. I have to admit that I have it displayed in a dark corner of the basement. I’ve ignored it, in fact I hadn’t washed it in ages and was surprised when I did – I thought it had a yellowish tinge. Turns out it was dust!
When I REALLY looked at this piece I saw that it actually has some intriguing features. The feet and the banding (for the lack of a better word) make it very interesting.
The etch is pretty, although not spectacular, but the shape is very interesting. No idea which company made it.
I guess I should move it out of the basement.
