Off to Florida soon. We will be flying to Tampa and then driving along the Gulf Coast for a couple weeks or so. I just know that I am going to find some treasures!
I have long trolled the ‘net looking for a stem with the Chateau (#315) etch – 1933-1939. They don’t seem to come up too often. But I lucked into four of the water goblets (stem #6008) and had to have them. They were a little more expensive than I would normally pay, but worth the price.
They do not disappoint. They arrived in pristine condition as well. However…….as I was washing them, I snapped the stem off of the bowl of one. Very, very annoying. I didn’t realize that I am as strong (and careless) and I obviously am.
A search for a fourth stem will now be placed on the list of “things I am always looking for when I am out and about”.
I was trolling around Etsy when I came across these goblets. They were identified as Heisey pieces, without a pattern ID. It took a few minutes to determine that these glasses were etched in pattern #449 – Pompeii (blank #3389, Dusquesne).
This is Heisey’s Sahara (light yellow).
I can’t say that these are favourites – too formal for me – but I am very happy to have them, just for a look and see!
