Another little piece of Spring Orchard (etch #545). This is the cocktail glass with a ‘trumpet’ or ‘corset’ shape.
The glass of this piece is very clear and particularly bright. I think the pattern of this reverse acid etch is quite clear in this shot.

This caught my eye online. Pretty etch composed of birds and flowers. I have tried to show the detail with this little close up.
The etch is Spring Orchard which was made after 1935. The Paden City company, from Paden City, West Virginia, closed in 1951.
I have seen a reference to a Cordial, Tilt Decanter in this line. I am guessing that this is what this piece is. It’s not a large piece – only stands 6 inches to the top of the handle and is 4 inches wide.
It is pretty.
