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.Imperial Pie Crust relish dish (2)

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.


Original post – November 23, 2012:

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.
