Lucky to have come across this on Facebook Marketplace. Just a quick call to my son who picked it up for me. Had to wait until two visit (forgot to pick it up the first time) and was happy to bring it home to display with my other coloured items with Corn Flower.
I visited the Hamilton Antique Mall for the first time last month. It is a great place to visit. Four floors, clean and lots of variety. The visit was serendipitous. A lady on one of my Facebook groups was advertising a sale in her shop. I decided to visit. Bought this piece and two amazing Heisey pieces in zircon.
I saw this piece, tucked away in a back corner of a shelf, and was intrigued. When I pulled it out, I was very pleasantly thrilled.
I have put it up for sale in my Etsy shop, but if it doesn’t sell for a long time I won’t be disappointed. It looks lovely in my living room cabinet. It sparkles when the sun shines on it.
It’s hard to see that this piece is yellow.
I was so happy to find this on our local Facebook Marketplace. I recognized the cutting as Hughes’ Corn Flower but I didn’t recognize the line.
I posted an ID request on the Vintage Glass Identification group on Facebook. The line was IDed very quickly as Heisey’s Empress line. I should have known that!
This is the bottom of the lemon dish in Heisey Sahara (yellow). Don’t know if I will ever find the lid, but who cares? It’s a gorgeous little piece. I have started a collection of Corn Flower in coloured glass. So far my collection is limited to pink, amber, and red/clear. I am sorry that I have sold the pieces that I used to have in Heisey in Hawthorne.
