Replacements, Ltd.
Glass Study Group - Februrary 13, 2003

February 13, 2003 Glass Study GroupThe Triad - Replacements Glass study Group held it's regular monthly meeting on Thursday, Feb 13th at Replacements, LTD. The theme was candy boxes, candy dishes and things that hold candy in celebration of Valentines Day. 28 candy dishes and 21 other pieces of glass were brought by the 12 persons attending. The items varied from an elegant and heavy Rich Cut circa 1890 cut glass to a Teaberry Epic line 1960's Viking Glass candy dish. A wonderful selection of oil lamps in the Peanut pattern was on the table in seven different sizes from finger lamps to large library lamp. An unplanned perk was that many of the glass pieces were filled with chocolates and candy for sharing. The usual light refreshments were enjoyed as well as an amazing amount of Valentines candy.

One of the learning points of the evening was: The diverse manufacturers who made strikingly similar tall, footed and paneled pressed crystal candy dishes in very similar styles. Heisey, Westmoreland and a possible Dunbar glass example were shared. We were reminded that a successful form was often copied by many glass houses and distinguishing such similar forms today can be difficult.
