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

Replacements Glass Study Group - March 13, 2003 The Triad - Replacements Glass Study Group met March 13th with the topic being Green Glass. Over 80 objects were presented for sharing by the various members participating. Green glass ranged from Fenton jade of the 1930s to "Bristol" styled European jade of the late 1800s, from Westmoreland green dolphin compotes to Viking green Epic patterned divided serving plates from the 1950s, Steuben green cut to signed Moser with heavy gold and enamel. As usual, the variety of forms, places of origin, and shades of glass covered by the topic impressed all those in attendance. Several green glass kerosene lamps were shared. One of the lessons of the evening was looking at the bubbles in air trap glass forms. It was observed that Ericson Glass and Pairpoint Glass used crystal balls with air traps as bases, in stems, etc. and that forms were often similar. Pairpoint air traps bubbles were described as being arranged in vertical columns that spiraled or slightly swirled. Ericson bubbles were in straight, tidy vertical columns.
