COLUMN FLOWER Square Vase - 8.75 in. tall in Blue
 - one of these sold in
March 2005 for $275.

COLUMN FLOWER: Color of the one shown in the photo by Bob Smith, while visiting the Finland Glass Museum in 1997 is marigold. A blue example sold by Seeck Auctions in Wentzville, MO in April 1997 brought $700.
Marion Quinton-Baxendale, English author/researcher named this unusual square vase measuring 2 ¼?x 2¼?x 8?tall. The base glass color is cobalt blue, showing excellent iridescence, in her book.
Description  of the #5908 shown in the 1939 Catalogue offers no detail as to colors available in the pattern.
A beautiful example of this rare vase was included in the extensive vase collection belonging to Carol & Lee Moore of the Pacific Northwest during the early 1980s. This lovely square shape was not offered by any of the American producers of fine vases. A blue Column Flower sold in 2002 for $600 and a nice example sold at a Seeck Auction in 2005 for $275. Marigold is another known color in this scarce vase pattern.
Square Diamond is the name applied to this same vase as it appears in a Brockwitz catalog. The square design is quite similar to that of Regina's Star vase, produced by Brockwitz.
Dates of manufacture by Brockwitz  are not known.

  
This recently discovered 8  inch bowl  is known to have been made by Riihimaki. The pattern is called THE HUNTER.

THE HUNTER:  Following research by Glen and Steve Thistlewood who have written extensively about 搊ther than United States manufacturers of Carnival Glass? this recently discovered pattern has been appropriately named. Riihimaki made some of the most beautiful designs found in 揻oreign glass examples? Certainly, the detail illustrated in The Hunter design  is emphasized in marigold. More and more 揻oreign-made?carnival glass is appearing in United States auctions, and readily becoming quite desirable to collectors all over America.

FLASHING STAR Tumbler in Blue

FLASHING STAR: Recognition of the many lovely patterns found in carnival glass produced by manufacturers outside the United States has been apparent in eBay sales, and from more availability through carnival glass auctions in connection with Club activity. Extensive research performed by the Thistlewoods  has provided enhanced appeal.
This lovely marigold water set was sold at auction  in 2004. Vertical double grooves separate the designs of sixteen point stars. There is an incised eight point star on the ground base of pitcher and tumbler.  There are three panels of stars appearing on the tumblers, as well. The tumbler and water set were photographed while waiting to be sold. Examples in this pattern are quite rare. Blue and marigold are the known colors.

GARLAND & BOWS Compote - Riihimaki.


GARLAND and BOWS Bowl: The 10 ¼?collar base bowl has only been seen in marigold, thus far.

GARLAND and BOWS Compote: There are four (known) compotes in this lovely pattern already in collections. However, they all have the usual 揵owl?shaped top-quite large - (We show one such compote listed in the Meritorious Notables - Part 1 segment). 8 ¼?diameter bowl opening and stands 8?tall. The one shown in this Riihimaki segment appeared in an eBay sale offering in late 2004, having  a more open style, ruffled  bowl.  Some of these compotes have a clear stem and foot, while others have a marigold overspray. We wonder whether the pattern was manufactured in blue, as are  many other Riihimaki designs?
Since these compotes appear on eBay from time to time from the same seller in Argentina, we might suspect this to be a currently manufactured item?

FIREFLY CANDLESTICKS: Marigold is the only color found.

SUNKEN DAISY Rosebowl - 4.75 in. wide - Riihimaki

SUNKEN DAISY:  Quite a delightful design/pattern overall, it remains a seldom seen opportunity. The pattern is cut into the surface (called intaglio). The squared feet are distinctive, both in the rosebowl shape, as well as in the 9?and 5?bowl in this pattern, having straight sides. The pattern originates from Cambridge Glass in Ohio. (See the familiar pronged foot design used in Inverted Thistle pattern shown in Cambridge - Part 4.) The pattern is also known as Amerika. Eda and Riihimaki Glass manufacturers have had a hand in using this design. Colors known: Bowls - blue, marigold, purple and green. Rosebowl - blue marigold, lavender and purple.

Dean & Diane Fry - 09-07


Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed
by the renewing of your mind. (Romans 12:2)
In obedience to our Master, we must be willing to go against the flow of society, as we follow Jesus.
As we follow Him, our motives, values, and habits are bound to be different from those who are not Christians.
In the first century when the pagans were puzzled and convicted by the lifestyle of Christians, Peter wrote,
揟hey think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you.?FONT COLOR="#FFCCCC"> (I Peter 4:4).
When marching to the beat of a different drummer, of course we will be out of step with certain aspects of society!
It takes conviction, courage, and courtesy.
But with God's enabling grace we can be disturbingly different
Effectively different, as well!
