Millersburg Water Sets - Part 3

In the late 1980s, we met Lucille Lowe and visited with her while touring some Holmes, OH landmarks with Marie Capps, Ruth Schinestuhl, and Dick and Emma Tilton. Along with Emma Tilton, Lucille was one of the earliest carnival glass collectors, specializing in Millersburg Glass. One of her stories related in a 1987 Holmes County Farmer-Hub told of John Fenton's interest in cherries. He enjoyed the sweet Black heart cherries. There were several trees near the glass plant and when cherries were in season, he enjoyed the tasty morsels. From this interest, came the depiction of his favorite fruit on glass examples.

HANGING CHERRIES Water Sets: While these are rare, they do turn up on occasion. Colors are amethyst, green and marigold.
There are two different tumblers: one has flared sides and is 4” tall, 3” diameter, with a base diameter of 2”. Its bottom is not ground. This type tumbler is much more difficult to locate than the one having straight sides. The Owen's book on tumblers lists this one as a Variant. It measures 4” tall, with a 2 ¾” top diameter. The ground base measures 2 1/8” in diameter and has a many-rayed star. Both types of tumbler are found in amethyst, green and marigold.
Marigold water sets are somewhat more difficult to locate than amethyst and green.

MULTI - FRUITS and FLOWERS: Pitchers in this fruit pattern are extremely rare and some are damaged. Among the known examples, five have been reported in amethyst, one in green and a couple in marigold. There is one known amethyst pitcher with painted fruit. Emma Tilton owned this pitcher during her very early years of collecting. It surfaced and was on display at one of the conventions in the late 1980s. There are tumblers known in amethyst, green and marigold.

Dean & Diane Fry-12/08


My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,
knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach,
And it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting,
for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;
 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways….
Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.
But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.
Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin,
when it is full-grown, brings forth death.
Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of first-fruits of His creatures.  ~~~~ ( James 1:2-18)
