BANANA:  This is really “reaching” for the unusual. 7” long in a satin-type finish. Marigold is another color found in this shape. Uncertainty prevails as to “when” these pieces were manufactured.

MAIZE Cruets:  Nicely executed by Libbey Glass Co., they are lightly iridized in marigold with blue tone husk, and scarcely ever available. The original stopper is shown. We have seen another of these cruets with a clear glass stopper having no corn kernel design.

ELEPHANT BOOKENDS: No measurements were taken but the base is different from that of the purple elephant. These were pale marigold and might have been a result of after-market iridizing? We have not seen any other examples such as these. They were of larger proportions than the elephant described above.

MINIATURE ELEPHANT:  This purple glass elephant is nicely iridized all over, is 2 ¾” long x 1 ½” high, and stands on a platform 1 ¾” long x ¾” wide.  The legs are far apart on the left side of the elephant and close together on the right side. There is a circular portion of the base which appears to be a pontil; as if the piece was snapped off. Jerry & Carol Curtis found the piece in Oklahoma many years ago and have not seen/heard of another.

ROSEBOWL:  Janet Knechtel provided this rosebowl photo in hope that someone can provide a maker and pattern name. Should anyone have information surrounding this piece, we would be grateful for your input. The light marigold coloring speaks of an after-market application.

MARY GREGORY Flashed Vase:  Mary Gregory items have always been attractive to collectors. While this vase may be among newer production, since the “flashed appearance” and the decal indicate that, it is an interesting item. We hope you agree.

Dean & Diane Fry – 12/10
God speaks to those who are quiet before Him.
Oswald Chambers stated in My Utmost for His Highest—
“Jesus rarely comes where we expect Him: He appears where we least expect Him, and always in the most illogical situations.
The only way a worker can keep true to God is by being ready for the Lord’s surprise visits.”
On any ordinary day, the Lord may have a word of encouragement, guidance, or instruction for us, if we’re listening and ready to obey!
“I wonder what I did for God today:
How many times did I once pause and pray?
But I must find and serve Him in these ways,
For life is made of ordinary days.”—Macbeth
