BUSHEL BASKET- Eight Sided - Marigold
Eight-Sided BUSHEL BASKET in Ice Blue.
BUSHEL BASKET (round): Production spanned many years, from 1910 - the 1920s. If you are a collector who enjoys many different colors within a given pattern, your choices within this basket are many. The round version stands about 4 ¾” tall. Colors for the Round shape: amethyst, marigold, green, cobalt blue, white, ice green, ice blue, aqua, aqua opalescent, horehound, lavender, smoke, teal, lime green lime green opalescent, ice blue opalescent, sapphire blue, celeste blue and vaseline. Sapphire and vaseline are the rarest colors, with fewer than a dozen of each.
The (eight-sided) basket varies from 4” to 4 ¾”, depending upon the flare of the handles. Colors: amethyst, marigold, green, cobalt blue, lavender, white, ice blue, ice green, horehound, Renninger blue and aqua. The aqua baskets are the really rare ones in this shape.
Amethyst and green and marigold round baskets have been found with a “smoothed” area which connects handle to basket, lacking the usual “roped” effect. This same “smoothed handle” exists on some amethyst eight-sided baskets, as well.

FANCY Interior of FINE CUT & ROSES Rosebowl. IB
FINECUT & ROSES Candy Dish with FANCY Interior in Ice Blue.
FINECUT and ROSES: This favorite pattern among rosebowls is seen in Jefferson Glass Co. assortments in Butler Brothers catalogs from 1904-1907, then among Northwood assortments in the same catalogs in 1909. Among several moulds purchased by Harry Northwood from Jefferson in 1908, it remained in production for a number of years as a popular seller among their iridescent offerings. A footed rosebowl and a ruffled candy dish are the only shapes known. Examples found with the Fancy interior mould are exceptionally desirable. The Northwood trademark is not always present. Many of the feet are chipped, so look carefully.

GRAPE ARBOR Hat whimsey from Tumbler in Cobalt blue.
GRAPE ARBOR Tumbler Whimsey in Ice Green.
GRAPE ARBOR Tumbler Whimsey in White.
GRAPE ARBOR: Other than water sets, these ruffled hat shapes made from the tumbler mould. Marigold and cobalt blue are the most available colors. White is more difficult, with ice green examples being quite scarce.
Blue Opal PEACOCKS 9 in. Bowl.
PEACOCKS: The refrain: “When you’ve seen one Peacock, you’ve seen them all!” does not apply here. Neither cobalt blue nor powder blue, but (blue opal) best describes this unusual coloration. For a peacocks collector, this is a “must have”………….no doubt about that. In the days when a shovel full of this and a shovel full of that comprised the mix for a vat of glass, it depended upon the one with the shovel as to the outcome of color blend.
Other viable colors in the 8”-9” bowl in this pattern: amethyst, marigold, green, cobalt blue, white, ice blue, ice green, aqua opalescent, lavender, horehound, aqua, honey amber, smoke, ice blue opalescent, lime green opalescent, powder blue opalescent, pearlized custard, and one iridized blue slag confirmed.

Then one of the criminals who were hanged blasphemed Him,
saying, “If You are the Christ, save Yourself and us.”
But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, “Do you not even fear God,
seeing you are under the same condemnation?
And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds;
but this Man has done nothing wrong.”
Then he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”
And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly,
I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.” (Luke 23:39-43)
Two criminals who used violence to rob and possibly murder their victims were crucified with Jesus.
Scholars have speculated that they were revolutionaries and insurgents associated with Barabbas,
whom Pilate released instead of Jesus. Both mocked Jesus, but later, one of the robbers had a
change of heart upon hearing Jesus praying for forgiveness for His enemies.
