CORINTH vases: These are to be found with slightly flared openings, jack-in-the-pulpit and squatty types. The squatty versions can be as short as 4 ½” and peach opalescent examples are sometimes pinched in about half way up, creating a whimsey-type vase. Sizes of the taller vases range from 8” to 10” generally speaking, with the color categories much the same as found in bowl types. The JIP shape is rarely found in a “yellow” tone of base glass, as well. Amber, Amethyst, Aqua-teal, Green, Blue-opalescent, Peach-opalescent, Mgld./milk, and Moonstone are the colors found in this pattern. Base diameter: 3 ¼”.
CORINTH Vase with Plunger Base in Peach Opal. 15 ribs.
Courtesy Scott Beale.
CORINTH Vase/Plunger Base: Scott Beale is to be congratulated for his lovely peach opalescent example with the plunger base! As an educated guess: perhaps with the abundant production of this well-known pattern, a new mold was required? In order to simply expound on the success of the previous vases, Westmoreland decided to add a certain finesse’ by instigating the plunger base. No doubt it would attract a “new market”.
A second guess: The plunger base version was the first venture. If the base presented problems in removal from the mold, alteration to that mold was required in order to speed up production without mishaps?

Westmoreland STARS & STRIPES Hat -
3.75 in. wide x 2.5 in. high x 2.5 in. base diameter.
Westmoreland trademark on bottom of hat.
STARS & STRIPES Hat: Perhaps this was a Westmoreland contribution toward commemoration of the 1976 Bi-Centennial Celebration?
At a later point in time, Fenton Glass produced such a hat in red, white and blue, although not iridized. Frank M. Fenton always attended sales of outgoing glass manufacturers. The “mould room” at Fenton is a fabulously endowed storehouse of moulds from many previous glass producers now out of business. The vast number of beautiful moulds at the instant disposal of those “in charge” at the factory today, presents cause for “wonder” at the production of such as “paunchy bears” and whales, when an untold wealth of potential sits unused under their very roof!
What has happened to the admiration and desire for works of art and beauty in today’s buying world?
Dean & Diane Fry, 8-08
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female;
For you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed,
And heirs according to the promise.
