Millersburg - Part 9

MORNING GLORY Tumbler - Marigold.

MORNING GLORY Tumbler:  You may view other examples in this pattern by clicking into Millersburg Water Sets - Part 2. Very few examples are known in any of the three known colors: amethyst, green and marigold. Only about ten sets are known overall. Pitchers are known to sell in the $30,000 range, with tumblers bringing more than $1,000 each.

Amethyst FLUTE
Flute vase in Amethyst.

FLUTE Vase:  While on the subject of rare: Only a couple of these rather large vases are known in amethyst and two in blue are on record. The base is about 4” in diameter. Seldom up for sale, the usual results are more than $2,000.

HOBSTAR & FEATHER Crystal Rosebowl.

Crystal HOBSTAR and FEATHER Rosebowl:  Many examples in a variety of shapes can be collected in crystal form. This pattern was produced prolifically in both crystal and iridized examples. In many cases, those who collect Millersburg, buy both crystal and iridized forms.

HEART shaped olive dish or bonbon:  While this grouping of dishes were advertised during the crystal production period, they are quite difficult to locate in the iridized version. We have seen a couple of them over the years in marigold. Marie McGee's Millersburg Glass Book shows a heart-shape and one of the diamond shapes in marigold. (Carnival collectors refer to these as a “bridge set).

HOBSTAR and FEATHER - One of the most popular designs, and available in several shapes, this was one of the earliest transitions from crystal to iridized production. All examples are of thick, heavy glass having deep color and great iridescence.

Dean & Diane Fry - 04/11

But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, long-suffering, love, perseverance, persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra------what persecutions I endured.  And out of them all, the Lord delivered me. Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.  But as for you, continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing  from whom you have learned them, and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
(2 Timothy 3:10-17)
