PLOCHMAN & HARRISON - Chicago - Fat Boy Sugar bottom.

FAT BOY Sugar Shaker:  This speaks for itself as an advertising element for Plochman & Harrison. No doubt “flashed” marigold.

MUSTARD JAR:  This smoke mustard jar is a “pride and joy” for Scott Beale! The metal top is trademarked, the base glass is smoke and the iridization on the honeycombed portion is quite nicely done.  The base design is similar to Daisy and Button.  Scott feels that it dates to the Victorian Era glassware. It is 3 ¼” tall, including top and has a 2 ½” base.

THREE-BANDED FLUTES Mug: Another example of the type glassware available in the years leading into the early 1940s. State Fairs are known to have sold them as souvenirs. Very likely, more than one manufacturer made them available.

ORANGE PEEL SHERBET:  Although the Orange Peel sherbet was originally produced in 1910, the original mould was altered in order to create this advertising result. Lance sent us these pictures in 2011, but gave no information about where he found the piece.  This is the first one we have seen. It would be nice to learn how long ago these were created.

BLOWN Vase with metal bracket:  Angela says she bought this in Mexico. We think it is within the realm of art glass, having been blown into the metal hanging bracket. She provided a photo of the base, revealing the fact that it is blown glass. We have not seen any other example of this type. and would appreciate hearing from any of our viewers, should they have information surrounding its origin.

Dean & Diane Fry….5/12

If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is,
Sitting at the right hand of God.  Set your mind on things above,
Not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth;
 fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience,
In which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.
But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy,
filthy language out of your mouth.
Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds,
and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him.
(Colossians 3:1-10)
