NOVELTIES – Part 17
LION Paperweight: These red paperweights carry the Fenton oval logo. Size: 5” long x 2 ½” wide.
DOG ASHTRAY - Courtesy Jerry & Carol Curtis.
DOG ASHTRAY: Mrs. Hartung’s Book 6, published in 1975 suggests the color is tawny marigold, making the animal look similar to a lion. In reality, we think the dog is probably a Cocker Spaniel. This is a heavy piece of glass. The three cone-shaped holes are directly above three squared legs. The nose and chin on the dog are indented, while the rest of the design offers a raised surface. The ashtray is 5 ¾” diameter x 1 ½” high, with a rim of ¾”.
July 1914 Butler Bros. Catalog
CANOE - 6 in. long x 2.25 in. wide.
CANOE: The 1914 Butler ad verifies this canoe shape to be a toothpick holder. Several variations in design exist in these canoe shapes.
Flashed COVERED DUCK Courtesy Remmen Auctions.
COVERED DUCK: This type “candy dish” was popular during the Depression Era of the 1930s. Finish is a flashed marigold.
Souvenir of Langdon, N.D.
6.5 in. tall x 2 in. base, 3 in. top opening.
SOUVENIR Goblet: Flashed marigold or some similar technique as that used to create Marlin, TX results created many examples of Souvenir pieces such as this.
LADY BERKSHIRE Covered Military Hat powder jar.
Sold for $185. - Seeck Auction.
LADY BERKSHIRE Hat: Why would a glass hat be the selling feature for a container of bath powder? One guess: Through the 1940s, cigarette smoking was “the in-thing”! When the powder had been utilized………..woo-lah!...........an ashtray? Paden City Glass made the hat. It is 4 ½” from bill to back.
St. Clair INDIAN HEAD Toothpick. - 2.5 in. high. Produced for Club Souvenir.
SCGC 1964-69 O.J.O. (translates) O.J. Olsen.
INDIAN HEAD Toothpicks: St. Clair used these for Club Souvenir advertising on the base. The same toothpick was used in the 1960s for O. Joe Olsen; an early pioneer in carnival glass collecting.
8.5 in. SANTA CLAUS Container - by Rigolleau Glass in Argentina.
SANTA CLAUS Container: This appears to have required a screw-on lid. Mints or small candies would have fit nicely.
FISH HEAD Vase, 5.5 in. tall - blue.
Sold for $600.- 3-2009 Seeck Auction.
FISH HEAD: This may be a “one-of-a-kind”? We have not seen another. Should any viewer have knowledge of its function, or having seen more of these, we would appreciate hearing from you.
Salmon Pink Corvette by Boyd Glass. 3.75 in. long.
CORVETTE by Boyd: Other than use as a paperweight, we cannot feature another purpose??
Dean & Diane Fry, 7/2012
“Behold. The days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah --- not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt.
My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord.
But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord:
I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying,
‘Know the Lord’, for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord.
For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.” (Jeremiah 31:31-34)
