As we look to the New Year I want to first say a Thank You to my loyal followers! I hope you are learning a thing or two about some of the most truly unique antique and vintage items that are out there.
One of my specialties is putting together sets of very hard to find glassware. Sometimes it takes years to finally come up with a set of 8, 10 or 12 rare glassware. But once I do complete a set, it is such a great sense of accomplishment to put it up for sale and offer it up to someone who just doesn’t have the time to “curate”. I love thinking about how each glass lived a different life but then all of the sudden it gets to come back together with its counterparts (like a family reunion of sorts!).
One set I’ve been working on for a loooong time is by the ever popular and very much loved glass manufacturer, Hazel Atlas Glass Company founded in 1902 out of West Virginia. Hazel Atlas was a large producer of “Depression Glass” sets during the 1920s – 1950s. From milk, frosted and clear glass, and in all types of colors, you (or your Grandma) most likely have something by Hazel Atlas in your house right now. There are some great books to read up on Hazel Atlas if you have obtained a set and are wondering the value or just want to learn more.
Today I’m focusing on my collected set of Hazel Atlas Dyball.
I’m having a hard time letting this one go. However, it is a New Year and one of my resolutions is to not keep ALL of the things I love (just some of them). Hazel Atlas Dyball is on point with what is currently trending. The beautiful salmon pink color and pagoda pattern just screams, “Chinoisere Chic”. I can only imagine the endless possibilities this glassware would bring to any tablescape. Here I show it with a Japanese Lutsterware dinner plate, beautiful Majolica salad plate and highly collected Flow Blue tea cup saucer. By the way, I'm sure it breaks some table setting etiquette rules, but there is no shame in using beautiful tea cup saucers as small serving plates.
I was doing a happy dance when I finally was able to come up with a set of 12 and Ice Bucket. I hope this set goes off to someone who will love it as much as I do! If you are interested in purchasing you can shop these beauties here! Until next time ~GG
