–DO YA HAVE ONE OF THESE–
This is my understanding..Hocking owns Lancaster and Standard, when one of their plants burned in 1924, the cutting and etching for orders was transfered to this plant. I have read that all the Standard Cuttings have Female names…after Ladies who worked there.
This item is shown in The Encyclopedia of CG and calls this cut “Trudy”. I have a “Trudy” ad (HMW 2) and the cut is the same except it has a Flower and not the Hanging Balls. In Zastowney’s, Lancaster Glass, page 89, this cutting is called CASPER (I do not associate to a female name). Thus, it may be a Lancaster cutting…I no longer know…LOL.
Either way, this is a really nice Late Carnival/Art Deco era type item. In this case, it is a Vase. (I am also putting up a flat plate/compote with the same Wheel Cut).
EDITED with new Base Pix…(left the bad one up too). My base photo is off color wise, I am not the best camera operator…must be a white balance thing. I will take a better one later and edit.
