Hubby's Aunt has downsized and had an auction last weekend. I wasn't able to go. After living in this area all my life, I have always wanted a piece of green town glass. My husband purchased these pieces for me. I am very excited. Greentown glass was made from 1894 to 1903 when the factory was destroyed by fire.
Probably the most recognizable pieces are the chocolate pieces created by the chemist Jacob Rosenthal.
The yellow is vaseline glass and some of her silver - she loved to entertain with fancy stuff. It was such a surprise when I came home and had these waiting for me.
