Recommended for Ages 5 years and older  Vermont Country Milk of Shelburne Vermont opened its doors in November 1991 and began treating locals to farm-fresh milk. Founded by Jerry Glantz, a Manhattan lawyer and avid antique milk bottle collector, Vermont Country Milk distributes its quart and half-gallon bottles of 3.5-percent whole and lowfat 2-percent milk in Vermont's Chittenden and Washington counties.


They bottled milk and chocolate milk in green pyro bottles. They bottled egg nog in red pyro bottles.


The glass bottles did not last long and are a collectors’ item here in Vermont. I know they were in business in 1993 but do not know they ceased to exist. They represent a long and proud tradition and thus are sought out today.


The 7 1/4 inch tall green pyro milk bottle reads: Vermont Country Milk is a small dairy dedicated to bringing you the freshest, coldest premium quality milk.  


On one side of the milk bottle is a circular logo with the words Vermont Country Milk and Shelburne Vermont around the head of a dairy cow. 


The other side has the same image of a dairy cow with the words: Fresh, Premium Quality Milk from Vermont Dairy Farms.  16.9 fl. oz.. (1/2 litre)

Terry Crider started his glasswork in 1976. He is self taught. This studio glass artist has put out a limited amount of work over the past 39 years. He uses NO MOLDS and his only help has been his wife Donna. I had an email from Terry and Donna a few years ago stating that he doesn't think it would be fair to the collectors to make any of the same things again. They have decided, if they do make glass again, they are not going to make anything that they have made in the past. He made glass part time from 1988-2000. In 2005, he began again to produce a limited amount of glass. He's a great artist with VERY few early pieces out there. This toothpick is in mint condition and is signed Crider and dated 1987 on the base. 


This Crider 1987 amethyst base glass with applied threaded decoration is in a bulbous base shape. It's hard to imagine the amount of work that went into this beautiful, hand made toothpick holder. 


This little toothpick holder stands 2 inches high. It is a fantastic piece of American art glass! It is in perfect condition.  <b>We invite you to take a tour through Mayor Griffin's House with all its charm and exquisite details.

Murano midcentury green mica summers bowl:  


Made in Murano Italy during the 1950-1970 period, this large bowl is done in the sommerso technique meaning an interior layer of glass is "submersed" in another of glass. In this bowl, the inner layer is pink glass with green swirls and silver mica flakes. The outer layer is white. It measures 9" across from top to folded down rim and 8" wide. A great example of Italian Midcentury mastery of glass.  Bovano midcentury Green Flowers 4 rest ashtray:


Produced by the Bovano company of Cheshire CT between 1952-1964, this 6 1/2 inch wide square ashtray is in the same design as my previous post of the 15 inch "Red Flowers" plaque. I have named this stunning variation "Green Flowers" Abstract red flowers with orange centers. Abstract green flowers with gold centers. The back is counter enameled in black as well. I first saw this pattern in a 2004 issue of Modernism magazine. Bovano recently ceased production. This piece is available at Five Corners Antiques in Essex Junction Vermont. The back is counter enameled in black as well.  Bovano 9 inch Confetti & Jewel ashtray:


Made by placing small bits of colored glass and one larger chunk of colored glass on the gold ground before firing, the final result is a geometric abstract pattern I have named "Confetti & Jewel". Bovano of Cheshire CT made many Midcentury enamel items from 1952-1964 in these abstract designs before shifting their production to more realistic three dimensional stand alone sculptures and wall pieces. This great 9 inch dish has rests to use it as an ashtray. These days, one can use it as a catch-all or a candy dish.  Carl Radke 2015 Amber fumed purple with blue leaves and silver vines California Poppy Toothpick Holder:


This Carl Radke 2015 signed toothpick holder stands 1 15/16 inches tall. It is blown into a traditional 1880-1895 American Art Glass shape, that being a double gourd form. It is made of two layers: the inner amber glass color layer and an outer layer of clear glass onto which the orange flowers, silver vines and blue leaves of the CA Poppy pattern are placed. It is then iriidized by a fuming process to create it lustrous purple highlight finish. It is signed on the bottom "Carl Radke 15" and carries his Phoenix Studios silver paper label.


It is as of 9/15 one of only four made in this shape and finish. It is in excellent condition. $125 plus Priority Mail shipping from 05452.


Carl Radke has been blowing glass since 1970. He was one of a vanguard of young artists who participated in the Renaissance of American Art Glass in the early 1970s.


Originated by Tiffany in 1881 and popular during the early part of the 20th century, Lustre Art Glass had fallen out of favor about 1925, practically becoming a lost art. In the latter part of the 1960s, the art programs of several California universities began to rekindle an interest in glassblowing in general and in Silver Art Glass specifically. Several of the young artists became fascinated with the medium and were caught up by the challenge of rediscovering this complex and sophisticated art form.


Lustre Glass is a very specialized glassblowing medium because of the silver content in the glass. It has always been one of the most costly forms of glass to produce. In addition to the high cost of the raw materials used in Lustre Glass, the raw glass can only be maintained in the oven for a short time before the color, quality, and texture of the glass batch begins to degenerate. These two factors prevent this volatile studio glass from being mass-produced in a larger factory environment. Thus, the specific formulae and high raw material costs have kept the blowing of Silver Lustre Art Glass in the hands of a few skillful artisans as the glass maker must be chemist as well as craftsman to work successfully in this medium.


Carl Radke is one of only a few glassblowers out of the thousands in the United States who continues to work in this difficult and traditional glass. His skill with glass and glass decoration has allowed him to "play" with the medium and to develop his unique creations.

It is made of one layer then decorated: the inner red glass color layer over which a yellow Tut pattern is placed. It is then iriidized to create it lustrous finish.

Lustre Glass is a very specialized glassblowing medium because of the silver content in the glass. It has always been one of the most costly forms of glass to produce. In addition to the high cost of the raw materials used in Lustre Glass, the raw glass can only be maintained in the oven for a short time before the color, quality, and texture of the glass batch begins to degenerate. These two factors prevent this volatile studio glass from being mass-produced in a larger factory environment. Thus, the specific formulae and high raw material costs have kept the blowing of Silver Lustre Art Glass in the hands of a few skillful artisans as the glass maker must be chemist as well as craftsman to work successfully in this medium.


Carl Radke is one of only a few glassblowers out of the thousands in the United States who continues to work in this difficult and traditional glass. His skill with glass and glass decoration has allowed him to "play" with the medium and to develop his unique creations.  Carl Radke 2014 Red with a Yellow Tut Pattern Toothpick Holder:


This Carl Radke 2014 signed toothpick holder stands 2 inches tall but its overall width is a smaller size than later ones Carl did for me. It was one of the ones where he was trying to learn the form and get the right diameter. It is blown into a traditional 1880-1895 American Art Glass shape, that being a double gourd form but a wider one. It is made of one layer then decorated: the inner red glass color layer over which a yellow Tut pattern is placed. It is then iriidized to create it lustrous finish. It is signed on the bottom "Carl Radke 15" and carries his Phoenix Studios silver paper label. It was one of the original 36 prototypes Carl created for my display of his work at the 2015 40th Annual Convention of the NTHCS (National Toothpick Holder Collector’s Society).
