A Case of the Blues

There were three Blues shown in Gazette 3042ÿ

from left to right

Flemish Blue

French Blue

Celeste Blue

Good morning Alan,

Adding to the blues from the blog on Wednesday, thought an example would be Canterbury. Almost impossible to find! Might overlap into the purple/blue category.

Best Regards,

David W. Sherwood

From Rande Bly--My favorite Blue was not shown. It is the color Persian Blue. It is actually rarer than we may think. You will find it decorated with Bristol Yellow threading. If you ever find one with the threading in perfect condition it is a real treasure because most pieces are damaged. The combination of glass was unstable. It is easy to spot because of it's unique and pleasing shade of blue but if a piece is ever in question identification is simple. Put it under a black light and it will glow brightly because it contains uranium. Let's not forget Marina either! Five Blues in the Transparent Colored Crystals....that is of course unless you want to add Rita Blue as the sixth blue. Rita Blue was in the factory records only in shapes 6355 and 8315. The 8315 shapes were made for a special order for M.F. Co. (Marshall Field and Company). I understand there is controversy over the color Rita Blue but I believe it is untested as of yet to determine if it has it's own unique color formula.

1) Pictures today are of a short candlestick in Persian Blue,
