Re Louisa and your seeing a history of this lovely pattern at ddoty.com , I find no history, just a listing of pieces with prices and "A similar pattern made by Jeannette in the 1950s is called Floragold and is found in pitchers and tumblers." I have seen that Jeannette bought the Westmoreland Louisa molds and have never found proof, so if anyone has true documentation that happened, I'd like to see it.  What I'm looking for is an early edition of Florence's Depression Glass, maybe the 3rd book, where he shows a Louisa rose bowl and calls it Floragold, so if you have his books I'd appreciate that info.

Expertise

I can answer Depression glass and Early American Pattern Glass related questions. I can also answer general collectible, California Pottery, "vintage" and antique related questions. I love our history and how antique & "vintage" artifacts interacted in our lives.

Experience

I am an avid Depression Glass and Early American Pattern Glass collector. I have sold antiques and collectibles in an antique store and online. I love helping others and would be happy to help you identify the pattern and maker of your glassware. I am an avid 1940's & 1950's art pottery collector and have Heidi Schoop, Kay Finch and Brayton Pottery pieces in my own collection. You name it, I've probably collected it! If I don't know the answer, I certainly have a vast resource of other antique collectors who can help me out.
