anchor hocking sapphire blue bubble glass

i'm not a huge fan of transparent glass, but i do love anchor hocking's sapphire blue bubble glass. it is a beautiful see-through glass that has a hint of blue in it. the bubble pattern was made in the 1940s and looks like small circles on the outside of the piece. i love how the light "dances" on the table when the light hits it... so pretty. the bottoms are unmarked due to a lovely starburst pattern.

the bubble pattern also was produced in other colors, like milk glass, jadite, forest green and peach lustre.

below are a few photos of sapphire blue items in this pattern. i have a few of these pieces in my shop now. check them out here.

martha stewart living & glass

if you haven't already flipped through your august issue of martha stewart living, you're in for a treat. this issue has a fantastic spread on glass bottles & jars on pages 116 - 123. there are some beautiful shapes & colors of glass, so make sure you check that out (or click here to see a slide show).
and for those of you who have already received your september issue, take a look at page 117. the "ask martha" section has a great article on flint glass.
