This three-part set of Moongleam consists of a 4 1/2-inch duck insert, 5 1/2-inch floral "block" and 11-inch-wide bowl. (1927-1933) When lower flower arrangements came into vogue during the late 1920s, something was needed to support the flowers ... thus the "block" to hold flowers in place. Bredehoft considers the #15 Duck to be one of the most interesting of several different blocks Heisey produced.
Elephant: Lavender Ice; 5 inches high; Donkey: Caramel Slag, 7 inches high. Elephant souvenir for HCA by Dalzell-Viking, 1993; Donkey by Imperial out of Heisey mold; 1969-1978
Collector Tom Files' explanation for why the donkey Heisey produced was "in almost caricature form," while their glass elephants were "artful, very graceful"... "The Heisey family members were staunch Republicans!"
Cobalt Blue (Stiegel): Tulip vase, 9 inches high; 1933-1937. #2 Madonna is rare. 11 inches high 1945-1952.
Fairacre cologne in Moongleam with silver overlay. Moongleam was probably the company's first pastel color. Usually the silver overlay on Heisey was done later by other companies.
This Yeoman nappy with floral cutting gets credit for starting the Files on their Heisey journey. 7 inches long, 5 1/2 inches wide; 1913-1957
Queen Ann 'sample' ice bucket; 7 inches high, 5 inches wide; 1938-1957. Files found 'sample' etched in 3 places on their ice bucket, "Evidently this piece was made for a salesman to show as he made his rounds."
