Question about Christmas Fairy Lights

Post by ChuckL on Wed Jul 11, 2012 10:34 pm

Hello everyone -

I'm trying to determine if these two Christmas fairy lights are the real deal or reproductions. Can anyone help me out? I did find the PDF file on the main page, and the measurements of mine seem to match the ones listed for the Diamond Quilted lights.

Each is made from a 3-part mold, and you can feel the diamond pattern on the inside. The glass is full of bubbles. Each weighs about 4 ounces. I can't find a maker's mark on either one.

The purple one has a smooth but uneven rim, and is 3-5/8" high, 2.25" in diameter at the top rim, and approx 2.5" in diameter at the widest part near the base. The green one has a ground uneven rim, and is 3-3/8" high, 2.25" in diameter at the rim and approx 2.5" in diameter near the base.

I have several other photos. If another angle or detail will help, please let me know.





Thanks!
- Chuck

Chuck,

As you may know, this design (as well as other designs) are heavily reproduced. I quit buying them many years ago because of the uncertainty of their vintage. That said, they make for a nice "colored glass" display, but I would not buy them as an investment.
