Milk Glass Reproductions with Red Glass Swirls

A new series of figural animal covered dishes is out in white milk glass with red glass swirls. They have embossed Westmoreland marks but are new pieces by Mosser Glass. There are seven different pieces. A lion, cat, rooster and rabbit are on McKee-type split rib bases (Fig. 1). A rooster, swan, and duck are on Greentown type basket-weave bases (Fig. 2). No old red streaked pieces of these shapes were ever made by McKee, Greentown or Westmoreland.
