“THE LOST CHAPTERS”, the addendum to Vaseline Glass: Canary to Contemporary
Self-published, copyright 2004-2005, by David A. Peterson

TOY BUCKET, pg 28: The No. 2 BUCKET was documented that it did not have the word “Patented” around the bottom rim. Both versions exist and neither are a reproduction. The dimension was also listed as 2″ tall. Actual height is 2 5/8″.
MONKEY ON TREE STUMP, pg. 29 REPRODUCTION ALERT: AA Imports has reproduced this piece and it is fairly common in the marketplace. IF an original exists in vaseline, look for well-defined features on the face, and visible fingers and toes. The inside of the rim will have a sharp edge.

FISH CREAMER, pg. 137: This piece was also made in blue. If any Central Glass piece is found in amber, blue or vaseline, it was made in all three colors.
OWL PICKLE DISH: See comments under L.G. WRIGHT (below).

HORN OF PLENTY, pg. 157: The photo shown in black and white is not THREE FEATHERS and remains unidentified at this time. A correction and correct photo are shown in the addendum: THE LOST CHAPTERS, on pg. 16.

No. 2106/VOGUE boxes: The original text listed only one size known to exist. All three listed sizes have now been found in vaseline glass.

BUDDHA, pg. 169: The original text stated that the Gillinder Buddha came in two sizes: 6 1/2″ and 4 1/2″. The Cambridge Buddha was actually made in these sizes. The Gillinder Buddha was only made in a 5 1/2″ size. The Cambridge Buddha was made in uranium green and vaseline yellow-green during circa 1930’s. The Gillinder Buddha was made only in vaseline yellow-green in the 1930’s. None of the three are marked. Summit Glass made some of the large Cambridge versions during 1998-1999. The Gillinder has never been reproduced. Comparative photos are shown in LOST CHAPTERS on pg. 16 to show the differences between the Gillinder and Cambridge versions.

PAIRPOINT CORPORATION, pg. 200: The text lists a pattern that incorporates butterflies and spider-webs. That pattern has been identified as COLIAS. Color photo #1 in the center of the book also referred to this pattern as COLEUS and should have been listed as COLIAS.

L.G. WRIGHT GLASS COMPANY, pg. 213 (and color photo #894): The owl pickle dish shown in photo #894 is actually an original by Central Glass Company. An erronous comment in the LG Wright chapter mentioned that it has never been found in vaseline by Central Glass. The original is 8″ long from left ear measured to left tail feather. The Wright version (if it exists in vaseline), is 8 5/8″ in length by the same measurement.

#1: COLIAS is actual pattern name, not COLEUS

(Two corrections are needed in the early first edition [copyright 2004] and both have been corrected in the 2nd printing, copyright 2004-2005):

JOHN DERBYSHIRE, pg. 10: Tobacco Jar: This was actually made by Ker, Webb & Co., Manchester, England, and the diamond lozenge registration mark translates to an Rd. #296476. The design was registered on Jan. 3, 1873.

ODDS, ENDS & ETC!, pg. 42, bottom: The two BEER STEINS (CLICK FOR PHOTO) have been identified as being made by Glasfabrik BROCKWITZ AG (Limited Company) and are shown in an original Brockwitz catalog from 1928. The stein was labeled STAMMSEIDEL 1, which loosely translates to a mug with an attached lid. (catalog illustration provided by Siegmar Geiselberger and PRESSGLAS-KORRESPONDENZ). Glen and Stephen Thislewood also contributed information that the pattern is known as STAR & DRAPE to carnival glass collectors. For a long period of time, it was believed that Crown Glass/Australia made this pattern, as it was included in one of their catalogs from the 1930-‘s. The Brockwitz catalog pre-dates the Crown Catalog.

Page 113: Item #20 from page 35; Description says “A creamer, butter and spooner were also made.” Change butter to covered sugar.

    I own vaseline glass canary to contemporary can I purchase a updated price sheet as mine is from 2003

      Hi Cathy,
      The author has never updated the price sheet and to be honest, price sheets are seldom accurate. With the fluctuation in glass prices changing so rapidly, a price sheet / guide is out of date almost the day after it is printed.
      To get an idea of the value of something, I’d suggest checking eBay to see what the piece you are curious about might be selling for these days.
      Hope this helps?
      Regards, Tom
