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.
CENTRAL GLASS CO.:
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).
DUNCAN & MILLER:
HORN OF PLENTY, pg. 157: The photo shown in black and

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.
GILLINDER & SONS:
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.

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
Current list of errors as of Jan. 5, 2009. List compiled from
Author's master reference copy.
