    I picked up this Westmoreland glass from an Estate Sale. I can't find it anywhere online. I don't have a book on Westmoreland so I hope someone can help me.
    The stem is hand affixed to the bowl instead of being one piece. The stem appear partially pressed if that makes sense, meaning the stem itself has a seam, but the top appears almost free formed. The bowl of the glass appears blown, but not sure. It has the Westmoreland label affixed to it and a grape design I can't find. The ring (band) appears lighter in the photo but is forest green in color.
    I have looked in every place I can think of and I can't find this pattern or the glass itself.
    The glass measures 6.125" tall and a 2.5" base. The stem itself is approx 2.25" and the widest part of the bowl is 2.375" x 2.125" across the mouth, so a slight tapering inward. It's not completely flat on the bottom , about .25" is sunken.
    Any wisdom that you could share would be so greatly appreciated.

    I concur with Kiko, you probably could be considered the expert on that piece, you've described it well, illustrated it well. You know all there is to know about it but it's name/number and date of production. Dead Serious, not a joke.

    I'm not an expert in anyway but tbh that doesn't look like westmoreland glass to me. Its easy to move a sticker... Im probably wrong but idk if you compare the shape and even the way the berries are painted... its just not westmoreland to me. Grapes were a popular westmoreland theme but they've always been raised or etched when I've seen them. The painted ones are usually on milk glass.

    That being said, I am probably wrong and this painting sorta looks like yours:

    I have 2 Westmoreland Glass reference books. One that includes their earlier items and one for their later items. Neither this wine glass, nor the decoration appears in either book. So I'm going with the idea that someone pasted a Westmoreland sticker on this glass, but it's not a WG product.

    However, I would definitely contact the collectors club as stated above to be sure that you have exhausted all searches. The CC members have seen it all. You could even refer them to this thread so you don't have to reiterate everything. Please let us know what you find out.

    Do you only have one glass with a sticker or do you have more?
