What is a grape and cable pattern in the amethyst color, water pitcher (perfect condition) worth?
-- Judy Zunkel (email@example.com), December 21, 1999
According to the "Official Price Guide to Glassware" by Mark Pickvet (second edition, 1998, House of Collectibles, Ballantine Publishing Group, 201 East 50th Street, New York, N.Y., 10022), the "Grape and Cable" pattern was made by the Fenton Glass Company and the Northwood Glass Company, the former creating substantially fewer pieces than the latter firm, thus yours is probably by Northwood. Pickvet lists an amethyst water pitcher at $500; this is, however, a '98 value. Get yours appraised, and good luck!
