Both of these pieces of custard glass are souvenirs of Harvey North Dakota. The color is a slightly opalescent yellow with a hint of green sometimes referred to as Ivorina Verde.
The first piece is a beautiful water goblet with an applied bead festoon. It is hand painted with a large pink flower, possibly a rose or peony and a spray of green foliage and small flower buds. Written across the top is; Harvey, N. Dak. The top edge of the glass is trimmed with gold. It measures about 6” high and the base measures about 3 ¼” in diameter. It is in very nice condition with minimal wear and no damage.
The second piece is a simple toothpick holder that looks like a double shot glass. The color of it is a little creamier than the goblet. It has a slight taper and the bottom has depressed panels. It too is hand painted with a rosy pink flower and green foliage and it reads; Souvenir Harvey, N.D. The top rim was also trimmed with gold but much of it is worn off. It measures about 2 ½” high, about 2 1/8” in diameter at the top and the base measures about 1 5/8” in diameter. It is in good condition with minor wear, particularly the gold as previously mentioned and no damage. It has a pink paint smudge which was done in the manufacturing.
I believe these are from the early 1900’s. The notice of death included with these pieces was inside the toothpick and it is believed these pieces belonged to Martha Borde. Priced and sold together.
