Solid Glass Canes (8564)

Solid glass cane in a rich dark brown with applied white pin stripes. I donít know why I kept this one of all the ones Iíve had, but it did prompt the question of, ď What is the order for the rarity of colors in solid glass canes. I donít think I could do that. I hope a glass cane collector will give us more information. New glass solid canes are being blown in Indiana, I havenít seen any hollow ones. To me itís obvious that they are new, yet I see them in a lot of antique shops, not marked as new. They are bright and garish colors that to me are ugly.
I have never seen an antique glass cane I didn't like.
Glass canes were called whimsyís, made by the skilled glass blowers of the Victorian period. They were in powerful unions as they were considered to be of the highest of the skilled trades. At the end of the day they were given the glass left in the batch of the glory hole. They would make gifts for family and friends, including canes. They also made them for themselves as it was a symbol of their craft when they walked in parades with the other men in their union.
