2 Amethyst Royal Purple Creamers
Riverside Glass Works circa 1897 - 1901
Croesus Pattern with Gold gilt Fans and Cs
Beautiful 6" Breakfast Table Creamer
and smaller 3" individual Creamer

These beautiful pieces were produced by Riverside Glass Works.
Made circa 1897 - 1901.
The designed fans and circle C's are gilt laded.
The golden gilt is also on the top saw tooth edge and the 3 fanned feet.
The back of the feet are stippled.
Each creamer has the ear-shaped, applied handle.
The pattern is called Croesus.
This color is gorgeous, the royal Purple Amethyst.
***************
The larger creamer, is the breakfast table creamer.
It is 5" to 6" tall at the spout.
NEAR MINT CONDITION
T is very, very little gilt loss on the top edge.
The are no cracks, chips, nicks or scratches.
Quite a beauty!
****************
The smaller creamer is equally as beautiful and rare.
It is 3 1/2" to 4" tall at the spout.
The three little feet are not stippled on the back side.
Now, for the really sad part.
As I was washing the piece, I noticed a crack.
It is just under the top of the handle, on the creamer body.
It is intact, but fragile.
The creamer has no other nicks, chips or scratches.
The small individual creamer is still a nice display piece
But as you know it has lost some of its value.
*****************
It is extremely difficult to capture the pea soup color,
the creamers fluoresce under black light,
so I hope you are able to see the old glass color change.
