1. Answer To Yesterday's Question About Erroneous Engraved Shape Numbers

a. That's hard to say. If one looks at the picture of Henry Geissler at his grinding machine a person can see the number of objects he has to work on. My guess that it would be easy to mistake a number and to try to correct such a minor error would ruin the piece. Imagine the mess on the base of Michael's vase from changing an 8 to a nine. I believe that there was not that amount of concern at the factory or by the purchasing public since most were probably not collectors at that time and pieces were purchased more for decorative purposes so the number was not as important as it might be viewed today.

b. The answer to Mike Krumme's question is yes others were mismarked. You had one person marking all pieces and mistakes were made when trying to keep up with what needed to be marked. Also the way the pieces had to be held to mark them sometimes had a number looking like another too. Beth Shaut

2. Diamond Quilting

Thought as long we were on the subject of quilted aurene I would share another unusual vase. Very early #223. Has great color for an early piece.
