Florentine #2 Crystal
Florentine #2, also known as Poppy #2, was made by
Haxel Atlas from 1932 to 1935. There seems to be a lot of confusion between
Florentine #1 and Florentine #2. It's really quite easy to distinguish them.
In Florentine #2 all edges are smooth and rounded whether it's a plate or the foot of a
cup or the edge of a bowl. In Florentine #1 the plates are squared and have ruffled
corners. The bowls are also squared and have a rim with ruffled corners. The
feet on cups, sugars, creamers, salt and pepper shakers, sherbets, footed tumblers are all
ruffled. The pattern is the same on both, it's just the shape that's
different. Florentine #2 was made in green, crystal, yellow, pink and cobalt
blue. There aren't very many pieces in the pink and only a couple in the cobalt blue.
The books tend to place the prices for the crystal at the same level as the green
but we have found that the green is far more desirable, harder to find and priced
considerably higher in the real world. (We are sorry but we cannot email photos of
each and every piece of glass for sale. If you need to see a picture of an item to
know what it looks like we highly recommend The Collector's Encyclopedia of Depression
Glass by Gene Florence.)
