no sure answer from me, but perhaps it has to do with how the glass was molded/unmolded when it was made?? Hopefully a glass collector out there can answer you, because I'm curious, too!
Judy, I could be wrong but I think the indentation is called a Rum Well.
Ah ha, should have done a search first: I found this information and it appears to just be a result of manufacturing: http://www.jsonline.com/realestate/29225434.html
Well, well,Manufacturing, huh?I was hoping it was for pound cakes which have the hole in the center of the cake!LOVE the milk glass square cake--goes with my square tube pan in which I have been making my pound cakes.
Chia is right! I checked out the website link. Good ole Ralph and Terry Kovel! The dimple is part of the manufacturing process but it is called by some antique dealers a "brandy well." Thanks, Chia!!! I should have Googled it myself but I didn't know what to call it. How far would I have gotten with depression/hole? (((smile)))
Depression wouldn't have gotten you very far - I know, I tried :) It kept returning results for Depression Glass. I think it was "indent" that finally got me to a source.
I have no idea about the hole but LOVE that white milkglass!!! Beee u T FulL!!!
I wouldn't have know the answer to that one without doing research. Aren't computers nice when you want to find out something that you can't find any other way. I love the milk glass. Take care.
Hi again Judy, I just re-read my second comment and realized it could be read two ways. I wasn't saying that you should have done research (asking friends what they know is a good line of research).. I was saying it to myself since I was so quick to post my first comment without seeing if I could find any more to help you out. Hope you read it the way I meant it, and I didn't offend you. Sometimes I forget that I have a habit of talking in a clipped way and leaving out the little words that keep things clear. :(
I'm, glad to know someone found it because I couldn't think what to call it, either!! (pound cake sounds yummy, by the way!!)
I'm pretty sure I saw that white cake pedastal find a home while I was at Merchant Square yesterday!
Hey Miss Judy!It was so good seeing you on Saturday. I hope that you and Gail had a great time shopping. I found a few things, but I did really well at Goodwill. I found a Tracy Porter quilt for 9 bucks! Gosh I love a deal! :DHugs to you! I really enjoy reading your blog.xoxoNicolewww.gibbysgirl.com
