Are these slags?

Recommended Posts

In the purple group, first photograph to the top right appears to be a purple slag.  Probably Akro, but I can't tell from here.  The rest of the purple and blue examples  appear to be transparent swirls...any number of manufacturers made these.  As Steph pointed out recently, about a dozen manufacturers in WV.  Getting certain IDs on these is tough...still lots of work to do on these.  Slags were made for extended periods of time and in the millions, most of those are Akro if machine made. There is value sometimes especially larger and in finer condition, and those with great pattern and construction. Some manufacturers are less common and more collectible such as CAC and Peltier.   Also colors are more collectible, such as lavender, orange, vaseline and teal which are far less common.

Most WV swirls were made from the 30's to the 50's.  

At least one company, Champion, stuck it out longer though.
