Anchor Hocking (4)

Identification:  All my Anchor Hocking lids have a raised area on top that encompasses the 6 center holes. Lids by other manufacturers such as Co-Operative Flint may at first glance look similar, but on closer examination there is a recessed area on the bottom that encompasses the 6 center holes.

Westmoreland (20)

My Westmoreland Flower Frog Collection
Identification:  With the exception of the large disc No. 1857/7", all my Westmoreland flower frogs have an indented top edge and a bottom rim. The feet vary greatly:  tiny to large round feet, rectangular feet, or no feet at all.

There are other Westmoreland flower frogs that don't have a bottom rim (see catalogs, above), but I haven't found any. And while not all Westmoreland flower frogs have rectangular feet, most flower frogs that have rectangular feet are Westmoreland.

Also see How Glass Blocks Were Made, which features photos of a Westmoreland mould.
