I'm listing a few books that might help you, if you haven't already seen these. You should be able to request them through interlibrary loan at your local library if they are not available there. Our curatorial staff can assist with identification (although they do not do appraisals.) You can contact them through their online form (http://www.cmog.org/glass-questions).
You can also mail hard copies of photos to Curatorial Dept./ The Corning Museum of Glass/One Museum Way/ Corning, NY 14830.
They may be able to identify your glass or at least give you some possible firms to explore. I would be happy to send you a bibliography on Westmoreland Glass, if you are interested in further research on that piece.

The Corning Museum of Glass is currently closed to the public effective March 16 through April 22, 2020, as a precautionary measure for public health and safety. As a result, resources available to answer your questions are extremely limited. During this closure, you may be interested in searching our Ask a Glass Question FAQs or reviewing our Research Guides on various topics. We also highly recommend checking out The Corning Museum of Glass on YouTube for hours of artist demonstrations, lectures, and special events. Thank you for your patience.
