Default Mystery Glass?? 😉

Hello! I've had these canes since before 2008 and am just now wanting to sell them...only I have no exact idea what they are. Shampoo/veiled? COE 95-96? Three are numbered..MP-11, MP-20 and MP-16 and they're all at least an inch in diameter. I would appreciate any input, thank you so much!

Interesting! Was there ever a mother of pearl line?

In my research here, there seemed to be a Mother of Pearl....but I cant find any pictures of the glass to corroborate.
And goodness knows, if I don't find it a good home, I'll be happy to keep it, lol!

I wonder if they aren't 'garage sale' glass from Double Helix back in the day.

Their test batches used to have some pretty hefty sized stubs from the first pull out of the crucible.

They look like Moonstone / Mother of Pearl glass, and most of them were 104. Early Double Helix glass was often lumpy with the amount of metal included, so that wouldn't be my guess for these.

One company did have a line they called Mother of Pearl, and the rods were larger and irregular with rings, like this. Can't remember the company, but it was more of a distributor than a glass manufacturer. CiM also made some moonstone glass, but I think that was later than 2008 and I don't think they ever made a yellow.

Does the dark blue rod have rings as well?

Thank you Phil for your reply. I have a feeling they are moonstone and yes the blue (all of them) has the rings as well Shelby. Thank you all for your help!

My guess Ornela Czech, they had a mother of pearl line.
And they had fat rods.
