I collect anything by Riverside Glass Works. My favorite pattern is Riverside Empress. Second priorities are Derby and Victoria. I do pick up other colors and patterns as they strike my fancy, however.
This glass is so beautiful that I want to share it with the world. What was inexpensive everyday tableware 100 years ago, is something rare and very special today. Collecting this glass makes me long for the beauty and craftmenship of the past. I am fortunate to be able to collect these pieces of history and enjoy them everyday.
