    I’m going out of order with “Denny’s Adventures in…Willis Wonderland” series as these things sit right next to the snack bowl published yesterday. https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2011/02/19/dennys-adventures-in-allee-willis-willis-wonderland-part-102-august-2010/

    I have many different pieces of the smoke glass sets shown here. I have more of the orange color than anything else but also have many pieces in yellow, lime green and baby blue. I’ve seen this stuff in red as well, which is gorgeous but I don’t have any of those. I have more bowls and glasses than anything and also have at least five pitchers, three different styles as well as some milk glasses.

    The fruit sitting in the bowl in photos two and three is called “pin fruit” and is very collectible. And not cheap. Made of hundreds of little pins stuck into glass beads that are stuck into the fruit.

    The fly sugar bowl is actually a honey bowl and it’s supposed to be a honeybee. Though I agree it looks more like a fly.
