Hanging Cherries, Millersburg

This pattern is sometimes called Millersburg Cherries. The cherries "hang" into the middle of bowls and plates, toward the bottom in other shapes. Above left is a green 8-inch plate, the only one known in this color. It sold for $4,250 at a 1994 auction. On the right is a blue three-in-one sauce, a rare color for Millersburg though these sauces are not too hard to find. This one also sold in 1994--for $1,100. Hanging Cherries is also found with a hobnail pattern on the reverse.

Hanging Cherries is found in both a water pitcher and a milk pitcher (about 7 inches to top of spout). There are two versions of the milk pitcher. On the left is the one you'll more likely see; there are only two known in the version in which the sides drop straight down. Tumblers are also found in a variant, like the one on the left with the flared top, and are known in amethyst, green, and marigold. Some tumblers have bases ground when they were made.

The Hanging Cherries powder jar is rarely seen. This green one, even with an epoxy repair to the base, bought $500 at a 1994 auction. An example in marigold on milk glass, extremely rare for Millersburg, and with a small chip on the lid edge, sold in 2004 for $3,500. In 2006, the only known marigold example brought $4,500. In 2010, a green example brought $10,000 and another green example brought $2,800 in 2014. In 2017, a green example with rim roughness sold for $1,600 and another green example with a heat check in the base sold for $2,000.

In 2020 a powder jar in green with chips in the top rim of the jar sold for $1,000.
