In the CSGA Facebook Group, Cheryl Dartt asked:
I have a question for this knowledgeable group. I have two fish table decorations (Shape #7064) that fit in a flower frog. One of them is “3D” and has the same molded decoration on both the front and the back, but the other one is just molded on the front side and has a flat back. This second one has a stem with a hemispherical cross-section that makes it difficult to display properly in a flower frog.
My questions — Why did they make these two different versions? How is the flat one meant to be used? Thanks in advance for any information or thoughts!

We held our first Carder Steuben Glass Association member event of the year on January 29, a virtual social gathering through Zoom. About 30 of our members joined in conversation and presented a “Show & Tell” of a favorite piece of glass. It was wonderful to share the joy of Steuben with others who have the same passion. If you missed this event, not to worry. We plan to host another event in the spring and hope you can join us!
