Vaseline Glass -

Dave Osburn of Osburn Modern Glass in Milton makes a version of the Vaseline Glass you are seeking. Dave began his career in 73 at Blenko Glass, in 2006 he left to open Osburn Glass (about 2 miles up the road from Blenko Glass - the shop formerly known as Gibson Glass). Osburn Glass has a website and a store front. Below are photos of Osburn Glass' Vaseline Glass.
