Cut File

Cut File is another pattern named by Margaret and Gary Workman. Originally known as the 42 Series, it was noted in 1994 by Workman in the colours flint and citron, but has been seen at least in rosalin and as an 8″ vase in the deep amethyst that forms the base colour for the dark (delustre) carnival glass.

Ken Arnold notes in Australian Depression Glass that this series was found in the 1929 catalogue, but not the 1932 catalogue. Therefore we can assume it had a fairly brief run.
