Hey Craig,Is that 718 from a U.S. Glass house?, If so is it one of the ones that were used in Manitoba?

Canadian origin I believe it came from eastern Ontario. Never heard of any coming out of Manitoba.

Yeah,really strange,apparently there was usage of Saratoga style 718s found in Manitoba! They had a larger chunky appearance,not like the Canadian style. I notice your 718 doesnt have the line above the top wire groove that is the hallmark of canadian 718s. Its an awesome piece which i wish was on my shelf. Maybe just a canadian variant but it looks american to my old eyes. Awesome glass man.. :o

Hey, Craig

Great group! I still love that deep, tealy 742. Never seen another one quite like it... and a hell of a story!
I am pretty confident that your 718 is an American-made piece. Beauty of a colour on that one. The Canadian 718s only seem to come in two mould styles - that one looks more similar to the American pieces I've seen in colour and mould shape. I would ask for other opinions to verify.
What's the provenance on the 726, if there is any? I do like those pieces, but they don't seem to turn up much in my area.
Take care!
Barrett
