Federal Glass Co. Card Suit Mugs

28 Oct

20171025_113050

These card suit mugs were manufactured by the Federal Glass Co. sometime in the 1950’s or early 60’s.  This pattern is very popular even today and mugs in this great condition are getting harder to find on the secondary market. Federal Glass ceased production in the 1970’s.  You can identify a Federal Glass piece by the embossed F in a shield on the bottom of the pieces.

These will be available only at my booth at the Ottawa Antique and Vintage Market being held at the Carleton University Fieldhouse on November 4th and 5th, 2017.   Please visit their website and facebook pages for more information: @http://www.ottawaantiqueandvintagemarket.ca/

You can download a $2 off coupon on the entrance fee.

Some history of the company according to Wikipedia:

W H Grindley was an English pottery company that made earthenware and ironstone tableware, including flow blue. The company was founded in 1880 by William Harry Grindley (b. 1859) of Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent.

The company was founded at the Newfield Pottery by Grindley and Alfred Meakin (connected to J. & G. Meakin company), but the partnership ended in 1884 and Grindley continued alone. It moved to the Woodland Pottery in 1891. William Harry Grindley died in 1926.

W H Grindley was taken over by Alfred Clough in 1960, and became known as Grindley of Stoke in 1978. The company bought Ceramix in 1980, and was itself bought by Federated Potteries in 1982 before being bought back by W H Grindley in 1988. The company went into receivership in 1991 and was taken over by Woodlands Pottery. Pattern books and records from 1880-1930 are in the Stoke-on-Trent City Archives.
