dominion saguenay


This pattern is called Saguenay and was made by Dominion Glass Co. of  Canada, based in Montreal QC, with factories in Nova Scotia, and Ontario (Wallaceburg) .  This was Canada’s answer to the coloured depression glass that was being made in the US during the 30’s.  The beautiful blue colour is fired on the outside over clear glass.  Hard to tell from my photo, but the pattern has fine ridges all around the pieces.  There are only two verifiable patterns of Canadian depression glass.  This one and one called Swirl, also made by Dominion Glass, which was only made in clear glass.  Saguenay came in yellow, pink, mint green, blue and clear.

For sale at my booth in Almonte ON at the Almonte Antique Market.

Vintage Storage Jars

12 Mar


I haven’t quite got the hang of taking photos of clear glass.  My photos don’t really do justice to these pieces.  On the left is a large round jar with ‘United States Nuts Co. embossed on the side.  This would have been for dispensing nuts in a General Store back in the day.  The two jars with the red plastic handles and metal lids are really quite pretty.  The smaller one in front with the wood and black plastic lid has a waffle pattern and was made by Dominion Glass in Montreal.  The one in the back with the clear glass lid is also a Canadian glass manufacturer.  These will be for sale at my booth in Almonte ON at the Almonte Antique Market.

Note: the US Nuts Co. container is now SOLD!

The storage jars with red knob lids are now SOLD!!
