Emerald Glo by Paden City, Mid Century Glassware

25 Apr

IMG_4931 IMG_4938



Emerald Glo was made by Paden City Glass Company for Rubel in the 1940’s and 50’s.  The pattern was also made by Fenton in the later years of production but Fenton did not have the ‘star cut’ on it’s glass pieces.  All pieces with the ‘star cut’ on the glass were made by Paden City.  The pieces above all have the star cut on the glass.   All lids have green Bakelite handles.

The trio is a condiment set, the lidded bowl is a Marmalade dish, and the 2 on the tray are cream and sugar.

Please note these items are now SOLD!!!

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!!

Rubberized Spaghetti Swirl Glasses and Pitcher

21 Jan


I don’t have any idea what the proper name for this pattern is but I have found some on line using the term Spaghetti Swirl.  If anyone out there knows the right name, please feel free to contact me.  They date to the  50’s or 60’s  and the shape of the jug suggests Anchor Hocking or Hazel Atlas but there are no identifying marks on the glass.  Very solid glasses  with a rubberized coating for non slip grip.

Note: These have been SOLD

Hazel Ware Moroccan Amethyst Glassware

13 Dec

morrocan amethyst

This glassware is called Moroccan Amythyst and was made by the Hazel Ware Co. in the 1960’s.   The pattern name of the pieces with the square bases are called ‘Colony’ .  The swirled pattern is of course called  ‘Swirl’.   The purple colour is really beautiful and when a few pieces are set out together, they make quite a bold decor.
