Glassware

I offer various types of glasses and pitchers by a variety of manufacturers, including Culver, Cris d'Arques, Duncan Miller, Heisy, Fostoria (over twenty patterns represented, especially the American pattern), Tiffin (primarily Franciscan Madeira glassware), Imperial (Candlewick), Libbey, Indiana Glass and Jeannette Glass Company. Although used, these pieces show little wear and tear. Be sure to check out Housewares and Barware as well for more glass items. I have a special category for vintage champagne glasses.

The company is still in production today as a divison of Global Home Products with its headquarters located in Lancaster, Ohio. You will find items from the Fire King line listed separately. Look for items under dinnerware, barware, houseware, kitchenware and glassware.

Arcoroc

I don't know much about Arcoroc other than it is a French Company that produces glassware. I believe it is also a part of ARC International.

I carry other items in Dinnerware (Cape Cod), Housewares, Glassware and Miscellanous.

Culver Glass

Culver Glass Company was an American glass manufacturer. The glassware was very popular in the 1950s and remains so to this day for many collectors. This glassware is getting harder and harder to find in very good or execellent condition. Too many people are putting it in their dishwashers - the shame of it!!! I have also found that not all pieces bear the Culver name. The signed Valencia pattern differs slighty from the unsigned. Many pieces were probably only marked with paper labels.

DC Comics

DC Comics most likely began in 1937 as "Dective Comics". Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, et. al. provided hours of adventure for the avid comic reader.

Fire King

Fire King was a line of the Anchor Hocking Glass Company which began in 1941 and continued into the 1970s.

Pieces are found in Dinnerware, Kitchenware and Glassware.

Fostoria

Fostoria is a well-known United States glass manufacturer. I carry several different colors of the Cabaret pattern developed for the Franciscan Pottery Company to complement their dinnerware.

Franciscan Franciscan Cabaret Glassware Franciscan

Franciscan

Franciscan Ware, or Franciscan Pottery as it was first named in 1934, was manufactured by Gladding-McBean and Company of Glendale, CA. Scores of different styles and patterns were produced. In 1962 Gladding McBean and Company merged with the Lock Joint Pipe Company and became Interpace. The Franciscan line continued in California until 1984 when the facility at Glendale was closed and all production moved to England (later some patterns/pieces were produced in Japan, China and Portugal). It is important to note that not all pieces carry a “Franciscan” mark. Unless you are familiar with a particular pattern, you may not recognize it as “Franciscan.” I carry mostly those patterns produced in California but also a few made in England and China which I list separately. Even those pieces made in California have slight variations due to mold changes, or, for those which are hand-painted, the skill of the painter. I have pieces from over one hundred and sixty-two Franciscan patterns. I always think of Desert Rose for Easter (although Wild Flower would work equally well), Ivy for St. Patrick's Day, October for Thanksgiving and Apple for Christmas. Franciscan China is now only produced in China. While some of the English glassware is listed with the English dinnerware, the pieces produced in the USA by Fostoria (Cabaret) and Tiffin (Madeira) are listed under Glassware.

In March of 2010, the company merged with Homer Laughlin China Company.

L. G. Wright Glass Company

The L. G. Wright Glass Company was a distributor of glassware manufactured by other companies such as Fenton, Fostoria, Morgantown, etc. but produced on L. G. Wright's own molds. For this reason, and the fact that paper labels were used, it is sometimes extremely difficult to tell who manufactured a given piece. L. G. Wright Glass closed in 1999. When the plant closed, many of the molds were sold to Japanese firms who are now manufacturing reproductions but the colors and weight of the items are not the same as the originals.

Libbey Glass

In business since 1818, the Libbey Glass Company is arguably one of the most famous and longest lasting American/Canadian glass manufacturers.

Where I can identify the specific manufacturer (such as Fire King), you will find items listed under that manufacturer. When I can't identify a specific company, I list the items here under the McDonald's name in Glassware like the Pittsburg Steelers glasses in our photo. Look for McDonald's coffee mugs under "Fire King" dinnerware.

Mikasa

Mikasa, Inc. was found in 1948 by George Aratani. The company originated in California but its headquarters are now located in Secaucus, New Jersey.
