Anchor Hocking Fire King Jadite Mugs


, , , , , ,

I really like these mugs, although they are small for coffee drinkers nowadays – they don’t hold a grande!

There are two or three different markings between the four pieces but they appear to have all been produced in the 1940s to 1950s.

The smaller cups/mugs are the heavier restaurantware and remind me of old time diners.

Fostoria Glass – Five Section Relish Dish in the Mayfair Line, Etched with the Fruit Design


, , , , , , , , ,

I came across this piece in a local thrift shop.  I always wonder how it made its way from West Virginia to a small Ontario town.  But I guess during its 80+ years there was lots of time for travel.  A poster in the Everyday and Elegant Glass Forum reports that this etch was introduced in 1933 and discontinued in 1939.

The etch is Fostoria’s #320 – Fruit Design and the line is #2419 – Mayfair.

This is a good sized, heavy piece.  The dish is 13 1/4 inches at its longest, 7 3/4 inches wide in the middle and 9 1/4 inches at its widest points. It stands 1 1/4 inches.

The glass is so bright it almost glows.  It is a very attractive piece.
