This past year and a half has been a difficult one. My wonderful husband,
Frank, died in February after
a long illness. Since then I've been dealing with everything that entails. Unfortunately my
business, First Class
Glass, has suffered from lack of attention and will continue to do so because of everything I
still have to do. So I have
decided to take a break.
Starting now, and until further notice, I will not be taking any orders for First Class
Glass. Come this spring I will do a complete update and be open for business.
Thank you for your continued patronage.
See you in the spring.
Central Glass began in the 1860's in Wheeling, W.VA. The
company made tableware for both the home and commercial establishments such
as hotels. They did a great deal of etching and cutting as well as
supplying blanks to other companies for decoration. They had an
excellent reputation for quality goods and introduced color in the 1920's.
Unfortunately, like so many other companies, they went out of business in
1939 due to the Depression. Please note, the number (#)
preceding each item refers to our inventory number. Please use when
inquiring or ordering. Thank you.
