Hazel Atlas Reamers
July 28, 2014
As many of you know I shut down First Class Glass in order to get my life
and the business in order. I had planned to reopen for business this spring.
As you can see I didn't make it. I have realzied that I just don't have
enough hours in the day to do everything I need to do. So I have decided to
shut down First Class Glass permanently. That will be effective on August
31, 2014. In the meantime the website is open and I have placed sales on
every item. The discounts range from 20% to 50% off the price as listed.
There will be no additional discounts.
Please note, since I was unable to take a complete inventory there may be
some items that are no longer available. I won't know that until I search
for the items after you've placed an order. If I no longer have an item I
will call or email immediately and let you know.
Thank you for your business and I wish you all long, healthy and happy
Hazel Atlas Glass Company was created with the merger
of the Hazel Glass Company and the Atlas Glass and Metal Company, both of Washington, PA
in 1902. Hazel Atlas opened its headquarters in Wheeling, West Virginia. In
1929 they began to make colored glass. They made green, pink, topaz, cobalt blue,
black, crystal, white milk glass (wmg) and dark amethyst. One of lines made by the
company was reamers - orange juice squeezers. These came in both one and 2-piece
such as the ones below. Please be assured that we know the difference between the
old and the repros. I am a reamer collector and own over 500 reamers!! I can
definitely spot the new ones. The company was taken over by Continental Can in
1956. Just a further note on reamers, they come in glass, plastic (mostly new),
metal including sterling silver, pottery, china and porcelain. You can find the
ordinary ones for as little as $8.00 and the rare ones for as much as $5,000.00.
They're fun to collect and the one piece reamers with handles that form a loop, like a
coffee cup, can be easily and creatively displayed without taking up a great deal of room.
- yellow 2-piece reamer $245
- "Criss Cross"
green tab-handle reamer $45
