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.
Iris, also known as Iris and Herringbone, was made by
Jeannette Glass from 1928 to 1932, again in some pieces and colors in the 50's and the
70's. All of the pieces in the line were made in crystal, most in iridescent (which
looks like carnival glass and is often mistaken for that) and a few pieces in transparent
green and pink all of which are hard to find and thus somewhat expensive. The newer
pieces are often 2 colors. In iridescentl, the pieces that will be the hardest to
find are the demitasse cup and saucer, fruit or nut set (a large bowl with metal insert at
the bottom for nut picks or fruit knives), the 5-1/2" goblets and the 4" footed
sherbet. (We are sorry but we cannot email photos of each and every piece of glass
for sale. If you need to see a picture of an item to know what it looks like we
highly recommend The Collector's Encyclopedia of Depression Glass by Gene
