Maryland Glass Co.
I had never heard of the Maryland Glass Co. (MG for short)until a
gentleman by the name of Jay George informed me that some glass we had
attributed to Tiffin was actually made by MG. All of the information
given here is actually taken from a website entitled "Cumberland" Glass
wherein it lists the different glass companies that were once producing
glass in and around the Cumberland, MD area. No one's name is given as
the author of the site so I cannot thank them personally; but for more
information and photos, you should visit that site -
The site is very informative.
So, at the risk of repeating what you can readily find elsewhere I'll
just quote a few of the highlights. "The MG started in 1918..."
They were "mainly a glass decorating company, however, some glass was made
there at the factory while some glass was purchased as blanks. The
glass colors included green, blue, pink, amethyst, amber, and of course
clear. There was some production of ruby red, Bristol blue, and even
orange. These products included candle holders, handled sandwich trays,
salt & pepper shakers, dinnerware, pitchers, tumblers, fan vases, and other
style vases. Many of these items were decorated with enamel, painted
flowers, acid etching, cutting, or gold. The decorating was what Maryland
Glass Co. was really about."
