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.
The McKee and Brothers Co began in 1853 in Pittsburgh,
PA. In 1888 the company moved to a town that was ultimately named Jeannette (PA) for
the wife of McKee's founder. In 1903 the company was renamed McKee Glass Co. and
that stayed until 1951 when they became a division of the Thatcher Glass Co. McKee
introduced color to its lines in the early 20's. Their colors were yellow, blue,
custard, amethyst, black, white, amber, canary, green, pink, ruby, orchid, jadite and
various shades of each. A number of their white pieces were decorated; and such
decoration included "dots" and "ships".
