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 Morgantown Glass Works of Morgantown, W.VA. was
one of the greatest innovators in glass design. Its unusual shapes placed it a step
ahead of the other companies of the times. For a period of about 26 years, in the
early 1900s, the company operated under the name of the Economy Tumbler Co, but went back
to the name Morgantown in 1929. The company reasoned that the quality of the glass
they were producing made its name misleading. Some of the colors of their glassware
were azure blue, ritz blue, pink, red, amber, black, green, jade, amethyst, magenta, yellow,
ruby, etc. etc.
In addition to the beautiful colors produced by the company they also
did spectacular etchings. We have several different ones shown below.
