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
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.
