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.
Parrot, also known as Sylvan, was manufactured by the
Federal Glass Co from 1931 to 1932. It was made primarily in green and amber with a
few scattered pieces in crystal and blue. Parrot is often mistaken for Georgian
Lovebirds and vice versa, so be sure you know what you're looking at. Since Parrot
was only made for about 1-1/2 years it is not plentiful and tends to be expensive.
The pitcher, which was only made in green is quite rare so don't be surprised at a $3,000
price tag if you even see one. The butter dish in both amber and green is hard to
find as are the hot plates and the tall sherbet. The hot plates look like large
coasters. One has a smooth round edge the other style has points. (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 Florence.)
