Hi Everyone,

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 lives.

Caren Reed

During the Depression Era, commonly thought of as the day the Stock Market crashed in 1929 and the start of WWII, glass companies in the United States began experimenting with color.  Colored glass had been introduced prior to this but it was during the Depression years that the production of it was in its heyday.  Companies such as Heisey, Cambridge, Fostoria, U.S. Glass, New Martinsville, Paden City, etc produced some of the prettiest pieces of bedroom and bathroom glass you'll ever see.  The items they produced included powder jars, perfume bottles and atomizers, lamps, vanity sets, towel bars, and the list goes on.  Colors ranged from pink and green to black and red and everything in between.  Some of the pieces have very classic traditional shapes and others are pure Art Deco. We have a lovely selection for your enjoyment and of course purchase. The pages are listed by color.  Click on the color for the powder jars you'd like to see.
