September 26, 2013

Hi Everyone,

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.

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.
