Bed and Bath Glass
July 12, 2014
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
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
