Glass Study Group - June 12, 2003
Glass Club for June had as a mini-focus glass made by Paden City Glass (spoken Pay-din - long A sound). The company operated from 1916-1951 with as many as 300 employees at times. Paden City etched glassware of the 1930-40s is some of today's most desirable and current market prices reflect this. Colors made at Paden City included: amber, blue (light), Cheriglo (pink), Copen Blue, crystal, ebony, forest green, green (light), Mulberry (amethyst), opal or milk glass, primrose (dusty pink), royal/cobalt blue, ruby, teal and yellow.
Other glass shared included Victorian oil lamps, a black satin console set with gold decoration by Wheeling Decorating Co., a Pairpoint ruby compote with crystal controlled bubble stem and several nice pieces of Imperial glass. An additional 30 plus pieces of glass were shared.
Shown in the image is Party Line green cup, Penny line ruby goblet, Cupid etch on Archaic Line green plate, Comet blue sugar bowl, Party Line amber Goblet and Spring Orchard etch on crystal wine.
