Vintage Anchor Hocking

Anchor Hocking tall octagonal jar

This unusual and very attractive clear glass octagonal jar stands a whopping 15" tall when lidded and probably was originally a drug store show globe apothecary or display jar. The bottom of its round pedestal base is 3-3/4" in diameter, and the round mouth opening is 3" in diameter. The bottom rim of the 3-3/4" finial-topped lid carries the Anchor Hocking anchor and H logo on one side and says U.S.A. on the other. This is quite an impressive old piece that’s starting to iridesce in beautiful rainbow colors in just the right light. Great condition, with no chips, cracks, or scratches outside and only minor usage scuffing inside. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Price: $70.00 + s/h and insurance

Anchor Hocking tilt top candy jar

Many years ago, this big ol’ tilt mouth jar undoubtedly started its life in a General Store or drug store as one of a row of matching containers holding colorful penny candy. Its black tin lid was hinged at the top so the proprietor could flip it up to scoop out the candy, but I’ll bet you anything that countless gleeful little kids did waaay more lid flipping than that kindly proprietor! The jar stands 9-1/2" tall x 6" wide, but its faceted sides flare out to become 7-3/4" wide and the bowed center of the 8" long sloping front is 6-3/4" wide. The large opening in that sloping front has an inside diameter of 5" and an outside lip diameter of 6" over which the black tin lid rests. It still has its metal hinge at the top, but all that lid flipping decades ago must have been too much for the metal collar that surely originally encircled the jar’s short neck and to which the hinge attached. It’s long since gone, and the lid itself has several little dents and scratches where the base metal shows through. The back side of the jar is curved, as is the lower portion of the front side, both leading to the 5-1/8" x 6-3/4" bottom in which the slightly concave base contains the impressed Anchor Hocking logo of an anchor and H. Glass is in excellent condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks, and only minor interior scratching. Whether you fill it with candy, cookies, colorful pasta, or even your prized matchbook collection (which is what it contained when we found it), this neat old jar is ready to continue leading a useful and decorative life for many more decades to come.

Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks, but some very light usage scratching on the interior. Perfect size for baking brownies -- yum yum! (Click on picture for more images.)

Fire King 9" pie plate

This vintage Fire King clear glass pie plate stands 1-1/4" high with diameters of 9-1/8" at its rolled-edge top and 6-1/2" at the bottom. Marked “Fire-King,” “T. M. Reg.,” “Made in U.S.A.,” “460,” and “9 IN.” Excellent vintage condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks, but interior scuffing and scratching appropriate for its age.

Anchor Hocking Swedish Modern bowl

This unusually shaped 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" x 3-1/2" high clear glass bowl is part of the Swedish Modern line by Anchor Hocking. The rim is deeply scalloped, and the four knob feet at the 2" diameter base are actually the bottoms of long teardrops that sweep upward and form a pleasing design on the four corners of the bowl sides. No nicks, chips, or cracks, but usage scuffing and light scratching to the interior. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Fire King covered refrigerator dish

Here’s a great vintage Fire King lidded refrigerator dish that measures 8-3/8" x 4-1/4" x 2-1/2" tall and is made of translucent milk glass called Anchor White, Fire King being a division of Anchor Hocking. Both sides feature colorful hand-painted peaches, grapes, and leaves, and here’s where the “fight” begins as to whether this is a Gay Fad pattern or not. Virtually all vintage Fire King pieces decorated with hand-painted fruit are attributed to Gay Fad, and I thought so, too, until I did more research and discovered the Washington Company of Washington, PA. This decorating company started in the mid-1940’s about the same time as Gay Fad did, but outlived Gay Fad by at least 15 years. As early as 1956, Washington Co. was advertising their “Vintage” pattern on translucent white “oven glass” that definitely looks like Fire King, although of course no decorating company advertised the companies that produced the glass “blanks” they decorated. The Washington Co.’s Vintage pattern had many fruit components, including pears, peaches, grapes, plums, and cherries. How many of these components appeared together on any given item depended on the item’s size. A coffee mug might feature only a single piece of fruit, while a salad bowl or a refrigerator dish usually combined two or more fruits together into one pattern. A 1965 Kroger coupon book picturing the “hand-painted ovenware” people could get each week as freebies or at drastically reduced coupon prices says the pattern name is “Vintage” and the pieces are hand-painted in Washington, PA, although the book doesn’t specifically mention the Washington Co. or say which glass company made the ovenware. However, our refrigerator dish is one of the pieces shown in that coupon book! So it appears that our refrigerator dish was decorated by the Washington Co., but see the discussion of this pattern on our Gay Fad emails page.

The circular bottom mark on our dish says “Fire King Ovenware, Made in U.S.A.” and carries the number 12. The clear glass lid features a 1/2" beaded border around its innermost raised rectangle and is marked “Fire King Ovenware” inside plus the number 9. When lidded, this refrigerator dish is 3" tall. The leftmost brown stem on one side of the dish has lost some of its brown color over the years, but other than that, both the dish and its lid are in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks. See our coordinating bowl listed immediately below. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Fire King #9 bowl

This medium sized mixing or serving bowl coordinates with our lidded refrigerator dish listed immediately above, and is also shown in the 1965 Kroger coupon book as being the “Vintage” pattern hand-painted in Washington, PA. It stands 3-1/4" high with diameters of 7-3/8" at the rim and 3" at the base. It’s made of translucent milk glass called Anchor White, Fire King being a division of Anchor Hocking, and features three hand-painted fruit designs: a peach and stem of cherries, a pear, and a stem of grapes, all with leaves. Bottom is marked “Fire King Oven Ware, 9, Made in U.S.A.” Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or loss of color. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.
