How it was distributed

Our parents and grandparents tell us that they got glass from the depression era when they went to the movies, at the grocery store, in boxes of detergent (remember Duz?) or bought gas. It was given away as an incentive to continue to patronize businesses or services much like the trading stamps of the 50's and 60's. Most of the items distributed this way were the everyday plates, cups, saucers, etc that were constantly getting chipped or broken due to wear.

Although glass from this era can make a beautiful addition to a meal, we should remember a few things on how to handle and care for it.

Always hand wash with mild detergent.
Never microwave
If stacking, layer plates with paper plates between
Layer bowls with large coffee filters between
Never nest glasses
