E is for Elegant Glass

Elegant Glass, often confused with Depression Glass, is of a much higher quality and was often purchased through high end department and jewelry stores.  It was an alternative to fine china from the 1920's through the 1950's and served as a nice replacement to the cheap imports that would eventually lead to the demise of glassware made in the USA.  Elegant Glass was made by many manufacturers, including:  Cambridge, Fenton, Fostoria , Heisey, Imperial, Mckee, Paden City, Tiffin and Westmoreland Glass Company to name a few.  

Happy Hunting!

These are beautiful! Thanks for the great information. I believe I have a couple of vintage candy dishes that fall into this category.
