By 1925, they had five furnaces and many specialty shops producing stemware, glass, lamps, dinnerware and much more.
By 1950, they had produced more than 8 million pieces of glass and crystal. During the 1960’s and 1970’s, they had displays set up in major department stores and even produced their own magazine, “Creating with Crystal”.
The company was sold to Lancaster Colony Corporation in 1983 and closed in 1986.
