Anchor Hocking Tumblers

Nov 21, 2022 | Museum Monday Treasures

Today’s Museum Monday treasure from the Museum of American Glass in WV is a pair of No. 3600/579 12 oz. tumblers from the Anchor Hocking Corporation. The first is a black screen-printed design of bottles and stemware with overlay of plum in the Anticipation pattern, while the second is in the same pattern but with an overlay of green. Both are signed Wm. Janeri and appear in the Anchor Hocking 1966-1967 catalog as part of the Elegance series.

William Janeri was hired as a designer in 1960, eventually becoming director of the design department of the Tableware Division, before retiring from Anchor Hocking in 1986. He signed a number of the decorations that he created for them over the years.
