Hazelware’s No. G154 Vintage Line Lopsided Goblet

Dec 18, 2023 | Museum Monday Treasures

Today’s Museum Monday treasure from the Museum of American Glass in WV is a decidedly lopsided goblet in Hazelware’s No. G154 Vintage line. This would have been made during the years after the Hazel Atlas Glass Company in Clarksburg, West Virginia, had become part of the Continental Can Company, with the pattern still in production when the Brockway Glass Company took over, so could have been made anytime ca. 1963-1975. It is obviously a whimsey, either deliberately or accidentally slumped and then taken home by a factory worker. Since Clarksburg is just a little north of Weston, where we are located, it is not surprising for something like this to turn up in our area. The second photograph is a goblet looking the way it is supposed to. The “good” version is 6” high. The color, which most people would describe as amber, was called “gold” by the company.
