West Virginia Glass Specialty Company No. 6650 Cordial Decanter

Jul 10, 2023 | Museum Monday Treasures

Today’s Museum Monday treasure from the Museum of American Glass in WV is a West Virginia Glass Specialty Company No. 6650 cordial decanter. It is a factory sample, printed on the bottom in permanent marker: “62 – 21 oz. / 7 Pc. Cordial Set / Asst Lattice” and on the side next to the top: “6650.” WV Glass Specialty was a major player in the market for Mid-Century decorated barware and tumblers with hundreds of documented patterns, but new ones, like this Lattice design, continue to show up, filling in otherwise unknown gaps. The decanter is 7” high and could date from any time in the 1960s or 1970s.
