We can hardly believe this has survived, and we are so very glad to see it. It's really rare, and completely charming. 1920's

The Consolidated Lamp and Glass Company was formed in Fostoria, Ohio in 1893 from the merger of the Fostoria Shade and Lamp Company with Wallace and McAffee Company. They moved to Coraopolis when their glassworks burned down only two years later. In the 1890's they produced some art glass vases and bowls, but for many years their main production was high quality lamps, globes and shades.

Also during the 1920's, Consolidated produced and marketed art glass based on old Spanish designs (which they called Catalonian glass) and acid etched designs (called Florentine) amongst others. Their second great success was with their bold, angular, Ruba Rombic designs, introduced in 1928. These designs have become highly collectable too.

Measures 13 1/2" x4 1/2" x 6".
