Just an FYI here, today all goods made upon which we eat are no longer made in the USA. I have noticed imports mostly from India and some from China. This topic came up one day at a local glassware shop that does screen printing and later at a school that teaches glassware making as art. Skills and dollars are being lost here. A good subject thread can be for jobs lost and how we can get them back.

There is a genuine bit of irony in this fact.

Porcelain plates and dishes were once very rare and highly sought after because they had to be imported from China - hence the name "china" being applied to the very finest quality of porcelain - the making of which was at one time unknown here in the west, where stoneware and pottery were the usual materials employed in the manufacture of European tableware. The more expensive imported china from Asia being a luxury that only the wealthy could afford.

Fast forward a few hundred years and by the last quarter of the 20th century, just the opposite was the case - the finest and most expensive china was being produced (and still is) in Europe, while the cheap pottery and stoneware dishes of the poorer classes are imported by the tons from China and sold at the dollar tree.

I 've always had something of a fascination for a certain type of pottery vessel known variously as a "Bellarmine jug" or "Bartmann krug" (bearded man jug) or as "greybeards" - these distinctive, pot-bellied jugs were widely used for wine storage in Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries. These jugs are distinguished by the fact that the neck of the jug is usually decorated with the image of a man's face with a flowing beard, while under this a floral or heraldic type medallion is often found on the belly of the jug:

The name Bellarmine arises from the name of a Catholic clergyman, Cardinal Robert Bellarmine (1542-1621), who was particularly unpopular among Protestants due to his Counter-Reformation position. It has been suggested that his name became attached to the jugs due to the fact that he was thought to resemble the fat bearded man depicted on them:

My personal theory however is that the face on the jugs was originally intended to depict the Graeco-Roman deity, Bacchus, the god of wine in Classical mythology:

These types of jugs seem to have been the preferred vessels used in making what were referred to as "witch bottles" - a protective charm made by placing thorns, nails, and other objects inside a jug which was them buried or otherwise hidden near the entrance of a home to prevent the occupants from falling victim to malevolent witchcraft - a popular charm during the height of the Witch craze that was widespread throughout 15th and 16th century Europe:

Bellarmine jugs were widely exported from their original point of manufacture in the Cologne region of Germany to Britain and as far away as the American colonies where archaeologists have discovered them among the artifacts uncovered from the early Jamestown and Williamsburg colonies of Virginia:

These early colonial-era jugs may have been what led to the development of face-jugs that have long been a distinctive part of historical Southern pottery in the United States, particularly among the potters who came out of the Edgefield, South Carolina, region :

Fireking/Anchor Hocking 'Peach Lustre'

Quote:

Fire King is a pressed oven glass, similar to Pyrex, that was manufactured from the early 1940's through the 1970's. Manufactured by the Anchor Hocking company, this affordable collectible glassware can be found at thrift shops, flea markets, and yard sales at very reasonable prices. An eBay search of "Fire King" will produce thousands of results for this popular glassware.

Fire King dinnerware, bakeware, and other dishware was often given as a premium in bags of flour or given away at gas stations. It could be purchased at grocery stores, dime stores and hardware stores. Attractive, durable, and inexpensive, it was intended to be multi-functional. Covered casserole dishes could be used to bake and serve, and then store the leftovers in the refrigerator. Loaf pans and utility trays were often sold without mentioning a particular use for the item. Anchor Hocking also produced baby bottles, cosmetic containers, ash trays and souvenir items from Fire King glass.
...
Many baby boomers will recall their grandmothers' Peach Lustre dinnerware. This pattern is also one of the most well-known and widely collected of Anchor Hocking's Fire-King products. Peach Lustre is an iridescent peach color with a mirror-like finish and was applied to different styles of Fire-King dinnerware.

I remember my grandmother having a number of bowls made of that. I believe she said they used to be given away in something like oatmeal or washing powder. Her kitchen cabinets were full of various different types of glassware that she had acquired over the years - depression glass, carnival glass, fire king, and some clear blue colored glassware with a pattern of bubble-like dimples on the bottom.

I kept a set of pressed glass that she had in this thistle pattern which was originally made by the Cambrige Glass Company of Ohio in the early 1900's:

There's a good amount of American Art Glass being made these days, mostly in small studios. Blenko Glass, in Milton, W. Va, has been around a long time. I was talking with their production manager once a few years back and he was measuring their output in tons per day. That's the level of demand for glass in America.

Dale Chihuly, the currently reigning 'Glass God of the Universe' is the leading name in American Art Glass these days....with major exhibitions around the world.

Much of his work is monumental is scale...
