Pairpoint Advertisement, Feb. 8, 1917 (Post 2009, 04-11.1)
Member George Fogg sends us the following transcription of an interesting Pairpoint advertisement that he came across in the Crockery & Glass Journal (Vol. 85, no. 6 [Feb. 8, 1917], p. 22): "Period Designs on Glassware / In period designs the Pairpoint Corporation have achieved great success. The “Louis XVI,” “Adam” and “Georgian” patterns are worthy of all the good things that can be said of them. Vases, baskets, bowls, plates, cheese-and –cracker dishes, grape-juice sets and other items are shown. Another entirely distinctive production is an engraved line in novel shapes with trimmings of blue, amethyst and chrysoprase [a gemstone variety of chalcedony shading in color from apple-green to deep green]. For instance, the stem of a comport is encircled from base to bowl by one of the colors mentioned, the top and base being also edged with the same." If NBMOG members or web site visitors have examples of this glass, we would welcome the opportunity to illustrate it on our Forum page.
