& Co on the "top" edge, in the middle is a 2 and on the bottom is USA. I have a question on a bottle found in Lake Chelan, WA. There are two bridges in the town of Chelan, the older overlooks a damn built in the early part of the century.
The company was the sponsor of the radio drama "Casey, Crime Photographer." In 2012, then-owner Monomoy merged Anchor Hocking with Oneida and created Every Ware Global.
The company was a major producer of Depression glass.
Other Fire King glass lines have fired-on coatings over crystal, in pastel shades of blue, green, peach, or yellow, or bright yellow, blue, orange, or green.
White glass lines were often decorated with decals in natural, floral, or geometric patterns.
