Hazel Atlas Glass

A wonder originating in Washington, Pennsylvania, Hazel-Atlas Glass Company was one of the largest and most prolific producers of 20th-century glassware. Emerging in 1902 as a conglomerate of several smaller glass companies, Hazel-Atlas excelled in a wide variety of commercial patterns and styles over its half-a-century tenure.

Even in its earliest days of production, Hazel-Atlas made a name for itself by producing a remarkable range of glass vessels for utilitarian or commercial use. Hazel-Atlas' products were distinct in that they came in relatively unique colors, which paved the company’s way into the field of decorative glass dinnerware lines.

By the '50s, Hazel-Atlas had expanded into all fields of kitchen and tableware deigns. From their iconic mixing bowls to their kiddieware line with child-friendly motifs, the company embraced consumer demand to develop both colorful and crafty designs that still compel collectors today.
