Paden City Glass
Established in the early 20th century in the West Virginia city of the
same name, Paden City Glass Manufacturing Company was one of the most
dynamic American producers of glass. Though the company was in
existence for less than four decades, its designs still captivate antique glass
collectors with their nuance.
While Paden City created mostly conventionally shaped tableware, they
infused their designs with a vibrant array of color and patterns. Many pieces
featured elaborate etched motifs such as the Lela Bird design, which added a
dash of dazzle.
Though the company shuttered in 1951, their now-antique designs from
Black Forest to Peacock continue to lure collectors. Paden City glass pieces
are relatively scarce on the open market, making their discovery all the more
Paden City featured pieces in more than twenty different
shades. The most popular were their Cheri-Glo, a bright shade of pink, and
Royal, which is an intense shade of cobalt blue
In their early years of production, Paden City bought old molds from
other defunct companies such as the Highbee Glass Company. This can
make it challenging to correctly identify Paden City pieces
Two of Paden City's most innovative creations were the three-legged
mayonnaise bowl and the domed cheese and cracker set
