  • Pattern:  Toltec
  • Made in: Jeannette, PA, USA 
  • Vintage:  1935 - 1940
  • Details:   We believe this is an original McKee, (not Kemple), Milk Glass Open Sugar Bowl in their "Toltec" pattern.  Toltec was one of the first Prescut patterns released by McKee, originally in clear glass (1904).  We know that Kemple purchased many of the McKee moulds  in 1945 and reproduced this pattern in Milk Glass and other colors, however, this specific sugar bowl is marked with the McKee logo used between 1935 - 1940 (McK within a circle), so we are pretty confident this is McKee and not Kemple.   All the Prescut patterns are very intricate, the Toltec has very pretty hobstars that look like little snowflakes to us.  If you broke your McKee Toltec Sugar, we hope this is a great find!  A great gift for a milk glass collector, or for your own use or display.

McKee Glass has a long history going back to S. McKee & Company in 1834 Pittsburg, PA. McKee went through several partnerships and mergers.   In 1904 they were doing business as McKee-Jeannette Glass Company, and that's the year they were granted a patent for the Prescut name (aka “tec” patterns).   Issued for the masses who couldn't afford fine cut crystal, these patterns imitated the fine cut glass, and looked beautiful.  The first two patterns issued were Aztec and Toltec.  McKee is also known for their “Glasbake” brand glass, introduced in 1917 to compete with Pyrex.  In 1951, McKee became a division of the Thatcher Glass Manufacturing Company and renamed McKee Division of Thatcher Glass Company.  In 1961, Thatcher sold the company to another glass manufacturer, Jeannette Glass Co.  Unfortunately Jeannette glass closed in 1983.
