Duncan & Miller is a well-known glass manufacturing company founded by George Duncan in 1865 in Washington, Pennsylvania. By 1890, the company joined other glass companies to form the United States Glass Company. In 1877, George Duncan died and his son, James E. Duncan, took over the company. On November 15, 1900, the firm was officially incorporated as “Duncan and Miller Glass Company”. Duncan introduced their “Early American Lace Glass” in 1925. In the 1920’s Duncan made their Sandwich pattern in crystal, green, amber and rose. Ruby was advertised in the early 1930’s and chartreuse in 1949. Duncan Miller closed in 1955, the Sandwich pattern was continued at U.S. Glass Company in their Duncan & Miller Division. In the 1960s, Indiana Glass Company acquired the Duncan moulds. Duncan Miller Glass is so loved, that a National Duncan Glass Society was founded in 1975, there is also a Duncan Glass museum.
Depression Glass is clear or colored translucent machine made glassware that was distributed free, or at low cost, in the United States and Canada around the time of the Great Depression starting in the 1920’s but continued past the depression into the 1950’s. Food manufacturers and distributors put a piece of glassware in boxes of food, as an incentive to purchase. Some movie theaters, gas stations and other businesses handed out pieces as a thank you for shopping at their establishment.
