McKee Glass Company was founded in 1853 in Pittsburgh, PA and was originally named McKee and Brothers Glass Works. In 1901, the National Glass Company took over the factory and ran it as McKee Glass until 1904. In 1904, National leased the factory to McKee-Jeannette Glass Company. In 1908, the company reorganized and became the McKee Glass Company. Between 1904 and 1915, McKee Glass Co. introduced a series of high quality pressed glass imitations of cut glass, they had 21 different patterns in the original line with the most popular being their Aztec line. They continued with this “Pres Cut” line until about 1927. In 1951 they became McKee Division of the Thatcher Glass Co. until they were bought out by the Jeannette Corporation in 1961.
