- Pattern: “Laurel” in Peach Luster, (also found as Sheaves of Wheat)
- Made in USA by Anchor Hocking
- Vintage: 1952 – 1963
- Details: A super very nice set of Fire King Lusterware Jadeite in Peach. This very desirable set of Jadeite is pressed glass with the distinctive metallic glaze that gives it the effect of iridescence. We have found this pattern listed from other vendors as Sheaves of Wheat but we scoured the internet for Fire King experts and Sheaves of Wheat looks like actual wheat, this pattern has Laurel leaves. Both pieces are footed , the sugar bowl has two handles, it is an open sugar (no lid). As the name implies, the set has a pretty band of laurel leaves that goes all around the circumference on both pieces. Gorgeous gift for a Jadeite collector!

Anchor Hocking first introduced the Fire King dinnerware and glassware products in 1942 in Lancaster, Ohio. Anchor Hocking was trying to get into a new market of affordable and beautiful cookware and with this new line of ovenproof, low-cost, low-expansion borosilicate glassware, products, they hit the jackpot. The company branded their new line of ‘classic-American’ glassware pieces as “Fire King,” and the rest is history. People have been using and collecting their modern, mid-century designs since the very beginning. There’s a wide variety of styles, colors, sizes and shapes available, all highly durable which made Fire King a household name. Production of this brand ended in 1976. New Fire King is being made, marked Fire King 2000, it is no longer made of borosilicate glass, now they use tempered soda-lime-silicate glass.
