- Made in Fairmont, WV, USA
- Antique: 1915 – 1920’s *
- Description: This is an extraordinarily beautiful set of 4 Monongah low sherbet/dessert/champagne cups. The pattern was called Deep Etch no. 800, which Mrs. Weatherman later titled “Roseland”. It is a very elegant pattern, a band of flowers with double wreaths that circles the bowl of each piece. Within the band of flowers there are four ribbon streamers that flow down into the wreaths and form arrows at the end of the streamers. This is a very art deco looking pattern. Their catalog from 1916 describes them as blown glass, needle etched, sand blast decorated. A lot of work went into this glassware and it shows. They are perfect for champagne of course, but can also be used for serving sherbet, ice cream, pudding and other drinks and desserts.

*Although we’ve seen this pattern listed as being from the 1920’s, Dean Six, the Executive Director of the Museum of American Glass located in Weston, WV, wrote an article in The Daze in March, 1996 which included reprints of the Monongah catalog pages from 1916 showing this pattern and Mr. Six stated “…this pattern was introduced as early as 1915.”
Monongah Glass Company started in August 1904 in Fairmont, West Virginia. As they grew, they acquired other glass factories in the same city, having at least three separate factories at one time. They were very large producers of glass, in 1908, Monongah made 12,000 dozen glass pieces every 24 hours. Monongah Glass Company was acquired by Lancaster Glass in 1927. Collin (Isaac J. Collins), Hocking Glass Company bought Monongah in the early 1930’s and Monongah ceased to exist as a company. The Fairmont plant was closed circa 1933.
