The Jeannette Bottle Works Company was founded in 1887 in Jeannette, Pennsylvania. At this time in their history they only produced handmade bottles.
In 1899, Jeannette Bottle Works joined the machine age and became the Jeannette Glass Company. With the new machinery (O'Neil semi-automatic bottle blowing machine), Jeannette Glass was soon producing canning jars, relish jars and automobile headlight lenses.
Jeannette Glass continued to expand and by 1904, they added medical supplies and household items to their production line.
In the early 1920s, new machinery was added and Jeannette Glass began producing tableware items. This cheaply made and brightly colored tableware became known as Depression Glass and is highly collectible today.
In 1961, the Jeannette Glass Company acquired the old McKee Glass factory which was also located in Jeannette, Pennsylvania. Together they produced many beautiful glass patterns until 1983. Due to a failing American market, Jeannette Glass shut down in 1983.
