CRACKLE Pattern by Jeannette Glass Co.

A pattern with practical use in mind, this is one which was available in the ‘20s and early 1930s, when the Depression era of glassware began its reign. All of the shapes displayed here are found in marigold. The vaseline shakers are somewhat unusual.

PITCHER and TUMBLER: Items of basic need, these could be found in many homes during the late ‘20s – early ‘30s.

CANDLESTICKS: Prominence of these useful and decorative items is a good indication of the demand, with two sizes available.

SALAD PLATE and SHAKERS: Certainly these two utilitarian examples of the Crackle line would have had daily use!

COVERED CANDY and WALL POCKET:  The covered candy jars must have been made over a long period of time for they are readily available today in most shops dealing in antique glassware. Wall pocket vases are rather a carry-over from the car vases used in the ‘20s - early ‘30s. to embellish “the ride”.

8” SHIP and STARS Plate:  This 8” plate is the only size known within the pattern. Surprisingly, they seem few in number. We might assume that use as salad plates damaged quite a few?

SPITTOON:  Chewing tobacco was a habit followed well into the late ‘30s, but surely this must have been one of the “last of its breed” to have been produced.                         

Dean & Diane Fry, 09/10

(I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel,)  which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel to Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.  As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men?  For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ. But I make known to you, brethren. That the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man.  For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.  (Galatians 1:6-12)

Christianity began in Judaism.  As more and more non-Jews became Christians, the role of Judaism in the Christian faith became an issue. A group of Jewish teachers, called the Judaizers, taught that Christians must first convert to Judaism and follow Jewish ceremonies and practices in order to be saved.

Paul’s writing of this letter (verse 6) affirmed that salvation is by grace through Jesus Christ, not by observing Mosaic law.
