Anchor Hocking Glass

Anchor Hocking Glass Co. was established in 1905. Lancaster Glass was in business from 1908 to 1937, when Anchor Hocking bought the company. Newell Corp. acquired Anchor Hocking Glass Co. in July 1987. Following many changeovers in production and ownership, cost-cutting ventures were not enough to sustain operations. In April 2006, Anchor Hocking filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

HANDLED URN: While this urn is classified as an Anchor Hocking product, we all know that molds are circulated among manufacturers over time. An ebay seller listed this piece for sale in November 2008 describing it as such:  Made by Turner Glass Co. of Terre Haute, IN – 1905-1930, noting an inverted T within a triangle, along with #9 down inside the urn.

OIL LAMP: Has the same “pebble surface” as the Urn, so it’s natural to believe that it was produced by Anchor Hocking.

3 TUMBLERS:  These were included in the tumbler collection of the late Cecil Whitley.

Dean & Diane Fry, 5/12
When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your fields,
nor shall you gather the gleanings of your harvest.
And you shall not glean your vineyard, nor shall you gather every grape of your vineyard;
you shall leave them for the poor and the stranger:
I am the Lord your God.
You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another. And you shall not swear by My name falsely,
Nor shall you profane the name of your God; I am the Lord.
You shall not cheat your neighbor, nor rob him.
The wages of him who is hired shall not remain with you all night until morning.
You shall not curse the deaf, nor put a stumbling block before the blind,
 but shall fear your God: I am the Lord.
You shall do no injustice in judgment.  You shall not be partial to the poor,
Nor honor the person of the mighty. In righteousness you shall judge your neighbor.
(Leviticus 19:9-15)
