Hazel Atlas Glass Company

This company was formed in 1902 in Washington, PA, expanding to produce machine-made pressed glass. Their Depression Glass patterns included the noted Shirley Temple Ritz Blue Honeycomb cereal set, including a milk pitcher - 4 ¾” tall, a cereal bowl and a drinking mug. These pieces were prevalent during the 1930’s, and each one portrayed a likeness of the film star in white enamel. Depression-type glassware was of a more “practical” and utilitarian purpose, rather than decorative.

CRUET:  This is one of those items termed a “one-of-a-kind”. Better phrased: “probably tinkered with”. It had no stopper, but had met with “heated assistance”. The flattening process cancelled its usefulness. Did this marigold “whimsey” sell? Yes! It did not bring much money, but was purchased by a collector at the auction.

Dean & Diane Fry – 5-09
Jesus often used the sower - seed metaphor to illustrate the kingdom of God.
Here in Mark 4, He taught three parables—
Parable of the Soils, Parable of the Growing Seed, and Parable of the Mustard Seed.
The seed is the Word of God (Mark 4:14)
And He said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground,
 and should sleep by night and rise by day,
and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how.
For the earth yields crops by itself; first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head.
But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.”
