Collecting

Moon and Star Glassware

This is the latest collection of glassware I have delved into. It started with one candy dish and wasn't supposed to go beyond that, but as you can see, I cannot resist colored glassware of any kind. The Moon and Star pattern was made by Adams & Co., U.S. Glass, L. G. Wright, Fenton, L. E. Smith, and Weishar Enterprises. It has been produced from 1880 to the 1990s. Currently, this is a very affordable glassware, and the vibrant colors really pack a punch.

According to Collecting Glassware from the 40s, 50s, and 60s by Gene Florence, Moon and Star has been made in the following colors: crystal, amber, amberina, amethyst, blue, blue satin, blue opalescent, brown, cranberry opalescent, green, green satin, mint, green opalescent, milk glass, ruby, ruby satin, pink, pink satin, vaseline, vaseline satin, vaseline opalescent, and jadite.

I don't collect the satin pieces, and I have yet to find a jadite piece. I like the blue shades the best. My least favorite is the amber color.
