Vintage Phoenix Company White Milk Glass Hurricane Lamp with Rose Motif.
The Phoenix Glass Company was formed in 1880 in Monaca, Pennsylvania by Andrew Howard and W. I. Miller. Around 1893, they showcased their new electric light bulbs at the Chicago World's Fair and went on to produce lamps, globes, shades and electric light bulbs. During the 1880's and 1890's they produced a large volume of colored cut glass, etched glass, hand decorated glass, and fancy colored art glass, such as mother-of-pearl satin glass which they patented in 1885. Sculptured Art Glass which they produced from 1933 to 1958. This glass was hand blown into special molds which had mold joints following the pattern in the glass to avoid obvious mold lines. These patterns had bold designs raised up very prominently from the background. Contrasting colors were applied either to the background or the relief designs, and then fired or baked onto the glass at temperatures over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. Anchor Hocking took over Phoenix Glass in 1970.
