Alfredo
(516 items)

ONE ADVANTAGE OF FRY COVERED CASSEROLES IS THAT THE THE COVER HAS THE SAME NUMBER AS THE PIECE. I HAVE NOTICED THAT THERE IS A STEADY SUPPLY OF COVERS FOR SALE, SO ALL YOU HAVE TO DO WITH A COVERLESS PIECE IS WATCH FOR THE MATCHING COVER TO APPEAR.

THE FRY COMPANY WAS FOUNDED IN 1902, AND SOON IT BECAME FAMOUS FOR HAVING CREATED THE LARGEST CUT GLASS VASE UP TO THAT POINT. SOON THEY MOVED TO THE PRODUCTION OF OVEN WARE.

TOM FELT''S MONOGRAPH FOR THE WVMAG, IS QUITE USEFUL, BECAUSE IT RETRACES THE STORY OF FRY'S EACH INNOVATION THROUGH REVIEWS IN TRADE JOURNALS, AND PATENTS, AND THE FINANCIAL PROBLEMS LEADING TO ITS DEMISE. OPALESCENT OVEN GLASS WAS PATENTED IN 1921, WHICH MAKES SURVIVING PIECES 93 YEARS OLD.

1932-08 OVAL CASSEROLE IN MY FAVORITE METAL HOLDER.
1932-9,8: THE SAME SHAPE IN TWO SIZWS, WITH METAL HOLDERS.
1918-13. LARGE OVAL PLATTER, AS YOU CAN TELL, A SUPERB TABLE PIECE.
1918-13- HERE IT IS, HOLDING SOME BUTTERMILK FRIED CHICKEN.

    Today I used pork chops, but breaded. It does not work as well in terms of the frying. Flour is best.

    I just love the way the finial catches the light. Thank you for sharing, I hadn't thought about trying to find a nice holder for the covered oval that I have.

    Holders are extremely rare to find by themselves, unlike the tops.

    Thank you. would it have to be a holder made by Fry or could I get lucky and find that my oval was a standard size used at the time by several companies? I am a Polyanna at heart.;0)

    I'm not particular about mix and match, but I do not know anyother ovenglass companies with metal holders (Pyrex and Corning come to mind).

    Good Morning Alfredo,
    I will measure my oval and tuck the info in my bag. Perhaps one of the outdoor shows or markets will provide something. If not I will have fun looking. :0)

    News: I'll be publishing on Fry for the Art Glass Journal of the West Virginia Museum of American Glass.
