Akro Agate was a glass company the produced novelty type glass as well as children's pieces during the 30s-50s in Clarksburg WV. They produced like I mentioned child's tea sets and similar pieces and what they called their General Line. That consisted of various size flower pots of many different shapes, vases, planters, ash trays, advertising pieces, and on and on.
Mainly in endless slag colors and combinations, some common and other very rare. There is club that meets every years in Clarksburg area in July. The factory site still exists but only a holding tank of some type is still there. The grounds around the factory are littered with fragments of this glass to this day and fun to dig around. Its a great greoup to belong to!
We have a large collection of this stuff too in all sorts of pieces and colors.
