    The first stop this morning was Salvation Army to pick up this nice L.E. Smith vase that I left behind yesterday. It's made of molded black amethyst glass, which is their most collectable. There are noticable seams and a couple of factory flaws but no damage. These were made in two sizes 6" and 8". Nice period art deco piece from the 30's.

    LE Smith Glass Company
    Courtesy of Suziemax.com
    For over 100 years the LE Smith Glass Company has created amazing hand made, pressed glass. A testament to LE Smith Glass' patterns and products is the longevity. Where many other glass companies died during or after the depression the LE Smith Company continued to thrive.

    Headlights – History:
    LE Smith Glass not only made the first headlight lens for the Model T, but they also created incredible bowls and other pieces all of which reflected the times and people's tastes. From tableware to gifts and beyond, this firm seemed to have a sense for the pulse of America.

    The Color of the Times:
    LE Smith integrated colors into their glassware around 1925. The predominant colors were cobalt, yellow, amethyst and green. However, the one thing that really separated Smith Glass from other companies was making black glass. While it looks purple against a back-light, when set down it's black. This particular type of glass is highly collectible
