There is very little published about Brockway Glass. It is
known mainly for its making of drinking glasses with
promotional themes or glass company logos. Some are
colorful; some not. These glasses were not considered
collectible until just in the recent past. They can be very
attractive and fun to collect and still fairly inexpensive.
I have been unable to determine the beginning of production
for Brockway Glass. But, I do know that it pre-dates 1964. In
1964 Brockway purchased six Hazel-Atlas Glass factories as
part of a lawsuit settlement. Then, in 1972 it bought the
Clarksburg Hazel-Atlas plant to produce Hazel-Ware. In 1977
the Clarksburg plant was sold to Anchor Hocking. Sometime
during that period; there is a conflict of information. A pattern
named "Concord" was produced. It was documented that it
was made between 1972 - 1977. It was made to reproduce
the look of Early American Sandwich Glass. There were many
pieces to this set; glasses, soup bowls, egg plates, bowls, and
a chip and dip bowl, to name a few. I was also told that this
was used as a promotion for DUZ detergent in the 1960's.
Hence, the conflict. I do know that it was definitely made
during the 1972-1977 period, but have not been able to verify
the 1960's DUZ promotion. The pieces were available in amber
I realize that I have not been able to produce much
information on Brockway Glass. It seems that there is not
much out there. But, I will continue to research Brockway
Glass and as I find more information, I will do an update.
The only reference I can find as to what the mark of
Brockway Glass is is their logo, which is a "B".
A very nice seller on the eBay "Glass, Pottery, & Porcelain
Forum". She went out of her way to post a picture of a set,
with the original box, she personally owns.
