LANCASTER GLASS CO.
July of 2008 will mark the 100th anniversary of the inception of the Lancaster Glass Company. Even though it is sometimes referred to as one of the minor glass companies, Lancaster's Plant #2 is still in operation today under the auspices of the Anchor Hocking Glass Corporation in Lancaster, Ohio. In addition, the Hocking Glass Company throughout the 1940s, '50s and '60s used many of the molds that were originally made by Lancaster for some of its lines. Hocking acquired controlling interest in the Lancaster Glass Company in 1924 and eventually dissolved the Lancaster name by 1937 after completing the final purchase. However, the name Lancaster and their exquisitely-made pieces live on.
