The Hazel-Atlas Glass Company was a large producer of machine-molded glass containers headquartered in Wheeling, West Virginia. It was founded in 1902 in Washington, Pennsylvania, as the merger of four companies:
By the 1930s, Hazel-Atlas had fifteen plants and was the largest glass manufacturer in the world. Hazel-Atlas manufactured tremendous quantities of “depression” pressed glassware in a wide variety of patterns throughout the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s. They also produced many of the white milkglass “inserts” used inside zinc fruit jar lids, as well as many types of milkglass cold cream jars and salve containers. The company continued to make containers, glassware, barware and tableware into the 1960s.
Hazel-Atlas produced dozens of different patterns, with unique names. The Hazel-Atlas mark, usually placed on the back of the product, is an “A” nestled underneath an “H”. The mark was first used in 1923.
