L.E. Smith Glass and the Moon & Stars Glass Pattern

Moon & Stars and the L.E. Smith Company

Look at the beautiful lidded candy dish pictured on the right and see if you can guess the pattern.  Most people would say that the pattern is the Moon & Stars pattern and they would be correct.  If we asked them next, who made the candy dish, most probably an argument of epic proportions would begin.  Some people would guess that glass in the Moon & Stars pattern was made by Fenton Glass; others would argue that it was made by a company called L.G. Wright; others would say it was L.E. Smith and finally some would say Weishar.  And who would be correct?  If you guessed all the answers are correct, you may be a vintage art glass aficionado.

The earliest glass pieces in the Moon & Stars pattern were originally made by a company called Adams & Company in the late19th Century.  Most of it was clear glass and not the more colorful pieces that came later as others leased the patterns or bought the molds.  In the middle to late 1930ís, L.G. Wright started reproducing pieces of glass in the Moon & Stars pattern. They continued to produce this type of glass up until 1999 when the company closed its doors for good.  Other companies also produced this pattern including Weishar, Crescent, and Imperial glass. 

However, Wright, L.E. Smith, whom we would bet most people associate Moon & Stars with, didnít start producing the pattern until the 1940ís.  L.E. Smith is one of the leaders in the pattern glass companies and was established in 1907.  Like most companies, the first glass produced by this company was clear pressed glass pieces and they didnít start producing colorful pieces of glass until the mid-1920ís.  Glass from this company in the late 20ís and early 30ís included cobalt blue glass, amethyst and amber. Some of their earliest patterns include the Melba pattern and the Mount Pleasant pattern.  L.E. Smith was purchased by William Kelman and still producing glass today.
