This wonderful cobalt blue vase was made by the Hazel Atlas Glass Company is marked: HA with the numbers K 851 2.
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: Hazel Glass and Metals Company, Atlas Glass Company, Wheeling Metal Plant and Republic Glass Company. By the 1930's, Hazel-Atlas had fifteen plants and was the largest glass manufacturer in the world. It continued to make containers and tableware until the 1950s. In 1956, Hazel-Atlas, at that time the third largest producer of glass containers in the U.S., was acquired by the Continental Can Company.
There is a story that the Hazel Atlas company had a large vat of cobalt blue glass left from making a planned quantity of Shirley Temple items, and decided to use it up by producing some of their other lines in cobalt blue. This is how the Moderntone pattern and Royal Lace pattern came to be produced in Deep Blue. The popularity of these lines encouraged many other Depression era glass makers to produce cobalt blue glass.
In very good condition without chips, cracks or fleabites and measures 7 1/2 inches tall, 3 1/2 inches across the rim and 2 1/2 inches across the base.
An addition to any Depression Glass, Cobalt Glass or Hazel Atlas Glass Collection.
