In 1888 the A. J. Beatty And Sons Glass Works moved to Tiffin, Ohio to start producing glass. This company through numerous ownerships, creating many styles and surviving major events finally closed for good in 1980. Throughout their history they were primarily known as the US glass company but the collectors usually refer their pieces as Tiffin glass. One such type of glass produced from the mid-1920s until about 1940 was their satin line. This line came in assorted colors, a popular color being black satin. This attractive footed compote is quite large and could serve as a nice centerpiece on the dining room table. I have seen bowls such as this example together with a pair of matching candlesticks making a nice display. The compote stands approximately 5 1/2” tall and measures 10 1/4” across the top. Thorough examination reveals no chips, cracks, damage, or repairs. I will note and as pictured two pin point spots on the outside, which appear to be minute inclusions occurring during the manufacturing process. These do not detract at all from the elegance of this piece. A splendid piece to holding fruit on the table. Thank you.
