Pattern: American Sweetheart Depression Glass Manufacturer: Macbeth Evans Glass Company Dates Manufactured:1930 to 1936 Size : 12 inches History Macbeth Evans Glass Company was formed in 1899 when two major producers of lamp chimneys joined together. The merger between Thomas Evans (whose company began in 1869) and George MacBeth (company founded in 1872) then added one other company into the mix, the American Lamp Chimney Company. By 1900 the Macbeth Evans Glass company had plants in two Pennsylvania cities – Pittsburgh and Charlotte, and three more in Ohio – Marion, Indiana and Toledo. This neatly placed Macbeth-Evans in first place for the production of lamp chimneys in the US. Tableware as such didn't appear until the mid 1920s. Macbeth Evans Glass Company began creating glassware (plain initially, just like the chimneys). Unlike some companies they would not expand into entire lines of tableware but focused on glasses exclusively for their domestic focus. Five years later they began production on colored stemware lines, many of which continue to be popular including ruby red, Cremax beige, Monax white, crystal, and Ritz blue. Some of the patterns for which to watch include American Sweetheart, Petalware, Thistle and Dogwood. These came out before Corning Glass Works acquired Macbeth-Evans in the late 1930s. Even after acquisition the name of the company remained intact until nearly 1950.
