Pomona glass was patented by Joseph Locke at the New England Glass Co. in 1885 in the "first grind" process and he developed the "second grind" process a year later in 1886 as a less expensive method of producing this popular glass.

The "first grind", made from April 1885-June 1886, with etched background achieved by hand cutting through an acid resist leaving an uneven etched feather-like frosted effect and the "second grind", made from June 1886-1888, by which the process leaves the background of the glass with a uniform etched frosted finish. The amber and blue stained decoration was produced by using a metallic stain on the crystal that was not etched.

This lovely second grind pomona tumbler is the cornflower pattern, probably the most well known and collected. A garland of blue cornflower blossoms with amber stems and leaves completely encircle the tumbler as well as the wide scalloped border at the top. The exterior is smooth with an inverted diamond interior pattern. The tumbler measures 3 3/4" in height, 2 1/2" across the top and 2 3/8" across the base. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; staining is very good. Beautiful.
