Erickson Glass was founded by Carl Erickson and his brother in 1943 in Bremen, Ohio. Carl and his brother were Swedish immigrants from a family of master glassblowers. Carl worked for Pairpoint Glass for 20 years as a designer, and from there worked at Libbey and as an instructor and designer at Blenko prior to buying the Bremen property. His modern designs, perfectly executed, are highly prized and collectible.
This controlled bubble folded rim ashtray is in Erickson's signature green with perfectly spaced bubbles graduating in size from large to very tiny from the rim to the base. It has 3 indents in the rim and a ground and polished pontil. It measures just under 6" in diameter, stands 2 1/8" high at the rim, and weighs a hefty 2 1/4 lbs. It's in excellent, unused condition.
