Vintage Floragold glassware is a pattern of glassware produced by the American manufacturer the Jeannette Glass Company.

History & Description

Floragold was one of the company’s most popular glassware patterns and was produced from 1950 to 1954. Its floral, feminine and pretty design made it the ideal kitchenware for prosperous households in post-war America. It came in 32 piece dinner sets which included a creamer, a lidded sugar and long butter dish, tumblers, cups and saucers, plates and a platter. The company also produced a water pitcher, large salad bowl, a vase and a fluted candy dish in the pattern.

Collectors should take note that the pattern is not a Depression Glass. While The Jeannette Glass Co. was one of America’s leading manufacturers of Depression Glass during the 1920s and 1930s, Floragold was produced in the early-1950s.

Guide for collectors

Vintage Floragold glassware is becoming more and more collectible and prices are steadily increasingly, especially hard to find accessory pieces such as the vase and punch bowl.

Collectors should take note that the pattern is almost identical to an earlier Carnival Glass pattern manufactured by Westmoreland Glass Company, known as Louisa. This is because the Jeannette Glass Company purchased the Louisa moulds prior to releasing the Floragold pattern. This is particularly useful when searching online, as eBay regularly advertises the two patterns on the same product.
