DEW DROP & STAR OPEN SALT DISH!IN 1947 JOHN & ELIZABETH DEGENHART OPENED THE CRYSTAL ART GLASS FACTORY IN CAMBRIDGE, OHIO. JOHN HAD WORKED FOR THE COMPANY BEFORE HE BECAME THE OWNER AND WAS KNOWN FOR HIS EXCELLENT PAPERWEIGHTS. AFTER JOHN DIED IN 1964, ELIZABETH TOOK OVER THE MANAGEMENT OF THE FACTORY AND FROM 1864 TO 1974, MORE THAN 27 NEW MOLDS WERE CREATED, MOST RESULTING FROM ELIZABETH’S CREATIVITY, AND OVER 145 OFFICIAL COLORS WERE DEVELOPED. ELIZABETH DIED IN 1978 AND LEFT THE REQUEST THAT THE 10 MOLDS THAT SHE HAD BUILT BE TURNED OVER TO THE DEGENHART MUSEUM. THE REMAINING MOLDS WERE HELD BY THE ISLAND MOULD AND MACHINE COMPANY AND THE FAMILIAR “D IN A HEART” TRADEMARK WAS REMOVED. ORIGINAL DEGENHART PIECES WERE UNMARKED, ALTHOUGH SOMETIMES HAND-STAMPED WITH A “D”, BUT IN THE 70’S THEY WERE MARKED WITH THE “D IN THE HEART”. PIECES MADE FOR THE MUSEUM HAD A “D” IN HEART WITH A LINE UNDER IT. BOYD NEVER MADE UNMARKED PIECES WITH DEGEHART MOLDS AND NEVER USED THE DEGENHART TRADEMARK.
I RECENTLY ACQUIRED SEVERAL PIECES OF SIGNED DEGENHART, ALL IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND QUITE A VARIETY. LISTED TODAY IS A PRETTY OPEN FOOTED DISH, MEASURES ABOUT 3 1/4″ ACROSS AND IS THE DEW DROP & STAR PATTERN. IT IS A SOFT DUSTY PIN/PEACH COLOR AND IS CLEARLY SIGNED IN THE BOTTOM WITH THE “D IN A HEART”.
