Akro Agate Carmel Slag Vase

Details

The Akro Agate Company, perhaps the best known of the marble manufacturers and certainly the most prolific during most of their career, was formed in 1910 in Akron, Ohio, by George T. Rankin and Gilbert C. Marsh. The 1930s saw some troubles for Akro Agate, as some of their key employees resigned at the beginning of the decade. Some of these went on the form the Master Marble Company. Sales of marbles declined everywhere toward the latter years of the decade and slowed even more in the subsequent decade. Akro began producing other glass objects during this period, including ashtrays, powder jars, jardinières, vases, decorative flower pots, candlesticks, bowls, dishes, and more. These met with moderate success. Their line of colorful children's dishes did not sell well at first, but with the onset of America's involvement in World War II and the concomitant halt of imported Japanese toys they soon became more popular. However, this diversification did not pull Akro Agate from its decline, and by 1951 it closed down for good.

This piece is considered Carmel color, I believe and has the Made in USA on bottom with the N and S and backwards stamped. I am seeing the # 6 and think this may be the 658 model.

This old piece has held up brilliantly. Please give it a new home to hold mathces, toothpicks, roses from the garden, you toenail clippers! It's fantastic in shape and lasted this long!! I didn't know the vases were a throw-off of the marble era. How great. Now I know what to look for in mom's old marble collection - YEA!

Measures 4 1/2" high and 4 3/4" @ mouth with a 3" base.

Love the unique history.

I will include the shipping on this piece.

Any questions, please ask.
