About Chocolate Glass
Chocolate glass, sometimes
mistakenly called caramel slag, was originally made in America by Jake Rosenthal
at the Indiana Tumbler and Goblet Company of Greentown, Indiana, from 1900
to 1903 in the Cactus and other patterns.
It was also made at National
Glass Company factories.
Fenton Art Glass Company
first made Chocolate glass from 1907 to 1915. During the Spring-Summer
of 1982, Fenton produced Chocolate glass (CK) for Levay Distributing Company.
In May 1982, a few Chocolate items including the 8223-CK Leaf and Orange
Tree Rose Bowl, 8428-Ck Butterfly and Berry Bow, and 9463-CK Nativity Bell
were made as turn work. Fenton produced a nice Chocolate glass assortment
illustrated with a color sheet. Not illustrated on this sheet, but
listed in Fenton records, were the two very rare Fenton Cactus Chocolate
items for Levay: the 3463-CK Cruet with Stopper and the 3480-CK 8" Candy
(Cracker) Jar, both shown above.
