In this day of rising costs and a shorter supply of cash, we are concentrating on the best buy for our pocket book. I, for one, am sometimes amazed at the spiraling cost of both new and older articles of antiques, glass, collectibles and almost all items bought today. This brings to my attention several ads that I found Duncan & Miller had placed back in 1937.
There were a series of five specials, which were advertised for wedding gifts, anniversary and special occasions.
Other items made in the Radiance pattern consisted of vases, candlesticks, ash trays, 8", 9" and 12" bowls, punch sets and also some blown water pitchers, 12 and 14 ounce ice tea glasses, 10 ounce tumblers, 7 ounce old fashioned glass, 5 ounce orange juice, two sizes of rose bowls (9" and 6" were available). Yellow, pink and blue opalescent pitcher sets were made in the early forties. We have seen several of the opalescent sets at the recent Duncan Glass Show in Washington, PA, and a lovely cobalt blue that was magnificent. The number made in Cobalt was limited as were the opalescent. It certainly verifies the fact that regardless of price, Duncan & Miller made The Loveliest Glassware in America.
