Molds of L.G. Wright:By

Molds of L.G. Wright:

the complete auction buyer's list

On May 27, 1999, approximately 700 molds of the closed L.G. Wright Glass Company were sold at auction. Below is a complete list of ALL Wright mold buyers. The list appears through a special arrangement with Johanna Billings who attended the auction and compiled the list with information provided to her by the auctioneer.

This list is important because, with minor exceptions, molds went to buyers who intend to use them for commercial production. Of most concern should be that two reproduction wholesalers, AA Imports of St. Louis, MO and Castle Reproductions of Hawely, PA, bid jointly to buy 147 molds. Reproduction glassware currently sold by these two firms is unmarked and pieces made in their Wright molds will likely be unmarked as well.

Although the balance of the molds were purchased by Fenton, Mosser and other makers who do permanently mark their glass, future pieces from Wright molds will still create confusion unless a clear record of mold ownership is made public.

The most prominent non-commercial bidder was the National Milk Glass Collectors Society (NMGCS) which purchased 11 molds. According to Dee Sacherich, NMGCS Treasurer, the molds will be used to produce club commemoratives and will be fully marked.

Confusing patterns since the 1930s

Wright's glass and the molds that made it, have caused confusion and controversy among antique collectors ever since the company was founded in 1937 by Lawrence "Si" Wright. That's because Wright, unlike any other glass company at the time, based its entire line on reproductions and reissues of antique patterns and shapes.

Wright, who at one time had only the word "Antiques" on his business card was one of the first to capitalize on American interest in early pattern glass. By 1938 Wright had new molds designed to make at what that time were reproductions of some of the most popular antique patterns including Baltimore Pear, Daisy and Button, Lion, Three Face and Westward Ho. Wright Glass continued to specialize in reproductions and reissues until it closed in 1998.

The majority by far of Wright's glass was made from new molds, not original molds. All Wright's Three Face, Westward Ho, and Maize for example, are from new molds. However, Wright did own and use a number of original molds from the old Northwood and Dugan Glass companies (Argonaut, Cherry, Pony, Stork and Rushes, etc).

Although it owned the molds, the Wright company never mixed glass or pressed any glass. Molds were jobbed out for the actual working to a variety of glass factories including Fenton, Mosser, Westmoreland, Gibson, Summit, Viking and others.

Summary

Interest in Wright glass was stimulated by The L. G. Wright Glass Company, James Measell & W.C. "Red' Roetteis" (© 1997, Antique Publications, 192 pages, $34.95). Until the auction of the molds, some Wright glass–particularly lamps and other pieces made for Wright by Fenton–were attracting collectors' notice and prices were on the rise.

Due to space considerations, not all parts and pieces sold as molds have been included in the list below. Where a pattern was not known, a descriptive generic name has been used.

Some authors use the word "mould" rather than "mold". Mould is how the word is spelled in England; mold is the more common American usage. Either is correct.

Catalog Page A Wright's Thistle was copied from Paneled Thistle, a pattern originally introduced by Higbee Glass in the early 1900s. All of Wright's Thistle has been made since 1948 in in new molds. Over forty Wright shapes were made. Many shapes, like a handled basket, candleholder, fairy lamp, salt dip and others, were never produced in the original line. Many, but not all, of Wright's Thistle reproductions include a confusing copy of a molded bee with wings spread which is nearly identical to the original Higbee trademark. Catalog page ca. 1972.

image

Catalog Page B Wright began reproducing the Westward Ho pattern from new molds as early as 1937. Many of Wright's 13 shapes such as the oil lamp and tumbler were never made in the original line.The original pattern was introduced by Gillinder Glass Company around 1879. Gillinder's name for the pattern was Pioneer. Catalog page ca. 1972.

image

Catalog Page C Original Three Face was first made by Duncan Glass (Duncan & Sons) in 1878. Wright began making look-alikes in new molds in the 1930s. Eventually Wright made Three Face copies in 14 shapes; twelve of those are shown in this catalog page. Like other Victorian patterns Wright copied, the Wright Three Face was made in a number of shapes that never existed in the original line such as the massive sugar shaker seen third from left in the bottom row. Catalog page ca. 1972.
