New Glass for Seller's Cabinets

One of the most popular pieces of kitchen furniture from the turn of the century to the 1940s was the kitchen cabinet, commonly called a "Hoosier." One of the better known models was the Seller's Kitchen Cabinet. The Seller's line included a variety of custom glassware made to fit various spaces in the cabinet. Most of this glass is marked Seller's.

At least one piece of Seller's kitchen glass, a one-cup measure, has been reproduced in India. It is marked on the base as shown in the photo Fig. 1 below. right. We think that all original marks have an apostrophe in SELLER'S. The new mark does not.
