BROCKWAY GLASS

The Brockway facility dates back to 1907 when it was owned by Brockway Machine Bottle Co.,
which later became Brockway Glass, and merged with Owens-Illinois in 1988.


In addition to the three Brockway bottles, there is a fourth glass variation similar to the one on the left
(with more of a sloping shoulder). An 8 oz. small sized stoneware is also known debossed, W. E. Brockway.

Oakland, CA (closed in 1949)
Zanesville, OH (produced blown tumblers during the depression years, but that was the last time HA made any blown tumblers)
Wheeling, WV (This plant was still active into the CCC ownership. Some boxes of CB and MA say
Hazel-Atlas Glass Wheeling, W Va. while others say Clarksburg, W Va.)
Oklahoma City, OK (Destroyed in a 1955 tornado)
Grafton, WV (produced Atlas mason jars, sold to Brockway in 1964)

It was made by Brockway Glass 1960-1964 in amber and clear.
Concord is not a reproduction or fake;
it is a nice lacy pattern made by a relatively unknown company." quoted from www.shop4antiques.

The American Concord was  in the DUZ detergent.

The Pattern American Concord Is often confused with the Sandwich pattern that Tiara Exclusives sold. As you can see there is considerable difference.Duz was marketed by Procter & Gamble. It was a granular laundry soap with additional ingredients to make it a "heavy duty" laundry product suitable for heavily soiled clothing. It was packaged in a red carton. The soap version was discontinued in 1960 and replaced with Duz detergent.
Duz detergent (in a blue carton) was a granular laundry detergent and generally had a premium in the carton. Sometimes it was stainless steel flatware, other times it was drinking glasses. This version was discontinued in 1979.


Hazel Atlas Glass Company
(Hazel Glass Company, Continental Can Company, Brockway Glass Company)
1902 - 1987
HISTORY
The Hazel Atlas Glass Company was established in Washington, Pennsylvania in
1902 as a result of the merger of Hazel Glass Company and neighboring Atlas Glass and Metal Company (Atlas Cap Company?). Corporate offices were later established at Wheeling, West Virginia.

Eventually Hazel Atlas had factories producing machine-made pressed glass located across the United State, including Oakland, California, Buffalo, New York, and Ada, Oklahoma. Although the company's original production was utilitarian glass, in the 1920s and 1930s it became one of the largest producers of inexpensive glassware for household use.
In 1956, Continental Can Company purchased Hazel Atlas, which became the
tableware division of Continental Can Company. In 1964 Continental Can Company sold 6 Hazel Atlas factories to the Brockway Glass Company as part of a lawsuit settlement. The six plants produced mostly glass containers. In 1972, Brockway bought the Clarksburg, West Virginia, Hazel Atlas plant and continued to produce Hazel-Ware. In 1977 Brockway Glass sold the Clarksburg plant to Anchor Hocking. In 1987 Anchor Hocking closed the Clarksburg Plant.
