Don’t you wonder how glass companies came up with the pattern names they used? Some are obvious, like Miss America or Queen Mary. Some match the pattern with the name. Think of Block Optic. Or Adam’s Rib, like this pink candy jar.
Diamond Glass made Adam’s Rib in the late 1920s in a rainbow of colors. I’ve seen (and sold) amber and pink. Today I saw a few pieces of pink at a local antique mall. Diamond made a lovely medium blue and green that so far have not come my way, plus they tried different decorations like metal trims or iridescence.
You can see the pattern is a wide band of narrow ribs. The ribs are rounded and there is a ridge running parallel with the rim. Yes, it’s pretty obvious why this got the name Adam’s Rib!
If you enjoy these blog parties then please plan to join me Thursday evenings for Fancy Fridays. Pick out something fancy and fun and come join us. I’ll bring the glass!
