Collectors of Findlay Glass

What is Findlay Glass?

It all started with the discovery of natural gas in the Findlay area in 1884. The great gas boom was underway, which attracted 16 glass works to the area. There were at least five factories that made tableware in Findlay, Ohio.

  • Columbia Glass Company
  • Bellaire Goblet Company
  • Dalzell, Gilmore, and Leighton
  • Model Flint Glass Company
  • Findlay Flint Glass Company

More than 200 patterns are identified as having been made in Findlay. Glass that has survived more than 100 years is very collectible!
