charming charm

pioneer woman says she "dreams in charm"... i must admit, i do the same. it is my very favorite glassware to collect. it looks very modern, yet is vintage.

"charm" was made by Anchor Hocking for their Fire King brand in the 1950s. it is easily identified by its square shape. although i collect the jadite, it was made in three other colors: azurite (pale blue), forest green and royal ruby. only some of the azurite and jadite pieces were given the Fire King stamp on the bottom... finding a stamped charm is like discovering sunken treasure!

the charm pattern comes with many pieces: cup & saucers, creamer & open sugar bowl, luncheon plates, salad/dessert plates, soup bowls, dessert bowls, and a platter.
