My Weekly Score: Moderntone Soup Bowls

We had a little surprise waiting for us this week: one of our older listings sold for a nice amount of money. It was a great lesson in patience and how having a little bit of it can really make all the difference in the world.

What you see below is a set of four cream soup bowls from the Hazel Atlas Glass Company. They are made of a gorgeous cobalt blue colored glass and have a handle on each side, plus a ribbed pattern across the outside of the bowl. The pattern name is “Moderntone.”

This pattern was produced in West Virginia and Ohio between 1934 and 1942. It was also produced in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

We got a whole set of these dishes for around $75. We haven’t sold them all yet, but we’ve more than doubled our money already. These four bowls alone brought in $60. Yay!

I love anything in this beautiful cobalt color. What about you? Do you have a favorite color of glassware?
