Tiffin Glass Madeira Cornsilk Sherbet

Tiffin Glass - Glassware

Tiffin is a popular United States glass manufacturer with a history dating back to 1888 with A. J. Beatty & Sons and the U. S. Glass Company. The company was purchased by Interpace and produced a line of glassware (Madeira) to complement the Franciscan dinnerware patterns. The final end came to the company in 1980 when production ceased. I also carry some of Tiffin's apothecary jars, Moon & Stars punch bowl/cups, and King's Crown glassware.


Candy/Apothecary Jars

Tiffin (aka U.S. Glass) made containers for other companies. Some held soaps; others, candy. I lump those items together here.
