Flame Glass

Over the decades there have been many different types of decorative glass pieces, many handed down in the families. One other type is known as ‘Flame Glass.’

They were tall vases in vibrant colors, oddly shaped ashtrays, and exotic-looking bottles and vases. Flame glass was popular in the 1960s with its unique designs. The pieces often blended multiple colors of glass together, with the most striking pieces in unusual shapes that came to points or were draped in elegant folds.

Flame glass from the ’60s and ’70s catered to a much more practical audience and was very durable, being they were a heavier weight.

Many of the flame glassware were vases in a long stem format.
