Crafted in Our Home State!
We're so proud to have found this stand right in our home state of Ohio, where a family-owned and -operated business makes some of the most beautiful glassware we've seen. Their classic designs and careful craftsmanship may just remind you of a different era.
How It's Made
Each piece is made following a time-honored method of pressing glass – from using cast iron molds to polishing and annealing (which the latter takes 3.5 hours alone). The results are stunning!
How to Care for Your Mosser Glassware
How you handle your glassware is important and will help protect it for years to come. Avoiding mechanical and thermal shock is essential. Here are a few tips from Mosser Glass:
- Avoid glass to glass contact. If putting away your item on a shelf, do not allow the glass to touch. Avoid stacking as well.
- Avoid quick changes in temperature. If it is cold from either being stored in a cool location or from just being washed, don't immediately fill it with hot liquids. Wait a moment until your Mosser Glass item is at room temperature before filling with a hot pot of coffee or tea. (Thermal shock happens from quick temperature changes - from hot to cold or cold to hot - causing your item to stress and crack or even break.)
- Avoid the misuse of the microwave. Do not heat or use glass containers for heating food packaged in heat concentrated materials (such as popcorn).
- Don't add metal or tableware into glassware. Use plastic or nylon utensils to cook. Sharp knives or utensils can scratch and weaken the refractory.
- Clean with mild detergent and water. Let glassware reach room temperature before washing. Use nylon or plastic sponge to avoid scratches.
