An Eagle Eyed Look at Americana Patriotic Milk Glass Covered Dishes

Keep an Eagle Eye out for these vintage pieces of Patriotic Americana that commemorate the Spanish American War.

Learning about our country by a quick look at some vintage (circa early 1900's) patriotic/ historical/ American-history-themed milk glass figural covered dishes /product jars / candy container / mustard jars.

  • The top Eagle dish has red glass eyes
  • It was made by Westmoreland Glass
  • They made it in other colors too, and you can see in the photo of the blue dish, below, that there are eaglets on the other side.

The American Hen
  • An American Eagle with 3 eggs
  • the base/bowl is embossed THE AMERICAN HEN (so it is also a ''hen on a nest'')
  • the eggs are embossed Porto Rico, Cuba, Phillipines (referencing the Spanish-American War)
  • Attributed to the Flaccus Co., with a patent date of 1898.

Top: Remember the Maine
  • A history lesson about the Prelude to the Spanish American War.
