VASELINE GLASS MANUFACTURERS

Vaseline Glass was made by a variety of makers, both during the victorian times and in modern times. The following list tells something about the a few of the makers and their glassware. This list is by no means complete, but just a brief history of a few of the more popular companies to produce Vaseline Glass.  We have tried to add a picture under the description of the various glass makers to show some of the patterns made. (If you have a good photo of one of the manufacturers that have no photo displayed, please send it to the email address below and we will try to add it!)
