Fostoria Glass Museum Preserves Legacy

Although the factory shut in 1986 is being demolished, the legacy of Fostoria glass is being preserved at the Fostoria Glass Society of America's Museum, which has been open since 1991.

The museum in a three-story home next to the Marshall County Courthouse has examples of the Fostoria plant's handcrafted glassware and exhibits that trace the factory's rise and fall.The fact that Fostoria glass continues to be pursued by collectors worldwide is a testament to its quality.In addition to scrapping glassware with even minute flaws, Fostoria had its own testing lab check the quality of the raw materials the plant used.

Fostoria's fire-polishing finishing technique made the glassware really smooth and distinctive. The glassware was used in the White House by presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Ford and Reagan.

Fostoria's legacy of beauty includes intricately etched and cut stemware, graceful candelabras, colorful dinnerware, whimsical art glass and hand-painted vases and lamps.
