Master Glass Company - Clarksburg?

Recommended Posts


A friend gave me a bag of Master Glass cat's eye marbles.  The dates:  Master Marble Company, Clarksburg, West Virginia, 1930 – 1941 ... Master Glass, Bridgeport, West Virginia 1941 – 1974.

My bag says Master Glass, CLARKSBURG, WV.    I read... In 1941 the company reorganized.  The Master Marble Co. closed and the Master Glass Co. was started in the nearby community of Bridgeport WV under the sole ownership of Clinton Israel. Is this an early bag?  WHEN did Masgter Glass Co. start making cat's eyes?  Too bad the bag is cloudy!  But it is a GREAT GIFT!

That's an interesting question. 

I'm going to guess the answer to the Clarksburg address on the Master Glass label has something to do with where offices were.  

I say with some confidence that the cat's eye bags weren't introduced until the 1950's.
