Antique 1920s Bonbon Candy Dish Basket Janice Pattern Crystal Clear by New Martinsville Glass Company Elegant Depression Glass Tableware


This is a fabulous antique art glass elegant glass Basket or Bonbon, Candy, or Trinket Dish from New Martinsville Glass Company in the lovely Janice pattern and crystal/clear depression glass. Crafted in West Virginia, USA; New Martinsville produced the Janice pattern from 1926. Measures 6 1/4 inches in width by 2 5/8 inches in height.

"The Janice line (#4500) was introduced by the New Martinsville Glass Company (later renamed the Viking Glass Company) in 1926. Though initially only available in crystal (clear) glass blanks, the Janice line was eventually available in a large range of colours. In total, about 65 different items were made under the line, including candlesticks, candy dishes, tableware, condiment sets, sherbet glasses and goblets. The line was discontinued in 1970."

Condition: This piece from New Martinsville is in excellent vintage condition with little to no signs of wear; the glass is crystal clear, shiny and of a higher quality. On the base of the dish, there are some imperfections (ridges and bubbles in the glass) characteristic of the pressed/pattern glass construction. This art glass piece displays unparalleled attention to detail and the classic aesthetic of a bygone era. Please refer to the pictures as they are a part of the description. If you have any concerns about the condition or you require more detail I can provide additional photographs on request.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

Most vintage and antique glassware should be hand washed only and not in the dishwasher; especially any pieces with graphics or colourful patterns, for example Pyrex, Fire King, Glasbake, Corelle, drinkware, etc. Dishwashers can dull the finish on these unique pieces and cause premature wear to the surface and patterns or cause what is known as DWD or Dishwasher Damage which is irreversible. It's always better to be safe and wash by hand if you can.

Add some dish washing liquid into a sink or basin and add warm water. Placing a towel underneath can help to avoid breakage. It is best to use a damp cloth for any pieces with hand-painted decorations to preserve the art as even regular hand-washing can degrade these over time.

Does your store offer local pick-ups?

Absolutely! If you would like to coordinate a local pick-up in Durham Region you may either purchase the items and send a note after the fact to request a pick-up and we will then refund your shipping costs; or you can send a message prior to the order to request the local pick-up and we can remove the shipping costs on the items you wish to purchase. Ordering the items immediately will guarantee availability; this is the ideal method to ensure your selection(s) are not purchased by someone else in the interim, in case we do not respond to your inquiry soon enough (we will respond within 24 hours; however, we may not be available at the exact moment of your message)
