The Belmont Tumbler Company

The Belmont Tumbler Company is a little known glass company that was located in Bellaire, Ohio. This company was destroyed in 1952 when a fire burned the factory to the ground along with all the company records. The Depression Era pattern that this company is most noted for is Rose Cameo. It has long been believed that Bowknot was also made by Belmont. The quality and color of Bowknot seem to suggest that this is true, but no concrete proof exists to prove this. Pieces of Belmont production can be found in marigold iridescent, amber, green, pink, and crystal.

Belmont Patterns and Shapes
Belmont Rose Cameo -(1931) (Green)

Rose Cameo was produced by The Belmont Tumbler Company. This pattern is very similar to Hocking's Cameo pattern, but it has a rose inside the embossed cameo instead of a girl. If you count both footed styles of tumblers separately, there are only seven pieces to this set. Three of these are bowls in various sizes. Cameo Rose is hard to find, but it is quite popular.


Belmont "Ships" Plate -(1930s) (Crystal, Green, Marigold Iridescent)

Belmont made this "Ships" 8" diameter plate. We have seen this pretty plate in iridescent and green. It has an embossed crackle glass border with an embossed "Santa Maria" style merchant ship in the center. An ad for this plate may be seen in the 1926 Butler Brothers catalog.


Belmont Swan Covered Box on Basketweave Base --(Late 1800s) (Blue, Crystal)

The swan covered dish / box was attributed to The Belmont Glass Company by Everett Grist in his book "Covered Animal Dishes". It is a perfect size to use as a powder, trinket, or candy box. It was sold as a covered box, so its usefulness is entirely at the discretion of its owner.


Belmont Stork Baby Plate - (1926) (Marigold Iridescent over Crystal)

This baby plate is shown in a Butler Brothers catalog ad from 1926. Plates like these were often given as baby gifts. This plate features the alphabet on the plate rim. An embossed stork in the plate center is surrounded by the numbers 1 through 10. This 7.5" diameter deep plate is found in golden iridescent over a crystal base.


Belmont Crackle Glass Plates - (1927) (Crystal, Green, Canary)

Many companies made crackle glass. Belmont had their own version of embossed-style crackle glass plates. Plates can be found with additional embossed decorations of flowers, or a clipper ship. The plain "Crackle" glass plates were made in 2 sizes in crystal, canary, and amber. See the ad from the 1926 Butler Brothers catalog. It is not known what other pieces of crackle Belmont may have had. Information on Belmont is scarce since most of the records were destroyed when the company burned.
