L. E. Smith

L. E. Smith

Lewis E. Smith bought an abandoned glass factory in Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania in 1907. He purchased this factory to produced bottles for a mustard recipe he had developed while working as a chef in the Mount Pleasant area. Smith became so caught up in glass making that by 1911 that the L.E. Smith Company was already becoming a house-hold name. Lewis Smith invented the glass top for percolators, the modern style reamer, the first glass mixing bowl, and quite a few other kitchen items. Soon after this time period Mr. Smith left the company to pursue other interests, but the Smith name was retained. In the mid-20s. L.E. Smith produced an array of colors including amber, amethyst, blue, canary. Collectors recognize L. E. Smith for the large line of black or ebony Depression Era glassware produced during the 1930's. Most of the pieces made in black were made in cobalt as well. Some of these items may also be found in white milk glass. The two best known Depression Glass patterns made by the L.E. Smith company are Melba, and Mount Pleasant. In addition, Smith is noted for kitchen items and for the large King-Fish Aquarium that was made in green and crystal. Smith is also well known for private mold work in the area of vanity items such as powder jars and lamps. Many powder jars were made for numerous cosmetic companies and lamp parts were produced for assembly by lamp manufacturers. Sometimes, the lamps may have been assembled from parts produced by different glass companies. The terrier lamp pictured above has a Smith base combined with a Petalware shade made by MacBeth Evans.
