One popular brand to look for is Viking Ware. The makers of Viking glassware opened in 1901 in New Martinsville, West Virginia  as the New Martinsville Glass Company.  It produced items for the boudoir such as perfume bottles, vanity jars, dresser sets, etc. They also made a line of lamps, smoking and liquor sets and became renowned for the use of color in their glassware.  In 1944, the company was renamed Viking Glass.  These vintage candy dishes are highly collectible and because they’re made in USA, are being sought after and their prices are on the rise.  Having some tidbit information about the history of the company, let’s move on to see her stylish candy dish scored at an estate sale on the beautiful Lake Murray in South Carolina.
