was made by the Anchor Hocking Glass Corporation using a formula that produced
durable, heat-proof glassware. Some pieces were embossed with the name Fire-King, and others carried identifying labels.
Fire-King colors included Jade-ite, Azur-ite, Turquoise Blue, Sapphire Blue, Ivory, Royal Ruby, Forest Green, and Milk White,
along with many fired-on colors and decorations. This page features vintage Anchor Hocking glassware.

Examples of Fire-King Glassware|
|Jadite Saucer This saucer is the St. Denis shape. Each saucer measures just under 6" across. The saucers are curved up at the edge, so each measures about 1" tall at the rim. They are marked "Oven Fire-King Ware Made in U.S.A."|
|Turquoise Blue Turquoise blue is an opaque, light blue color. The square ashtray came in several sizes.|
|Ivory The ivory color was made in dinnerware and kitchenware; plain and decorated. This covered jar was decorated with a dot design.|
|White Yellowstone Souvenir Lace Edge Compote This pretty little compote (footed bowl) measures 3" tall and is 5-1/4" across the top. The top of the compote is flat with a lacy edge. The compote bowl has a Yellowstone Park decal showing features like Old Faithful, Fishing Bridge, Bears, and Buffalo. The compote is NOT signed fire-king. This compote is illustrated on page 53 of "Anchor Hocking's Fire-King and More, Second Edition" by Gene Florence.|
