Information on Wakefield Glass by
Westmoreland Glass Company
Wakefield Glass  was made by Westmoreland Glass Company in
Grapeville, Pennsylvania.  Wakefield was the birth place of George
Washington, and it was started the 200th year after his birth.  
Wakefield was introduced again as a crystal glassware in 1950.  
Then in 1970’s and 1980’s  they made it with the ruby stain.  It is
much more popular with this ruby color.  You have to be careful
because this stain will come off in the dishwasher.  So please take
care of this fine crystal and hand wash it.  Some of the Wakefield
pieces are very hard to find.  Usually the price with the ruby stain
is double what the crystal glass would be.  There are about 50
different items to be found.  Westmoreland Wakefield is very
pretty at Christmas time.  This information was taken from
Collectible Glassware Antique Book from the 40’s 50’s and 60’s
Ninth Edition by Gene and Cathy Florence
