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 foil labels. Fire-King colours included Jade-ite, Azur-ite, ROSE-ite, Turquoise Blue, Sapphire Blue, Ivory, Royal Ruby, Forest Green, and Milk White, along with many fired-on colors and decorations. The script and details included in the back-stamp varied in information, script, and case through time for Anchor-Hocking useful for dating items.
Molds were used until the embossed information needed to be updated or until the information was no longer legible. The stylized "H-over-Anchor" logo - introduced in 1937 - was phased-out for the "boxed anchor" by 1977 - the new logo began to appear in 1968 - BUT - it took a while for all molds to be replaced with the new embossing. Not all pieces were embossed with a logo.
