Recently many of my friends in Japan have been asking me about Fire-king glassware. Random, huh? That's what I thought at first, anyway. But over the past few months, more people have starting asking me what I know about Fire-king and what I think about it - why the interest?
I can honestly say I don't know very much about Fire-king. I think it was popular here in the United States during the Depression because it was a less expensive alternative to the fine china preferred during more properous times. However, I don't see Fire-king dishes around too much these days - other than a few original pieces in my grandmother's house.
Overall, Fire-king is a bit obscure - and so I wonder how in the world it became such a collectors craze all the way over in Japan. Can anyone explain?
