This bowl was made sometime between 1950 and 1956.
Anchor Hocking Glass Company was established in 1905 in Lancastor, PA and was well known by the mid 1920s for its tumbler and tableware production. Its Fire-King production line came in a variety of colors and patterns. In 1937, Hocking Glass Company merged with Anchor Cap and Closur Corporation, Long Island City, N.Y., creating the huge Anchor-Hocking Glass Company, which continued to have a major impact on the glassware industry.
