Brody Glass: A short explanation:

Brody Glass was first produced for The E.O.Brody Company which was founded in 1958 in Cleveland, Ohio, by Ernest Oscar Brody. Mr Brody was known as EO in the florists' trade. His innovative idea was to sell utility glass floral containers exclusively to florists and to market them through wholesale florists who in turn would sell to retail florists. Initially he started the company with only four flower vases/containers in his portfolio. These were made by US glass manufacturers using EO's own molds marked with the company name.

In 1971 the "E.O. Brody Company" was taken over by Lancaster Colony Corporation of Columbus, Ohio. In 1988 the company merged with Lancaster Colony's housewares division, headquartered in Cincinnati. At this point in time the company name was changed to "Brody Company."

The "Brody Company" continues to market glass utility floral containers and a small number of upscale vases exclusively to wholesale florists for redistribution to retail florists.

E.O. Brody/Brody Company products are mostly inexpensive, mass-produced, vases, bowls, and flower pots. The company made or commissioned a large volume of milk glass and green glass pieces, selling for 50 cents to a dollar. They also sold brown glass and clear glass with a red painted surface. They even imported crystal vases from Turkey, which were marked with a paper label "Made in Turkey for E.O.Brody Company" (see below). E.O.Brody and his wife are now retired.





Brody items come up for sale at garage sales and on auction sites like ebay, which give a good indication of prices (still low). No doubt they will become collectible items one day, like so many other mass-produced glass items from the past. The fact that they are clearly marked will eventually add to their value.
