Stangl's Antique Gold, introduced during the 1950s, is gaining rapidly in popularity across the nation. The earliest pieces were fashioned with a textured, hand-formed appearance. The green copper stain was applied heavily under the glaze, giving a black oxidized effect under the brushed gold luster.
Antique Gold with cobalt blue under the gold is much
more elusive than items brushed with copper green.
By the late 1950s, elegant shapes
were more in vogue.
Some items are much more desirable
than others. Do you know which?
Several artware lines were

Irene Sarnecki also developed
some artware finishes.
