Hazel Atlas Glass

              In 1936, The Hazel Atlas glass company applied for and subsequently received a patent for a process of glass known as Platonite. This process consisted of an opaque glassware that would be treated with various finishes. Platonite is often confused with milkglass, an antique glass process.

As you can see in the photographs, the white glass was treated with a 'fired-on' color or decoration. Platonite, primararily was produced in the 1940s and 1950s. On some early pieces of Hazel Atlas Platonite instead of the commnly found (HA) Hazel Atlas mark., the word 'PLATONITE' is found.

This picture shows a creamer and sugar in the Ovide pattern with a yellow and black fired on treatment. The glass is Platonite, the pattern is ovide and the name is 'Sunrise'.

Values for Platonite are relevant to the particular pattern or finished treatment and vary greatly.
