Another interesting exhibit was that of the Fry Glass Co., who showed their entire line of oven glass in the pearlware. Probably one of the most popular items was that of their coffee percolator and tea pot, all glass with the vacuum handle both of which, bubbled over on an electric hot plate from nine in the morning to ten o'clock, at night. Some of the women shoppers gasped when a salesman, poured cold water into either of them while the water was bubbling and showed consternation when the glass didn't break. They also displayed a new covered roaster which is large enough to take a leg of lamb or a large sized chicken. Several nibbles on a lemonade set, made in either "golden glow" or crystal, showed that buyers are beginning to think of the days in the future when the glass may soar to ninety in the shade. These are shown in crackled effect ware.
