If you are looking for an article about the Pilgrims that came to America and introduced us to the
Thanksgiving holiday, you are at the wrong place. This article is about Pilgrim Glassworks of West Virginia. This company was situated
in the state that also brought us Blenko Glass, Fenton Glass, and West Virginia Glass. Pilgrim Glassworks however, is not as
old as those other venerable companies, but just as admired by collectors. Pilgrim made their mark by specializing in crackle glass
and cranberry glass.

Cameoware was produced by the Harker Company beginning in the 1945. They used a process of sandblasting to imprint the design onto a pottery piece. These pieces were usually produced in blue or pink with a white imprint of the design, usually a flower or rose. These pieces aside from being sold and marketed by other companies were later sold through the Montgomery Ward stores.
When collecting Cameoware, here are some things to keep in mind. First, it was produced from 1945 until the mid-1970s; so many pieces are still in existence. The most collectible and sought after pieces were artistically designed by Russell Wright and George Bauer. Cameoware can usually be found in at Estate Sales, Antique Shows and Flea Markets and prices can range from $10 for a dish to more than $145 for a rolling pin.
