Libbey Glass Company has made many types of glass since 1888, including the cut glass and tablewares that are collected today. In the 1930s, when automated glass-making machines became popular, Libbey adapted its pattern lines and included stemware in informal designs. The stemwares of the 1930s and 1940s are once again in style. The Toledo, Ohio, firm was purchased by Owens-Illinois in 1935 and is still working under the name Libbey Incorporated. Maize is listed in its own category.
