Many glass companies which were flourishing during the Depression are no longer in existence, but a few are.

Corning Glassware is still with us. Fondly known as GLW for short.

Fenton Glass

If you know of any other glass companies that were started either before or during the Depression which are still around, please add a comment.

The link about the history of Anchor Hocking also mentioned Libbey Glass which has been around for a VERY long time. I had no idea it was such an old company.
