Custard glass became popular in the United States in the 1890s after being introduced abroad more than a decade prior to that. Souvenir glass commemorating travel destinations and historically significant dates or events were also made of custard glass around the turn of the 20th century. By and large, the original custard glass was made through the 1920s, but rarely thereafter as transparent glass became favored by consumers.

This is a nice, vintage Gettysburg collectible.    [sl]
