The Gigi range by Mosser Glass features a ‘hobnail’ design that was first introduced by the Fenton Art Glass Company in 1938. In just over a year, the hobnail moulded glass was Fenton’s bestselling design and it remained that way for many years. Mosser Glass were able to obtain the original moulds and bring this popular design to contemporary tables.

Jadeite,  or  jadite,  glass  was  immensely  popular  in  America  in  the  1930s.  It was first  created  to  add  a  bit  of  colour  and  cheer  to  people’s  home  after  the  First  World  War. Today, the pale green milk glass is  a  favourite  with  collectors  all  over  the  world.

Mosser Glass are a family owned and run company from Ohio. They’ve been hand-pressing high-quality glassware since 1971. Their collection evokes a vintage feel with coloured milk glass and intricate moulded designs. Sturdy enough to see service every day, Mosser Glass pieces are designed to be used and loved for generations.

The coloured glass is made by mixing pigments with soda ash and silica sand. Once melted, the molten glass is hand-poured into cast iron moulds. When released from the moulds, air is blown over the new piece of glassware to help it cool. Then the glass is quickly rotated while it's sanded, polished and fired to give a glossy finish all over. This manufacturing process can cause 'stripes' in the pigmentation of the glass, and makes every piece of Mosser Glass unique.

Care instructions

Clean your Mosser Glass Gigi bowl with mild detergent and a non-abrasive sponge. If cleaning in the dishwasher, make sure the bowl will not rattle against other items. Avoid strong shocks of any kind – thermal or physical – as these can cause weak points in the glass.
