The Consolidated Glass Company was founded in the late 1800's and produced lamp globes and shades for a nation rapidly becoming electrified after the invention of the electricity and the light bulb. While attending the 1925 Paris Exposition, Consolidated became inspired to expand their production and entered into the giftware field. In 1926, Consolidated introduced the "Martele" line imitating the Lalique style and initially advertised their Martele line as a "Lalique reproduction".
Other than the "Lovebirds" design which was a direct Lalique copy, the Consolidated designs were all original. The Martele line was very successful and is perhaps today the most recognized of all Consolidated glass production. Most Consolidated glass, including the Martele 700 line was produced in colored flashed glass which was inexpensive to produce.The solid glass pieces were more limited in production and are the most sought after with red glass being the most expensive to produce and the most desirable.
