Depression Glass Fruit Knife/Box

Depression Glass Fruit Knife

"From the mid-1920's through to the 1940's glass knives were part and parcel of most complete kitchens. It was an era in which most everything imaginable was made out of glass -- from mail boxes to tableware to floor lamps to serving trays to dresses! Ranging in size from about 7-1/2 to 9-1/2" these glass knives were most commonly made in crystal [the Depression Glass collector term for transparent uncolored glass], but were also available in amber, blue, green, pink, and white. Now, why would one ever want a knife made out of glass you may ask? The best answer comes from an original advertisement for the "DUR-X GLASS FRUIT and CAKE KNIFE" a gadget designed and patented by a certain John Didio of Buffalo, New York in November 1938"


This is a 9" long solid glass Fruit Knife in original box with floral motif painted handle. The knife is surprisingly sharp and appears in unused condition. The handle also has embossed on handlePat'd/12/14/20/B.K.Co.. The box has printed on it Glass Knife for fruit no metal to tarnish,etc.. It also has a vignette of women/childrensittin cutting fruit with punch bowl on table in center. Condition is very good with no chips /cracks/staining,etc.The box shows signs of wear/tear with bottom of box having both small ends missing and sides are loose but still attached..The top is in good shape with just some curving to sides but pretty well intact. The box has some darkening due to age but not bad. ID=ANTQ46
