Comparison of Indiana Whitehall, Fostoria American, and Hazel-Atlas Cube

Comparison of Indiana Whitehall, Fostoria American, and Hazel-Atlas Cube
Am Whitehall - 3 1/8" high, 3 3/8" across
Fostoria - Individual 2 1/4" high, 3 1/4" across
*Hazel-Atlas - 2 1/4" high, 3 3/8" across

* HA attribution has been disputed. Both Jeannette and Hazel-Atlas made the little shape in the late 1940s into the 1960s in crystal. It is impossible to tell the crystal Jeannette from the crystal Hazel-Atlas. You have to find a set with a label to know for sure.

Jeannette made the crystal tray that is often found with a crystal sugar and creamer, and Jeannette sold the crystal sugar, creamer and tray to Sabinware who sold the 3 pc sets in satinized colors. There has not been any catalog proof that the little set was ever part of the 1930s Cube dinnerware line and there is a big gap between the early 1930s dates of Jeannette Cube and the late 1940s dates when the little set starts to appear in printed media. None of the Jeannette literature found calls the little set "Cube" either, it's just part of their giftware line. There is printed literature indicating that Hazel-Atlas made the amber, crystal and milk glass versions.
A pink set has not been found with a label and a catalog page for Hazel-Atlas or Jeannette that lists the little set in pink has not been found either. In the owner's opinion, the pink sets were made by Hazel-Atlas because there is no pink tray to be found. The Jeannette advertising always shows the crystal sugar and creamer on the tray, regardless of the decoration. Even the unusual red stained sets sat on a red stained tray. Sabinware colored and satinized the crystal pieces and they always were sold with the matching tray. There are literally thousands of these little pink sets floating around and no pink trays. Hazel-Atlas never sold their sets with a tray.
