Avon’s 1876 Cape Cod Collection of deep ruby red glassware was conceived to summon up “early American pressed glass called “Sandwich Glass.” (Many American women remembered their mother’s and grandmother‘s Sandwich Glass collections from the early 20th Century.) It featured lacy, intricate designs, fine background stippling, and exquisite brilliance which reflected the superb craftsmanship of its makers.

Many of the detailed designs of this prized glass were produced by the Boston & Sandwich Glass Works, founded on Cape Cod in 1825. Other companies in the region competed, but the popularity of “Sandwich” pieces resulted in the name becoming a generic term for pressed glass.

This unique Avon 1876 Cape Cod Collection was inspired by the classic Roman Rosette pattern. The collection name commemorates both the spirit of the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial, the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and, Cape Cod, the area where Sandwich Glass originated” (quoted text from the Avon box).

The deep ruby glass dinnerware has attracted many collectors and Avon's Cape Cod is one of the most beautiful of the patterns. The design was introduced in 1975 and was discontinued in 1993. In all, 37 different pieces were produced. This was Avon Product's first venture into a dinnerware line and, because it was well received, Avon continued for nearly two decades.

Many have made collecting all 37 pieces their goal, but since it has been two decades since Cape Cod was discontinued, finding pieces is becoming more of a challenge. The following 10 pieces are all parts of the series in their original boxes. Each vintage piece is in excellent condition, lovingly protected and seldom put to use.
