Candy Containers
The West Brothers were avid producers of candy containers. In fact, co-founder and President George West, has been described as the "Father of the Candy Container Industry." Candy containers were very popular from the mid-1900s through the 1930s. Candy was sold in these different glass and tin containers to children who then were able to use the empty glass and tin as banks and toys. The West Brothers operated as a separate corporate entity out of the same factory as the Westmoreland Glass Company. Numerous patents were approved for candy containers. Westmoreland also did private work for large wholesale merchant companies such as Butler Brothers and George Borgfeldt and Co. To this date, candy containers are very much collected and a separate club, The Candy Container Collectors of America, is dedicated to the preservation and collection of candy containers. 50 Picture(s), last one added on 6/15/2016 6:40
