Vintage smoke black glass convex tray has a really great graphic of automobiles. We believe this tray was made by Houze Glass.

Graphic includes:

AUTOMOBILES THROUGH THE YEARS
Steam Tractor 1771
Steam Vehicle 1885
Woods Electric 1912
Colombia 1901
Stevens Duryea 1908
Stanley Steamer 1913
Mercer 1922
Cord 1930
Terraplane 1930
Buick Riviera 1964

The smoked glass tray has gold trim around the automobiles and is highlighted with a gold border. This probably dates to the 1960's since the newest car is a 1964 Riviera. This tray belonged to a dear friend and has been well cared for. It is 8 3/4 inches long and 6 7/8 inches wide.

A little history:
In 1952 the company still had its sun glass business, and in order to expand, developed the ‘smoked glass’ product line of screen printed trays, souvenir items, and even a line of formal dinnerware under the ‘Houze Art’ trade name. The company’s business was plagued through the later years by fires, floods on the Cheat River and began to diminish in the 70s and 80s such that the main product was the purchase and decoration of mugs and glasses.

While the name of the company has not changed, the ownership has changed several times in recent years." In 2004, Houze closed the Point Marion Factory after 102 years of business.

We are in the process of sorting through many years of treasures, some which we got from our parents and grandparents. We are at an age where we would like to see our family treasures go to new homes where they can be used and appreciate. We are trying to do this in a timely manner and appreciate your patience.
