Akro Agate Glass Mark

- Linda Marie Kennedy
The Akro Agate logo is actually a crow flying through the letter "A" holding marbles in its beak and claws. The species in logo is sometimes mistaken for an eagle or other type of bird since it is often poorly molded into the glass and hard to read.

Packages of marbles made from 1910 on included this logo on some boxes, but the marbles were not marked. The crow mark was used on glassware from the late '30s through the 1940s. Production ceased in 1949, but the company sold off its remaining inventory until 1951 when they officially went out of business.
