A Visit to Three Rivers

less than 1 minute read

While traveling to south Texas, we made a stop in Three Rivers. Three Rivers was the home to a famous glass factory, that we learned from “Texas Glass by Michael David Smith”, produced jars for the H and H Coffee Co. We hoped to find some there.

We visited the first antique shop we saw, The Goodie Box on Highway 72. Although there were no H and H pieces, we did collect some more 3R bottles and more copies of the Three Rivers Glass Company book.

In a fantastic twist, the woman running the shop, Denise Salvagno, made a quick call to her friend and a collector, Debbie Keneson. Debbie had a Crystalvac jar! The only trick was that she would hold it for us at her booth in the Comfort Antique Mall.
