The triumphs of Admiral Dewey during the Spanish American War launched a flood of memorabilia, including paper, metal, silk, and even glass. The line was the first designed by Charles E. Beam and was probably being readied for introduction in the summer of 1898 when the Indiana Tumbler & Goblet Co. named the line after the admiral. Dewey can be found commonly in Canary, Amber, and Emerald Green and Crystal. Although several pieces are found commonly in Chocolate, other pieces are very difficult to find in Chocolate. Nile Green and Opaque White pieces are quite elusive and Teal and Cobalt Blue and Golden Agate are a very rare find.
