Moongleam was probably the first of the pastel colors that Heisey introduced in the mid-1920s. It is basically a lighter form of Emerald, although the early Moongleam pieces are very close to emerald. The #1020 Phyllis cream and sugar can be found in both shades. Heisey called Moongleam “the green of moonlight on the sea” in early ad copy.The most common patterns in Moongleam are #1401 Empress, #1404 Old Sandwich, #1170 Pleat & Panel, #1252 Twist, #500 Octagon and #411 Rib & Panel. Many pieces in Moongleam are very difficult to find. Items in #1425 Victorian, #1425 Warwick & #3397 Gascony would be scarce and quite desirable.
