It is said that the Lalique Lovebird design was copied exactly; but all other Consolidated designs were original. Initially, Martele was advertised as Lalique reproductions. Consolidated made Martel glass in blue, crystal, green, pink, white, or custard glass with added fired-on color or a satin finish. This hard to find and highly collectible vintage American art deco style hanging fixture "modernizer" pressed frosted white glass shade designed by Reuben Haley for the Consolidated Lamp & Glass Co. located in Coraopolis, Pa. was issued a design pattern on march 5, 1929 .

These included the Martel, Catalonian, and Ruba Rombic (i.e., geometric, angular lines, etc.) for the Consolidated Glass Company's art glassware division from 1926-1933.
