I am researching the Meriden Flint Glass Company, which operated in Meriden, CT, from 1876-1889. I am looking for any marked pieces (they used an orange, diamond-shaped paper label, sometimes placed inside the cylinder base of kerosene lamps), Hero shades (glass lamp shades, white on top, clear on the bottom, most often found on Bradley & Hubbard lamps), oil lamp shades with applied photographs, or any glass items with the Meriden B Company logo. Also, any catalogues!
Also, I am reading the diaries of the Meriden Flint Glass Company supervisor and have come across a number of terms that I do not know. Does anyone know what the following 1880's glass-making terms refer to?
