Description

  • Pattern: Orchid
  • Made in USA, Newark, Ohio 
  • Vintage: 1940 – 1957  
  • Description:   This is such an elegant and beautiful creamer and sugar bowl set, it was hard to put it up for sale.  The glass is beautifully edged in the Orchid pattern with a wonderful "ruffled" border.  They are footed and even the foot and handles have a wonderful design.  The bottom is embossed with the Heisey "H" inside the triangle but it is so tiny, it was almost impossible to capture in the pictures. Everything about this set says class and glamour, truly beautiful.  Great as a hostess gift or bridal shower gift, (if you can part with it!).  Also a great gift for your favorite orchid grower/lover.

A. H. Heisey was founded by Augustus H. Heisey, a German immigrant, in 1896 in Newark, Ohio.  Augustus had worked for Ripley and Company, a glass manufacturer, and was also a trained glass blower.  As he gained experience, he decided to build his own glass factory.   A. H. Heisey died in 1922, then his son, Wilson Heisey, took on the role of leading the company.  When Wilson died, in 1942, T. Clarence Heisey became the company's new president.  During it's most prosperous time, the company employed almost seven hundred people.  The company closed in December 1957 and sold all their assets to the Imperial Glass Company.  They continued to produce some of Heisey's items until 1984 when they went bankrupt.
