  • Details:  Bartlett Collins is well known for this Thumbprint pattern, they made it in clear and color glass, later adding different decals/patterns to the same glass shape.  This one has these very pretty "sugared grapes", called Golden Grapes (decoration 806), Bartlett Collins introduced this pattern in 1947.  The white grapes pattern was made by hand, applying finely ground glass or sand (there's conflicting information out there), to the outside of each piece to form the grapes and leaves.  This stemmed style glass is known as a Schooner, designed for drinking beer, (it's sometimes identified as a water goblet), it is pressed glass and has two mold seams.  Not only perfect for drinking LOTS of beer, but great size for holding lemons and limes or corks on your bar.

Bartlett-Collins was started in 1914 in Oklahoma when H.U. Bartlett, an Oklahoma oil man, teamed up with George F. Collins, an East Coast glass man (owner of Premium Glass Co), and formed Bartlett-Collins Glass Co.  The company was well known for its hand-pressed and blown tableware, stemware, and kitchenware and kitchen lamps.  In 1918, Bartlett and Collins had a falling out and Collins took over one of the plants which became Liberty Glass Co.  Liberty Glass, meanwhile, concentrated on milk bottles. Even that soon changed with the addition of soda bottles. After years of continual shifting, both firms finally settled into long-term production patterns. Although Collins had left, the name 'Collins' was kept because his son, J.W. Collins, remained the vice president.  In 1929, the word 'Glass' was dropped from the name and the firm became Bartlett-Collins Co.  By the 1930's Bartlett-Collins was making the stemware, all by hand, in different colors like: pink, green and amber.  However, by 1941, due to the high costs, all hand made glass production had ceased.  In 1982, the Lancaster Colony Corp. acquired Bartlett-Collins but kept the name.  Lancaster Colony was the parent company of Indiana Glass.  Bartlett-Collins made mold blown glass items for Indiana Glass and Tiara Exclusives. Bartlett-Collins continued to operate in Sapulpa until 2008 when Anchor Hocking Co. purchased the property and closed down the plant.  There were many popular products made in the Sapulpa plant and are highly collectible today including: cookie jars, drinkware, stemware, serving dishes, kerosene lamps, and decorative pieces such as bowls and vases.
