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, since Lancaster Colony was the parent company of Indiana Glass, Bartlett-Collins made blown glass items for Indiana Glass and Tiara Exclusives. The "Holly" pattern continued to be sold under the Indiana Glass name after 1982, but most likely still made by Bartlett Collins.
