- Pattern: Golden Grapes – (Discontinued)
- Made in USA
- Vintage: 1980’s
- Details: Very pretty set of mixing bowls, with an etched grapes and leaves design and gold rim, so pretty you may be tempted to use them as serving bowls! Bartlett Collins introduced this pattern in 1947, however, based on research, we know these bowls were made by Bartlett Collins but sold under the Indiana Glass name after Lancaster Colony, (the parent co. of Indiana Glass), purchased Bartlett Collins in 1982. See below for a brief history of Bartlett Collins and Lancaster. The bowls have no seams, which means they are blown glass, not pressed glass, another sign that they are Bartlett Collins. The outside grapes pattern was made by hand, applying ground glass to the outside of each bowl. A real treasure! These will be heavy, our price already includes shipping fees, no surprises at check-out. Of course these were meant for mixing, but we would be so afraid to scratch them, they would look beautiful used as serving bowls on a buffet table. Gorgeous as vintage kitchen decor, great gift for a retro lover!

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 plant 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.
