- Pattern: Manhattan Amber (aka St. Genevieve)
- Made: in USA
- Vintage: 1960’s
- Details: This beautiful and unusual Amber Bowl could serve as a Salad / Fruit Bowl and is perfect for your Thanksgiving or Fall table! It has a very retro looking pattern, mid century modern, which also makes it a perfect decorative bowl. The pattern has tiny vertical lines (called Blaze) and large indented ovals with a scalloped edge. The bottom has many tiny cut hexagons which make the piece really sparkle. There was a similar pattern made by US Glass also called Manhattan (1902-1920), but that one has tiny little bumps all along the rim, this has a smooth rim. Bartlett Collins reissued the US Glass pattern in the 1960’s and we believe they called it St. Genevieve but the Manhattan name stuck.

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 (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. 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.
