HEISEY GLASS Colonial Clear Punch Cup Star Bottom *Marked* Circa 1907 - 1956
HEISEY GLASS small punch cup in the Colonial Clear pattern with "star design bottom." Colonial Clear was introduced in 1907 and discontinued in 1956.
The bottom of the punch cup is inscribed with the company's well-known trademark, a raised "H" inside a diamond and measures 2 ¼” high with a 3" wide opening with a slightly flared brim.
About Heisey Glass: Heisey Company was founded in Newark, Ohio by Augustus H. Heisey in 1895. Heisey had worked in the glass business for decades, starting at age 19 with the King Glass Company and later with Duncan Glass, where he ended up as part owner through his wife, Susan Duncan's inheritance.
Heisey Company was known for fine quality glassware and its high clarity and brilliance. Most, but not all pieces, are marked with the company trademark, a raised capital letter "H" inscribed inside a diamond. The trademark was designed by Heisey's son, George Duncan Heisey.
Like many glass companies, two world wars curtailed Heisey Company's business considerably and the factory closed its doors in December 1957, selling its mold to Imperial Glass.
