the 1860's the glass company Hale, Atterbury& Company became
Atterbury & Company. Thomas B. Atterbury was its president.
Along with his brother James, Thomas created one of the finest kerosene
lamp producing companies of the late 1800's. They received over
100 patents for glass and lamp design and production. Their lamp
patterns were numerous and varied: Chieftain, Prism, Tulip, Icicle,
Loop, Fine Rib, Wave are only a few examples. When financial problems
hit in the late 1880's Atterbury & Co. joined with several others
to form a new single company called the United States Glass Company.
