Atterbury & Company of Pittsburg, Pa.

In 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.
