Two Rare Early American Pattern Glass Bowls in the Paneled Thistle pattern made by the J. B. Higbee Glass Co. of Bridgeville, Pa. The two oval bowls are exactly alike, but only one is embossed with the Higbee "Bee" Trademark logo. The tiny Bee logo was introduced sometime after 1907, and the glass plant closed in 1919, so pieces manufactured prior to 1907 would be absent the Bee mark. These bowls feature scalloped rims with saw tooth edges and depict beautiful Thistle blossoms and buds. The Thistle plant is known more as a nuisance weed; but it is an ancient Celtic symbol of nobility, as well as the national emblem of Scotland! A thistle blossom topped with a crown is the heraldic badge of Scotland. Dishware that features the thistle motif may hold particular appeal to those of Scottish descent. Both bowls are preserved in impressive condition exhibiting no major noticeable defects considering their 100 plus years of age! The bowls measure 7.5" long and 5.25" wide.
The Bowls are Offered Separately at $25 for One (or $48. for Both) *Please Remember to Include Phone Number when Replying To This Post - Thank You*
A Paneled Thistle Pitcher is also available. This heavy glass water pitcher appears newer than the bowls. Possibly made by L. G. Wright using Higbee molds. In excellent vintage condition. No damage No defects. 8" tall to top of raised spout. Vintage Pressed Glass Thistle Pitcher - $38.
