|Higbee Miniature Cup|
|These photos were sent to me by Mike Carwile in early 2022. They're of a miniature cup he had recently acquired. It is 2 1/2 inches tall and in marigold. He wasn't sure if another existed.
I asked Mike if he knew the age and here's what he said "I just know that it was Bryce, Higbee & Co. in 1879 and became the J. B. Higbee Glass Co. in 1900 and possibly went on at least until 1909. Not sure beyond that"
Mike notes that there is lots of advertising on it which the four photos above clearly show. Astounding how much lettering the maker crammed onto this small cup:
Handle to the right (assumed to be the primary side): "HIGBEE HOT OR COLD SANITARY VACUUM BOTTLE"
Handle to the left: "FOR HOME & DOMESTIC USE"
The side opposite handle apparently shows the bottle itself and in very small text says "HIGBEE SANITARY BOTTLE"
The bottom has the words "COMPLIMENTS JOHN HIGBEE CLASSCO BRIDGEVILLE PA" Note that the lettering is reversed so that it will read correctly when viewed while drinking.
