Omnibus, US Glass and an Argentinian Glassmaker

The Omnibus pattern was evidently produced by two different manufacturers, each using different moulds for both the pitchers and the tumblers. Most pitchers and tumblers are like that in the above photo on the left, made by US Glass. The green pitcher on the right, made by an Argentinian glassmaker, has the almost identical pattern, but the shape of the pitcher and the handle are different than the US Glass examples. This green pitcher sold in 1999 for $600.
