    Just found this today at the Goodwill. Paid 59 cents. There is a mark on the inside of a bee with the letters HIG. An internet search has me feeling it is probably Higbee? I'd love to know the pattern name, year of manufacture, and any other interesting info. Does it have lead in it? Is it safe to drink from?

      think this is Higbee's 'Madora' pattern introduced c1905. and no lead in the EAPG of this timeframe.

      I'm not so sure about the Madora pattern. It doesn't look like the pics I'm googling...
    3. TallCakes TallCakes, 2 years ago
      tho' there may be some similarities to Madora, after further investigation, pretty sure this the "Laurel" pattern by J. B. Higbee c1908, and continued by Paden City Glass c1918.
