Albany Glass - Model flint glass Co.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reverse Swirl, Circa 1901-1902  This pattern was produced by The Model Flint Glass Co. of Albany, IN.  Research indicates that Albany may have made the "Collared" version of Reverse Swirl as early as 1898. 

This pattern was designed by John Miller and was first produced by Buckeye Glass Company in 1888 where Mr. Miller was issued the patented (Patent #393257) for the process of making this type of glass.  Mr. Anderson latter started the Anderson Glass Co, in Anderson, IN. then went to work for Eagle Glass Co. then to Riverside Glass.  Next he moved on to Albany Glass after it was purchased by National.  Mr. Miller probably owned the molds for Reverse Swirl since he held total patent rights.

Colors: White (Clear), Blue & Canary (Vaseline) opalescent.
