A TEA-ny bit OF HISTORY:

Originally founded in 1818 in East Cambridge, Massachusetts as New England Glass Company, the factory was moved to Toledo, Ohio in 1888 and the company became known as Libbey Glass Company in 1892.  At that time, it secured a contract to produce glass lightbulbs for Edison General Electric.  The company became more profitable when Michael Owens developed a machine that could automatically produce bottle, tumblers and glass chimneys.  With the creation of the automobile, it began to produce windshields.  Thanks to Libbey Glass Company, Toledo became known as the “glass capital of the world” during the 1900’s.  It was one of the largest glass manufacturers during the 20th and 21st centuries and still remains in operation.  In 2001, it was the largest manufacturer of glass dinnerware in the USA.
