GLASSMAN...they began makin blown glass in the South Jersey tradition in their own business in 1930. Prior to this the 3 brothers (Tom, Reno,& Allie) had followed in their father's footsteps by working at other companies...one of which was Moore Brothers at which their father also worked and they apprenticed. Moore Bros closed in 1912 and the brothers tried their hands at several jobs before opening their own glass making business in 1930. [/align]Except for repro bottles all their glass was free blown. [/align]There is no mention of any certain reproduction being made first. A catalog printed at the time showed several different flasks, Stoddard decanters & jugs, and the EG Booz cabin.[/align]By the 1940s they were making the Coffin & Hay flask, Fislerville Jenny Lind, Dyott's Washington & Taylor flask, the scroll flask and the Albany flask.......[/align]
