JUMBO, TYPE-1 (AKA)
Unknown Maker, Introduced: c. 1881
• Brilliant Glass Works, Brilliant OH, c. 1881 (speculated)
Central Glass Co. Wheeling, WV , c. 1885 (speculated)
NOTE: Sid Lethbridge: The round table set…is maker unknown - regardless of the opinions of Welker, Johnston, Revi, Florence, Sanford, Lethbridge, Dosier, etc. The speculation is that the elephant is not Jumbo but instead Columbia the first elephant born in captivity in Philadelphia in either late 1880 or early 1881. Unfortunately, it is all speculation because there are no trade quotes, ads or any other contemporary record to allow us to assign this round set to a maker with any certainty.
