BELMONT No. 98 (OMN)
• AKA:
Elson Glass Company, Unknown Date
• NOTE: Sid Lethbridge: This is the No. 98 Caster with Hobnail bottles from a circa 1893 Elson/WV glass catalog. The caster story is convoluted because Elson is documented as picking up Belmont's caster line in 1890 when Belmont shut down. In fact, several casters that can be linked to Belmont through ads, etc. are shown in the same catalog using Belmont's line numbers. However, this particular caster cannot be linked to Belmont so unless we can find actual facts to document it to Belmont, it should be assigned to Elson.
