Iowa City Glass Company by Elaine Henderson

CAUTION: From the EAPG Society research library:
Several books attribute many patterns and pieces to the Burlington Glass Company based solely on the presence of shards at the plant site. The shards are limited in number with most patterns represented by one or two shards. Research done by a Canadian, Sid Lethbridge, has identified that Burlington products included lamps, fruit jars, medicinal bottles, and lamp chimneys. An extensive review of twenty years of contemporary newspaper and trade journal reports found no historical evidence to support that pattern glass was ever made at this factory.
