After his partnership with the Duncan family ended, Augustus H. Heisey opened his own factory in Newark, Ohio, in 1896. The company’s early pressed patterns imitated cut glass. Heisey introduced the first of its Colonial patterns, with simple panels, scallops, and bands, in 1905. Many of these lines were made throughout the factory’s lifetime. Stemware, mostly blown, was first made in 1914. Much of it had needle-etched or engraved designs.
