Object Name Tag
Scope & Content Tag accompanying a Libbey Glass Division of Owens-Illinois Ashburton token.
Date Created ca. 1976
Notes Text from inside the folder:

A token specially struck for the friends who have shared in Libbey's growth ... to mark the re- introduction of the Ashburton Collection as we originally produced it in 1848 ...

Within the fortnight you will receive a gift of especial value ... not quite a golden chalice, but a goblet of golden glass in the fashion of 1848.

With Libbey's's re-introduction of Ashburton, we wished that you should have one of the first pressings. And with it comes the hope that we will merit your continued support for many more years to come.
