Series I. Batch Books and Ledgers, 1882-1925, makes up the bulk of the collection. It consists of batch books, ledgers and notebooks of both Bournique and J. J. Dandoy. Along with batch formulae, the books contain glassmaking codes, lists of suppliers and customers, wage information, and product and price information.
Series II. Correspondence, Print Materials and Photographs, 1883-1925, contains correspondence from the years 1883-1885. The majority of these letters are from the Albert Berger and Company glass manufacturer. Also found within this series is a 25 page typescript which is unsigned and undated, possibly written by Bournique, titled "Cleveland as a location for a glass container plant. Summary." There is also an original copy of the August 1913 "Ornamental Glass Bulletin" containing Bournique's obituary as well as several photographs, which are mainly group images of glass workers.
Some materials contain French text.
