Trade catalog.
There is no information regarding the maker of this glassware (presuming it was manufactured by the same company) or the purpose of these photographs. Paden City Glass Co. is handwritten on the reverse of the mounted tab of photograph [1]. The proximity of this company and the printer (name stamped on reverse of each photo) makes it possible that glassware may have been produced by Paden City who was producing optic glassware at this time.
