This item is part of the Adolphe Bournique collection. See BIB 78087.
Grey ledger book with red corners; a piece of masking tape with the number "5" is on the back cover. An attempt was made to enter some of the color recipes on the page number corresponding to the color number. Many pages are blank. Several loose recipes were inserted inside the front cover, and between pages 102-103, 188-189, and 204-205. These are in different hands, probably written by Joseph Bournique, Adolphe Bournique, and J.J. Dandoy, and have been removed from the main text. They are housed in folder 4, grouped by location found within the book.
Appears to be written by the same hand as [Batch book pages, 1884], which is attributed to Joseph Bournique. Date based on the appearance in 1906 of abbreviations for clear, very dark, etc. in the [Pot record, 1905-1910], believed to be written by J.J. Dandoy. Loose materials bear dates between 1901-1917.
Adolphe Bournique collection
In 1873, Joseph Bournique, emigrated to the United States from France. His family joined him in Somerville, Massachusetts a year later. In 1881, Joseph Bournique became a senior partner of the glass manufacturing firm of J. Bournique and M. Contat, a firm of antique and colored glass manufacturers based in Brooklyn, New York and the family moved to Brooklyn. Adolphe Bournique worked with his father and partner until the business was sold. In 1903, Adolphe Bournique became the glassmaker for Opalescent Glass Works in Kokomo, Indiana. By 1907, he founded his own company in Kokomo called the Bournique Glass Company and served as both vice-president and general manager. Joseph Bournique died in 1910; Adolphe Bournique died on July 23, 1913, after a sudden illness. J.J. Dandoy was the vice-president and factory manager for Bournique Glass Company during the years 1915-1917.
