We have a microfilm copy of Crockery & Glass Journal, and on page 28 of the December 14, 1882 issue (vol. XVI no. 24) there is a notice stating:
"Bryce, Higbee & Co., whose works are situated at Hulton, on the Allegheny Valley Railroad, twelve miles from here, are doing a very good trade this season. They make fine table ware, and their showrooms at 171 Smithfield street, this city, contain some beautiful specimens of their productions."
