STORK HABITAT ETCHING (AKA)
Unknown Maker, Introduced: speculated c1890
• NOTE: Speculated as made by Northwood or Hobbs, Brockunier & Co. There is a pitcher that has "Peace & Happiness" etch. Another has a bird etch (stork habitat aka) very similar to "Flamingo Habitat", a known Hobbs, Brockunier & Co. etch.
NOTE: Sid Lethbridge-I think that is very interesting that both the stork etching and the Peace & Happiness etchings appear only on rubina water sets.
NOTE: The Flamingo Habitat element that is missing on the rubina pitchers and tumblers is the semi circular arch over the bamboo. The arch and bamboo appear on every piece of Flamingo Habitat with the exception of the cakestand, which only has the bamboo.
• Motifs: (Plants/Foliage/Trees/Vines ), (Bird/Fowl), (Acid Etched)
