Libbey Sword Signature Trademark
Not satisfied with the eagle trademark that looked more like a
union label than a graceful signature, application was filed by
Libbey on March 19, 1896 for a newly fashioned trademark.
This was granted as Trade Mark NO. 28,180 by the United
States Patent Office and registered on April 21, 1896. In
designing the new trademark, the name "Libbey" was lettered
in script with the tails of the "L" and "Y" almost connected.

Whether by accident or not, it was amazingly close to the
facsimile of Mr. Libbey's signature. The application statement
read "The trade mark of said company consists of the word
"Libbey" and of the representation of a sword under said word"
