just flipped a box that I have over to see if it had a sticker. Sure enough it did! Great tidbit of history. My box is similar to the pair in the second photo. It has a daffodil on the lid and was my grandmothers...good memories.

I brought home some Syroco wall pockets just this weekend and coincidentally, I have those birds as well! Syroco and Homco seem to sell well on etsy -- nice & light to ship.

Yes, another hometown business that is no longer. Syracuse used to have a lot of great manufacturing companies. Syracuse will never be the same. Sigh!

ANYONE HAVE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT AN ARTIST WHO WORKED WITH SYRACUSE ORNAMENTAL?. HIS NAME IS SEVERIN BISCHOF AND HE HELPED DESIGN FOR THE COMPANY AND IS NOTED FOR HIS WORK ON CASEY'S COTTAGE AT MEXICO POINT. I OWN AN ETCHING THAT HE PRODUCED IN THE 1940S.

So is it fair to say that Syroco and Dart are the same company?

John

Syroco became Dart in later years according to a Syracuse University googled link.
