Full Description
The Mt. Washington Glass Works and the companies that succeeded it constitute America’s second-oldest glass manufacturer. The first Mt. Washington factory opened for business in South Boston in about 1837, and a descendant firm, the Pairpoint Glass Company, continues to make fine glass in Sagamore, Massachusetts. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Mt. Washington was celebrated for its Art Glass and Rich Cut glass, which are highly prized by collectors today. However, until now, virtually nothing has been known of the company’s history or its many other products. This book, long and eagerly awaited by glass collectors, corrects the situation. It offers a comprehensive history of the firm and begins a survey of the many types of glass manufactured by Mt. Washington, including fine-quality pressed and blown wares, lamp chimneys, lanterns, and attractive lamps and chandeliers. Other products discussed and illustrated in this volume are the first Art Glasses (Iridescent and Sicilian), Rose Amber, Burmese, Peach Blow and Pearl Satin Ware, cameo and Coraline glass, and novelties.
