about

"The well-illustrated volume (over 750 illustrations, including some previously unpublished catalog material from the Corning archives) provides a history of the Corning glass industry from 1868 to the present. The contribution to American glass of Corning has been significant. (This book) is a careful and well-merited record of that achievement". -- The Antiques Journal

"(Recommended by) Metropolitan Museum of Art curator Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen.... A classic consulted by curators everywhere". -- House Beautiful

"A treasure hunter's find.... The authors provide exhaustive detail in relating the history of Coming during the period which led to its reputation as the Crystal City". -- New York Pennsylvania Collector

Invaluable for the collector, curator, and dealer alike, this classic edition brings to the field of glass collecting a rich store-house of detailed information of unpublished original catalog material from the Corning archives, including long-lost pattern identification.

A priceless aid to anyone trying to identify pieces of cut or engraved glass, the book is an in-depth account of Corning's history -- including craftsmen and technique -- and its unparalleled prestige as the country's largest producer of cut glass at the turn of the century. This book has been updated to reflect the present-day locations (museum or private residences) where the pieces are currently displayed. The Afterword describes the Corning Glass works and its activities of the last twenty years.
