American Brilliant Cut Glass

New World Innovation from 1876-1917
 
This collection captures the unique beauty of American Brilliant Cut Glass, which first broke free from the dominant European glass market in 1876. For centuries, American glass makers fell short of the European standard, but with increased immigration to America in the 19th century, European artisans brought their expertise to the U.S., and American glassmaking began to thrive.
