Crown Milano glass was another successful type of Mt. Washington’s Art Glass. This Crown Milano bowl sits on a Pairpoint stand. In 1880, the Pairpoint Manufacturing Company was formed to make silver-plated wares and mounts for Mt. Washington glass. In 1894, Mt. Washington and Pairpoint joined together, and in 1900, the company name changed to Pairpoint Corporation.
