Introduction by Frank Starr.
One of a series of lectures presented to the docents/guides of The Corning Museum of Glass.
Frank Starr, Education Coordinator, The Corning Museum of Glass ; Jane Spillman, Curator of American Glass, The Corning Museum of Glass.
Jane Spillman presents glass used in various periods in America, and its relationship to customs. Included are colonial glassware, early 19th century (bottles, tableware, windows, lighting), pressed ware, tableware for the middle class, art glass, and the beginning of the art nouveau period. Her emphasis is on what was used and how, rather than on specific manufacturers and techniques.
Some technical difficulties were encountered during the taping. "Poor audio & video for 6 minutes" noted at beginning of video.
