Narrator, Dedo von Kerssenbrock-Krosigk, former curator, The Corning Museum of Glass.
Former curator Dedo von Kerssenbrock-Krosigk describes this cut glass table. Glass furniture was popular during the last half of the 18th century. In the 19th century, some furniture was made almost entirely of large pieces of glass. The Imperial Glassworks in St. Petersburg, Russia, created tables, stands, urns, and chandeliers for palaces. This cut glass table, designed by Thomas de Tomon, was made at the Imperial factory around 1808. It was probably a present from Czar Alexander I to his mother or sister.
