Jane Shadel Spillman, curator of American glass, The Corning Museum of Glass, narrates.
Jane Shadel Spillman, narrates this exploration of the "Mt. Washington and Pairpoint Glass: From the Gilded Age to the Roaring Twenties" exhibition, on view at The Corning Museum of Glass, May 19-December 31, 2011
Mt. Washington and its successor, the Pairpoint Corporation, was one of America's longest-running luxury glass companies (1837-1957), one that rivaled its better known contemporaries, Tiffany and Steuben. It constantly reinvented and re-invigorated its business through creativity in texture, decoration, pattern, and color--developing a variety of styles and decorating techniques which were so technically complex that few are even practiced today.
