Mt. Washington and Pairpoint Glass: From the Gilded Age to the Roaring Twenties (Revised)

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. Jane Shadel Spillman, curator of American Glass narrates. Mt. Washington and Pairpoint Glass: From the Gilded Age to the Roaring Twenties at The Corning Museum of Glass, May 19 - December 31, 2011.
