""New Hampshire Glassmakers: 1780-1886" celebrates the extraordinary glass manufacturing industry in the Granite State from the Revolutionary War era through the Industrial Revolution. New Hampshire was home to five early American glasshouses, producing bottles, flasks, and tableware for more than a century. Working under cruelly primitive working conditions, early glassmakers conquered their harsh environment to produce wonderful utilitarian objects and creative works of art"--www.nhglassmakers.com
