Mt. Washington & Pairpoint Glass Volume Two

This second volume of Mt. Washington & Pairpoint Glass realizes Kenneth M. Wilson's dream of completing the history of America's second-oldest glass manufacturer. It continues the survey of the company's art glass and cut glass, with chapters on Royal Flemish, Albertine and Crown Milano, Colonial and Crown Pairpoint, Napoli and Verona, cut and Rich Cut glass, and the cut, engraved, and specialty glasses that Pairpoint offered until it closed in 1938.

Wilson, who was formerly a curator at The Corning Museum of Glass, completed the chapters on Royal Flemish and Albertine and Crown Milano wares before his death in 2005. Jane Shadel Spillman, curator of American glass at The Corning Museum of Glass, finished the book with the help of several researchers, writers, and consultants.

This volume includes an appendix of patents, concordances of glass objects and trade catalogs, and a general index.
