Mt. Washington and Pairpoint: 1890: Ad for Art Glass

1890: Advertisement for Mt. Washington

Advertisement for Mt. Washington: Rich cut and decorated wares, including Royal Flemish and Albertine decoration, from the November 1890 issue of The Jewelers Circular and Horological Review.

Mt. Washington advertised itself as the “Headquarters for Art Glass in America” in 1889 and into the 1890s. Art Glass refers to pieces which are created more for decoration than for use. This was just one of the kinds of glass Mt. Washington and Pairpoint produced between its peak years of 1880 and 1930.
