About this title


During the nineteenth century major European glassmaking centres exerted strong influences on British glassmakers. The reaction of Bohemian glassmakers to Regency cut glass led to the development of coloured glassware which was immediately copied in turn by English glassmakers and exhibited in all its glory at the Crystal Palace Exhibition of 1851. In the second half of the century the great glassmaking tradition of Venice influenced important glassmakers of the calibre of Apsley Pellatt, John Northwood and Harry Powell. The prosperity of Victorian England attracted Bohemian engravers, French enamellers and gilders who played a vital role in establishing this period of manufacture as the Golden Age of glassmaking. This major publication has established itself as the standard work on nineteenth century British glass. In addition to cut, engraved, cameo and etched glass, the information on personalities, working conditions and the operations of the glasshouse gives the collector an all-round view of

From Library Journal:

Produced as a reference for members of the Antique Collector's Club of Great Britain, this veritable encyclopedia of the 19th-century British glass industry far surpasses previous works dealing with this period. The 19th century saw the production of cameo, rock crystal, cut, and pressed glass, all of great interest to the collectors and historians of today. The wealth of detail about production processes, exhibitions, excise taxes, and other aspects of the glass industry is of particular interest. Hadjamach presents good biographical information on the glassmakers and a section on fakes, forgeries, and reproductions. The illustrations are numerous and excellent. Highly recommended for all decorative arts collections.
