Overview

The Glass Industry in Sandwich is a five volume series of books presenting a factual account of glass produced by the glass companies that were located in Sandwich, Massachusetts, between 1825 and 1922. Included are color photos of over 2300 Sandwich glass objects that have been thoroughly researched and authenticated by Sandwich glass experts Raymond E. Barlow and Joan E. Kaiser, who have worked together for twenty-two years. Recognized by the antiques industry as the "Bible" in its field, this magnificent set of books has become a trusted reference used by glass curators of major museums as well as by early American glass collectors, antiques dealers and auctioneers. Each photo is accompanied by dimensions, approximate time of production, and captions that detail methods of manufacture and sources of documentation. Comparisons are made between objects manufactured in Sandwich glass houses and objects produced in foreign and other American factories. Cutware, a General Assortment represents a specialized portion of the fifth and final volume. It features four complete chapters on cut, engraved, and etched glass; an assortment of household and commercial ware; bottles; and a supplement to previously published guides.
