Overview

This colorful book is a fascinating compendium of the hand-made, mold blown glassware produced for use in homes and businesses from the early twentieth century, on through the Depression era, and into the 1950s and '60s. This beautiful glassware, produced in Morgantown, West Virginia, is displayed in over 860 color photographs. The decorations that adorn this brilliant glassware are illustrated among the photographs. The reader will become familiar with the striking colors, etchings, cuttings, and cased filament stems used to make Morgantown glass distinctive and immediately appealing. Included in the text are a history of the Morgantown Glass Works (under various names and ownerships), a review of glass making techniques—including descriptions of specific techniques given by Morgantown employees themselves, and a survey of the decorative techniques employed by the firm. A detailed bibliography, an index, and values round out the presentation.
