The nineteenth century was the most diverse and inventive in the history of British glassmaking. Its unending succession of technical and artistic innovations is still the cause of wonderment to us today. The long-standing dominance of cut glass at the beginning of the century gradually gave way to competition from a host of rivals, the chief of which were engraved glass, colored glass of many kinds -- layered, painted, gilded, and printed, for example -- both uncolored and colored fancy glass, and press-molded glass. This is a fully revised and, to a considerable extent, re-written new edition of Hugh Wakefield's classic work on the subject. Illustrated with 9 color plates and 166 monochrome plates.
