About this product
- DescriptionAfter painstaking research (with the help of the Big Dig), rewned appraiser Joan E. Kaiser has created the most detailed and accurate historical narrative of and guide to the glass factories of South Boston. The furnaces of South Boston far exceeded in number the well-kwn and well-researched Sandwich glass factories. Due in part to the destruction of business records in the great Boston fire of 1872, however, these factories were largely forgotten or their history misunderstood, with their products conflated with those of other nineteenth-century New England glass manufacturers. Detailing the history and output of more than twenty-five flint glass, bottle glass, and window glass companies from 1811 to the end of the century, Kaiser provides collectors with the most complete pictorial guide to the glass of South Boston w available on the market. With a foreword by J. Garrison Stradling, this lavishly illustrated volume is both a fascinating history and an absolute necessity for museums, auction houses, and serious collectors of early American glassware.
