Welcome to our website store . . .
where you will find the largest and most comprehensive website that is
dedicated to both the collecting and study of American Brilliant cut glass circa 1875 to 1915.Due to a recent server and database failure beyond our control, our previous website and database were lost. Long hours were spent rebuilding our website and we now have it ready for you to peruse once again. However, we need your comments, suggestions and questions to help us perfect the new website. A large number of new items are being posted and repricing of previously posted items has been done. Thank you for your patience and consideration. Enjoy!
STEARNS COLLECTION: Phyllis Stearns, a long-time member of the Columbia Chapter of the ACGA is in good health and spirits but has moved to smaller quarters; she has decided to ‘share’ her diverse collection that features a wide variety of cutting houses and is concentrated on smalls and unusual shapes. We will post new items frequently and, due to the volume, photos and descriptions will be minimal. If further information is requested, we will answer you promptly. The items are priced to sell and all are ‘coded’ with FSG5500 series numbers. Please keep in mind that all the pieces are in our ‘extremely fine’ or ‘better than extremely fine’ condition. Click the ‘For Sale Glass’ tab, then click the Phyllis Stearns Collection category on the left side of the page to view her pieces grouped together.
EXPLORE the website by clicking on the drop-down menu bar to view several hundred pieces of carefully-selected American Brilliant cut glass that are indexed by inventory number, price, cutting house, shape, color-to-clear, rarities and silver-adorned items.
LEARN more about American Brilliant cut glass by accessing several hundred pages of reference material. We are particularly pleased to be able to post selected information from Jim Havens’ E-Book, A Guide to American Cut & Engraved Glassware. The Guide has over 900 pages of carefully researched material on a wide array of subjects including major and minor cutting houses, scores of new identifications in — and corrections to — several of the previous books on ABCG (Boggess, Revi, Rarities, etc.). The Guide can by accessed from the Guide to ABCG menu tab.
ENJOY several hundred photographs, detailed descriptions, the Jim Havens’ E-Book and the learning experience.
We are full-time stocking dealers and maintain a showroom in our home. If you are seeking specific shapes, sizes, designs or the products of a particular cutting house, please let us know — we have many items that are not yet posted. We will give priority to specific requests. We purchase and accept consignments of quality cut glass single items or entire collections.
