Welcome to our collection !
Living in the Pacific Northwest has many advantages. It is not, however, in a central geographic location that is easily accessible. We would like to share our collection of American Brilliant cut glass with each of you, ideally by your personal visit to Portland which -- unfortunately -- would be both time-consuming and expensive. The easy, cost-free way of sharing would be via an easy-to-operate slide show that you could view at your convenience in your home or office. The slide show is divided into ten sections; when you click on a section name, the slide show will automatically open and begin. Each piece has a design name if known, the name of the shape, the size, and our identification number.
We encourage your comments, questions and challenges to any of the information contained herein. We are particularly interested in identifying any of the items in the 'unknown' folder or anything with a '?' after the stated cutting house or design name. Our contact information is at the bottom of this page. If you would like help in identifying any of your American Brilliant cut glass items, please feel free to email photos to us.
Pick a section, click the link, sit back and enjoy!

and then click on any cutting house in the drop-down
menu list to view.
