Farewell – and Thank You!

It’s been a wonderful 23+ years sharing beautiful cut glass
and extensive information on an important part of American history.

LEARN  more about American Brilliant cut glass.  We were 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 complete Jim Havens’ E-Book is (hopefully) being transferred to the American Cut Glass Association website along with many of our original articles and research information. We did not want this wonderful collection of researched information to be ‘lost forever.’

(You can use the four links at the very top (left) of this page (above ‘Welcome to The House of Brilliant Glass’ banner) to access the Havens’ information as well as other cut glass articles for awhile. Enjoy!)

Don’t forget — The  Bitterness  of  Poor  Quality  still  remains  after  the  Sweetness  of  Low  Cost  is  forgotten…
