The House of Brilliant Glass will be closing its doors soon. Please check the remaining inventory items in our Sales Catalog one last time to see if there is a piece you would like to have for your collection. All items are in “better than extremely fine condition” (BTEF) or “extremely fine” (EF) as defined on our Discussion on Condition page. If you find something you would like to have for your collection, I am happy to offer lay-away on ‘spendy’ items or I can discuss a possible price reduction. Don’t wait — you may miss out on getting that ‘special’ collection piece…..

It has been a great twenty-three years. Happy hunting and THANK YOU!

EXPLORE our sales catalog.    I have many pieces  of carefully-selected American Brilliant cut glass available.  The inventory is indexed by inventory number, price, cutting house, shape, color-to-clear, rarities and silver-adorned items.
Please visit our Sales Catalog.

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 Guide will be transferred to the website of the American Cut Glass Association after this website is closed.  We did not want this wonderful collection of researched information to be ‘lost forever.’

CONDITION DEFINED:  We have two conditions for the American Brilliant Period cut glass offered on our website — BTEF (Better Than Extremely Fine) and EF (Extremely Fine).  You will find the meaning of each condition type in our A Discussion of Condition article under our Articles & Opinions menu above.   If you have any questions, ask us — we will be more than happy to answer any of your questions or concerns.
