Sadly, Warren has passed and the House of Brilliant Glass is in the process of closing its doors. All our personal collection pieces and the remaining inventory items are included in our Sales Catalog. All items are in “better than extremely fine condition” (BTEF) as defined on our Discussion on Condition page unless otherwise noted in the description of the piece. Over 200 pieces are being offered including major pieces from our personal Straus collection.
Additional information will be available upon request. We can best serve your needs if you call or email us regarding what you are looking for!
