AMERICAN BRILLIANT CUT GLASS

by Bill and Louise Boggess (1977)

A Note on the Russian Pattern: Variations of this pattern are identified on this correction sheet, if examples are illustrated. Russian Canterbury is equivalent to Russian, the catalog name (but relevant catalogs are often not available). The longer name is preferred by today’s dealers and collectors in order to avoid confusion with the three other variations of the Russian pattern: Russian Cleveland, Russian Ambassador, and Russian-Persian. The Persian pattern is a different pattern; it is not the same as Russian-Persian.
