Cut glass has been traced back to ancient Egypt, and engraved glass was known in classical Rome. In this guide the author traces the history of the manufacture of cut glassware in America, describing the products of major and minor manufacturers. He follows the development from the early days of imitative work through its high point in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries to its decline in the twenties and thirties.
