History of Glassware – The Art of Collecting – Reyne Haines & Jonathan Novack

January 4th, 2010 by

Reyne shows us a range of styles of glassware from the early 1800’s to the 1930’s. She starts out with some examples of Victorian enameled glass which is very ornate and was used in formal table settings. Next up is the Art Nouveau style, where the pieces were very shiny, iridescent and free flowing. In the early 1900’s Art Deco was the style, with very bold geometric designs, plus we get a little information on Vaseline glass from this period. Jonathan is on his best behavior and doesn’t break a thing!
