The Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York, houses the world's premier glass collection, a dazzling array of more than 35,000 objects representing 3500 years of glass craftsmanship and design. This lavish volume Corning Museum of Glass: A Decade of Glass Collecting, a visual record of the most significant acquisitions made by the museum in the 1990s, presents a panorama of beautiful glass-making from all over the world. A rare third-century portait medallion, glass figurines made in the early 17th century, a selection of the most celebrated English cameo glass of the 19th century, and fabulous works by leading contemporary glass artists are among the prized objects on display. Etched glass, beadwork, glass furniture, windows, jewelry, and molded glass are some of the featured forms. While most of the examples are from the Art Nouveau time period and later, examples from the Victorian era and earlier are also provided. This visually appealing book provides a varied, chronological overview for scholars, dealers, and general admirers of glasswork. Written by David Whitehouse, the museum's executive director and an expert in the field, and showcasing works suited to every taste, this is a book for collectors, dealers, students, scholars, and anyone who has ever admired handblown glass, fine lead crystal, and etched, enameled, gilded, or stained glass works.
