Wheel-cut glass

I created this blog to communicate with interested individuals about a very specific form of decorated architectural glass.
(Please refer to the History of Wheel-cut glass section for a detailed description.)

I am interested in chronicling the history of the process in more detail and would be grateful for any information regarding location of original glass in homes or of any information regarding family connections to glass-cutters which may have been working in the trade.

There is very little information available on the subject and virtually no documentation, I have been interested in this subject for over 25 years and have steadily accumulated pertinent information I am hoping to find like minded historians to share this information with.

  1. We have here in Georgetown at very least one historical building with briliant cut glass. It is a very simplistic, obscured background with polished cuts. Are you interested in pictures or anything?
