Art glass sprang from a revolution in glassmaking in the mid-1800s when glassblowers began experimenting with colours, patterns, and textures. The consequent melding of artistry and technique resulted in a huge variety of beautiful and mesmerizing handmade glass ware such as vases, lampshades, bowls, decanters, paperweights, and even marbles. With eye-catching colours and an alluring array of shapes and patterns, vintage glass art offers a unique decorative accent that recalls craftsmanship from decades past.

History of vintage glass art

Although glass objects have been produced as early as the Bronze Age, the more modern technique of cut glass dates back approximately 2,000 years. Glassmakers would hold a cooled piece of glass to a grinding wheel to carve fine grooves, intricate patterns, and compelling designs. The Italian city of Venice became a leader in the craft, as they moulded glass into elaborate drinking glasses and introduced colourless forms of glassware.
