Learn More About American Brilliant Cut Glass

American Brilliant cut glass came out of the shadows of European cut glass in 1876 at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. There, representatives from eight American glass manufacturers showed off their leaded-crystal goblets, tumblers, decanters and serving plates, each of which had been deeply cut by hand.

The Brilliant Period, as the heyday of the form is known, lasted from the nation’s centennial until about 1915, when changing tastes and less-expensive pressed glass which replicated the look of cut glass, pushed the real thing to the sidelines. During the Brilliant Period, roughly 1,000 cutting shops were founded to meet the demand. These shops would turn thick, unadorned crystal "blanks" into multifaceted confections, whose cut and engraved surfaces splashed light around a room.
