Union Glass

Sunday, June 14, 2015 at 2:00 p.m.

The Art Glass of Union Glass Company, Somerville, Massachusetts, 1893-1927


Kelly Conway, Curator of American Glass at the Corning Museum of Glass, discusses the history of the Union Glass Company, located in Somerville, Massachusetts. The Company made a wide range of glass over the years, including pressed, mold-blown and free-blown objects in colorless, iridescent, silvered and many colored varieties. 


This lecture focuses on Union Glass Company's development of art glass from 1893 to 1927.  The majority of known catalogs, correspondence and identified glass relates to this period, including a large range of materials represented in the Corning Museum of Glass.

General Admission: $8; free to members.
