"Masterpieces of American Glass" tells the story of how this industry shifted from the functional to the artistic. Featured are more than 100 color illustrations of objects from The Corning Museum of Glass and The Toledo Museum of Art as well as from Lillian Nassau Ltd., a leading dealer in Art Nouveau glass.
