As many of you know I shut down First Class Glass in order to get my life
and the business in order. I had planned to reopen for business this spring.
As you can see I didn't make it. I have realzied that I just don't have
enough hours in the day to do everything I need to do. So I have decided to
shut down First Class Glass permanently. That will be effective on August
31, 2014. In the meantime the website is open and I have placed sales on
every item. The discounts range from 20% to 50% off the price as listed.
There will be no additional discounts.
Please note, since I was unable to take a complete inventory there may be
some items that are no longer available. I won't know that until I search
for the items after you've placed an order. If I no longer have an item I
will call or email immediately and let you know.
Thank you for your business and I wish you all long, healthy and happy
Cambridge Glass had been part of the National Glass Co. and when that
company closed Cambridge went out on its own and became one of the finest makers of
American glass. Their quality was outstanding from the start. They were one of
the first companies to experiment with color and their colored glass was so successful
they had to expand to accomodate the demand. There is one book devoted just to the
colored glass made by Cambridge. However, they were also known for their patterns.
One of the most coveted is their "nude" line which is characterized by a
nude woman forming the stem of the item, such as a comport or goblet, holding up the bowl
of the goblet etc, which was often made in color. That line is really magnificent
and VERY hard to find.
