This past year and a half has been a difficult one. My wonderful husband,
Frank, died in February after
a long illness. Since then I've been dealing with everything that entails. Unfortunately my
business, First Class
Glass, has suffered from lack of attention and will continue to do so because of everything I
still have to do. So I have
decided to take a break.
Starting now, and until further notice, I will not be taking any orders for First Class
Glass. Come this spring I will do a complete update and be open for business.
Thank you for your continued patronage.
See you in the spring.
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.
