Articles on Glassware Topics

The following list of articles related to American made glassware (and some that refer to glass made in other countries) come from sources outside the National Depression Glass Association. The authors have generously given us permission to reproduce their writing here on our web site as a public service to the glass collecting community. Where appropriate, we refer you to the web site of the author of an article, and we thank them for generously sharing their expertise with all of us.

If you are preparing a presentation for your club or other organization, these articles, and the ones from the News & Views and the Rainbow Review/Glass Review will provide you with plenty of material. When you give your presentation, be sure to remind your audience that you found much of the material on the NDGA web site. Use our Search Form to look for information on your topic.
