Situated in Morgantown, West Virginia, the Seneca Glass Company (1891-1983) manufactured over 1,000 hand-blown and hand-cut crystal glassware patterns--that's more than any other glass company worldwide! This beautifully illustrated book showcases Seneca glasswares produced during the Victorian era, Depression years, and contemporary times in over 750 superior color photos. It gathers an amazing assortment of stem, bar, and tableware; rare, early, unusually large, and colored pieces; unbelievable place settings, and much more. Original company catalog pages and advertisements (vital for pattern identification), information on company history and years of production, a look at the techniques and necessary tools in glass making, a tour of the Seneca factory museum display, a price guide, and an index make this book the first to document the company's entire production range.
