Price: $21.95 S&H: $4.95
The History Press, 2011. Paper, 6"x 9", 159 pages, illus., index. The purity of the sand found in Northern Berkshire County provided resources for over fifty years of glass making for regular windows and stained glass windows in the rural landscape of western Massachusetts. From its first cylinders blown in November 1853 the demand for the Berkshire Glass Company’s work grew exponentially until they were producing 3,000 feet of glass by 1855. As the Civil War raged, the company suffered along with the country, but came out of the strife stronger than ever. Join authors Julie L. Sloan and William J. Patriquin as they reveal the inner workings of the Berkshire Glass Company and the intricate stained glass born of Berkshire glass. Leonardo Reviews
