A comprehensive history of the firm presented in a 349-page hardbound book with hundreds of photos and illustrations.

“The factory that would later become Mt. Washington opened for business in South Boston about 1837, and its operations were transferred to an almost new factory in New Bedford, Massachusetts, in 1870. Ten years later, the company’s directors established the Pairpoint Manufacturing Company, a silver-plating firm, next-door to the glassworks. The two businesses merged in 1894 and were reorganized as the Pairpoint Corporation in 1900.”

This volume showcases the fine quality glass produced by the company, including pressed and blown wares, lamp chimneys, lanterns, lamps and chandeliers, Iridescent and Sicilian art glass, Rose Amber, Burmese, Peach Blow and Pearl Satin Ware, Cameo and Coraline glass, novelties, salts and toothpicks.
