Harlequin is a 2ft x 4ft panel featuring the hand cut bevels of Dennis Swan.  Four round jewels are cut from Kokomo Glass billets and are faceted on both sides of the glass.  The largest jewel in the scepter is a full 2 inches thick.  Eleven diamond bevels are cut from ¼-inch thick Kokomo clear Vertigo Glass.  No two are the same.  Amber Vertigo was used on the end of the scepter to create two beveled bronze clasps for the large jewel.  For additional information on Harlequin click here.

Donated by: Joseph 2bears.   Hand-cut beveling donated by Dennis Swan.

1923 Pittsburgh Glass
1924 Wendling Glass Co /Nat'l Ornamental Glass Mfrs. Assoc.

This is a fine reproduction of two stained and leaded glass catalogs: a 1924 catalog of stained glass church windows from the Wendling Glass Co. and the stained and leaded glass portions of a 1923 Pittsburgh Paint & Glass catalog. The Wendling catalog was merely stamped with that firm's name - the designs, and in fact the catalog itself, were developed by the National Ornamental Glass Mfrs. Assoc., The NOGMA was a trade group based in Pittsburgh, formed to assist in marketing and to promote good design in glass products. It is likely that the windows in the Pittsburgh Glass catalog came from either that group or a similar one. Pittsburgh Paint & Glass was quite active in and supportive of numerous trade groups.
