New Bedford Art Glass
From 1870 until 1950
In the decades following the Civil War, New Bedford's economy began shifting away from whaling into new areas of industrial production. The manufacture of art glass, which began in the 1860s, became one industry that brought this city international prominence. The Museum's beautiful and diverse collection representing the major styles of Mount Washington, Blackmer, Pairpoint, Smith Brothers, and Gunderson art glass produced from 1870 until 1950 returned to a renovated glass gallery.
