It is the story of Stourbridge Glass told for the first time; of its products, domestic and fancy, of its significant figures, masters and cratsmen, makers and decorators, of its great periods and famous individual pieces, of the missionaries who carried its craft to Bristol and Newcastle and abroad to Ireland and the United States. It describes the trials and triumphs of its development from its earliest phase of window-glass and bottle-making, through its adoption of lead glass, pioneer experiments in pot-coloured glasses which culminated in the fantastic opulence of a mid-Victorian heyday, exploitation of cutting and its golden age of cameo-carving and engraving to the renowned cut crystal of today." - jacket
