The Allaire Glass Collection

Our collection spans nearly 3000 years of glass making from the Roman period to the present. By historical periods and geographical areas it is as follows: Roman Empire, Migration Period, Middle Ages (Wald Glass), Venetian & Facon de Venise, European, English, Spanish and American. Most of our glass was made before 1850. The glass is presented as a timeline within historical periods, geographical areas and areas of study generally used by collectors and museums. The timelines are incomplete as is our collection. Click on individual titles to see the glass.
