Ancient Glass Blog of The Allaire Collection


The Corning Museum of Glass is truly a unique Museum!   It focuses on only one subject –  glass. The purpose of this blog is to highlight the historical glass collection which is the most comprehensive and perhaps best in the world. The Museum has more than 45,000 objects and traces 3,500 years of glassmaking history.
