Antique 3 Mold Boston & Sandwich Glass Co. Decanter, 19th c
Colorless Blown Three-Mold Boston & Sandwich Glass Works Decanter with Shell and Rib Design. Dimensions: 11.5 high (29.21cm). The Boston & Sandwich Glass Company operated in the seaside town of Sandwich, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod, from 1826 until 1888. Company founder Deming Jarves was a romantic, even heroic figure in the minds of early collectors. In the charming setting of glass furnaces nestled among the sand dunes, as they imagined it, Jarves oversaw the manufacture of beautiful, traditional, hand-blown glassware, but also pioneered the new, mechanized process of glass pressing. As such he appealed both to Americans' veneration of their Colonial past and celebration of their progressive, innovative national spirit. The item "Antique 3 Mold Boston & Sandwich Glass Co.
