The Cooper-Hewitt Collection: Glass


These pieces from the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum’s permanent collection depict innovations in glass design and fabrication through the centuries—from some of the earliest Roman-Syrian glass made in the first to the fourth centuries AD to the thin-walled glass produced by the Lobmeyr factory in Vienna in the 20th century.
