Started in 1880 by Thomas G. Hawkes, the Hawkes Company was making glass for the White House by 1886. In 1889, two of their cut glass patterns won the Grand Prize in the Paris Exposition. This coveted prize not only brought prestige to Hawkes, but for the first time American glass gained a firm place on the international scene. By the 20th century, American cut glass was world renowned, recognized for its superiority and advanced glass-making methods, with Hawkes' Cut Glass Company providing some of the finest and most inspired pieces of the period.
