Originally formed in South Boston in 1837, Mt. Washington Glass Works relocated to New Bedford, circa 1870, where it produced a fantastic array of fine cut and engraved glass. At the 1876 Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia, the company displayed a 17-foot high crystal fountain illuminated with 120 gas jets that "presented a spectacle of fairy beauty almost beyond imagination." From the late 1870s until the company was absorbed by the Pairpoint Corporation in 1894, Mt. Washington introduced a series of brilliant, innovative and exotic glass creations that established New Bedford as the heart of United States glass manufacturing. Today, these rare and beautiful pieces are highly sought after by discerning collectors.
