Many of us will have come across Apsley Pellat’s book “Curiosities of glass making with details of the processes and productions of ancient and modern ornamental glass manufacture” , published in 1849. He covers a wide range of glass making techniques and methods and pressed glass accounts for only a small part of his coverage.
However, it is interesting to see what he wrote because he published his book quite close to the time that the techniques of pressed glass were invented, in the 1830s in the United States.
