From Goblets to Gaslights explores the histories of individual flint glassworks in Scotland from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century, when Scottish glass production was flourishing. Major works
in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Leith are looked at in detail, while other smaller, virtually unknown, producers, like the Clyde Flint Glass Company in Greenock are also covered. Individual chapters
discuss the production of cut, engraved, pressed, and coloured glass while also presenting the many practical, less collectable goods created throughout the period.
This volume is an invaluable study for all those interested in Scottish industrial history, in particular the history of glass production. It is accompanied by a free DVD with a reproduction of a Holyrood
Pattern Book, allowing readers the unique opportunity to closely examine the designs used to create Scottish glass.
