A Sincere "Thanks" to the Corning Museum of Glass and Jane Shadel Spillman.
Jane Shadel Spillman, Curator of American Glass at the Corning Museum of Glass (now retired) and current President of the National American Glass Club, accepted the responsibility for completing Mr. Wilson's Volume Two, which had been in the development stage prior to his passing. With the aid of Mr. Wilson's copius notes and records, the assistance from other collectors and researchers, and a fierce determination, Ms. Spillman sent Volume Two to press in 2012. The public release of this scholarly work coincided with a special and superb Mt. Washington Glass and Pairpoint Glass Exhibition at the Corning Museum of Glass, in May of 2012. This long-awaited second volume includes chapters on Royal Flemish, Albertine, Crown Milano, Crown Pairpoint (Pairpoint Limoges), Napoli (Neapolitan), Verona, the rich cut glass of the brilliant period, and the cut, engraved, and colored glasses that were produced by The Pairpoint Coporation and successor companies. The photography and content are wonderful, and exactly what anyone would expect at the hand of Jane Shadel Spillman.
