I'm listing a few books that might help you, if you haven't already seen these. You should be able to request them through interlibrary loan at your local library if they are not available there. Our curatorial staff can assist with identification (although they do not do appraisals.) You can contact them through their online form (

You can also mail hard copies of photos to Curatorial Dept./ The Corning Museum of Glass/One Museum Way/ Corning, NY 14830.

They may be able to identify your glass or at least give you some possible firms to explore. I would be happy to send you a bibliography on Westmoreland Glass, if you are interested in further research on that piece.
