Thanks for contacting the Rakow Library. We have a small amount of information about Reading Artistic Glass which operated from 1884 to 1886. Attached is a bibliography of articles that I found which have photos of some of their glass. You can compare yours to those in the articles. In one of the articles it is mentioned that the pieces are not often signed.

If you wish to obtain copies of any of the items in our list, please contact your local library. Additionally, the Rakow Research Library is a member of the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC); your library can contact us through OCLC or they may mail an Interlibrary Loan form to us. You may request up to five items at a time. We send photocopies of articles and microfiche copies of our books (if they have been microfilmed) through Interlibrary Loan for four weeks use. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any additional questions.

 In our library we are not able to identify your glass, just provide research information. For assistance identifying your glass object, you can contact our curatorial department through their online form (
