Thank you for contacting the Rakow Library with your question. We have Roman glass from the Sangiorgi collection in the Museum collection. You can view the pieces from the link below.

The 3-volume book, Roman glass in the Corning Museum of Glass by David Whitehouse is published by the Museum. We have it in our library. There is Sangiorgi glass in each volume.

There are several options for you to view the books:

·         It is for sale through the Museum Shop at the link below

·         You may request the books from interlibrary loan through your local library.

Attached is a listing of the materials in our Library about the collection. However, only the Whitehouse book is available for interlibrary loan.

Also attached is a short article about the 1999 Christie’s auction of the G. Sangiorgi collection.

Please contact me with any questions you might have. I hope this information is helpful.
