COMMENT:

Signing cut glass became more common after 1905. Signatures came into being to protect the specific patterns attributed to specific companies, due to loss of pattern books as the workers moved around from different companies. The signature would protect the pattern from being copied by another company who was not the original owner of a particular design. Some workers did steal pattern or design books as they were fired or rehired by a different company.

This specific cut glass vase was found in Montreal, Canada at a Place Bonaventure Exhibit (Antique Show) some years ago and apparently came from an affluent household there. This would make sense in the fact that Pairpoint did have an outlet in Montreal shortly after c. 1900 and the original purchaser probably bought it from the outlet there.

Is it not interesting that so many cut glass companies first opened shop as silversmiths and evolved to becoming well known for their glass? Well crystal and silver go hand in hand!

CONDITION: BTEF condition.

HISTORY OF PAIRPOINT CORPORATION: Pairpoint started many years ago in New Bedford, Massachusetts in 1866. Later in 1870 the property was purchased by William L Libbey of Boston. He now joined his Mount Washington Glass Works with Pairpoint. In 1894 Pairpoint bought out Mt. Washington and in 1900 they merged and became known as the Pairpoint Corporation. At this point they were just as well known as Gorham in the United States and were just as big if not as big. Their branches were proliferating New York, San Francisco and Montreal. This was success! Unfortunately, as with many other great factories, they too fell prone to the Great Depression and rumblings of WW II in the near distance and had to close their doors in 1937.

Pairpoint was well known for its silver and lamps. Today as in the past, Pairpoint is and always will be held in high esteem World wide.
