cut glass

Often now referred to as 'crystal', the glass was blown and shaped, then passed to a specialist cutter, who would polish and cut patterns to enhance its brilliance.

'Empire' prism

Octagonal cut-glass prism with flat front and star-cut back. Used in late 18th century France and also in England on some Regency chandeliers. Lesser-quality prisms were used on chandeliers through the 19th century; a bastardised version is still being made in Bohemia today.

'icicle' pendant

Tapered cut-glass pendant with multi-facetted cutting, in the shape of an icicle.
