Our Education Corner will enlighten and inform you about Heisey glass.

If you’re like most Heisey collectors, you have an assortment of pieces with unidentified cuttings done by cutting and decorating companies. From simple gray cuttings to exquisitely detailed engravings, most of them are destined to remain unidentified. Heisey sold a lot of glassware to cutting companies – more than 60 companies in 1916 alone – and there is very little documentation available today to identify the cuttings done by them. One exception is the Lewis & Neblett Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. An article in the February 2013 issue of the Heisey News includes five pages from the company’s 1917-1918 catalog, titled American Cut Glass. To view the article, click here and scroll down to page 18. Lewis & Neblett used Heisey blanks exclusively and produced beautiful cuttings, with more artistry than the typical gray cuttings of the period. Several examples of Lewis & Neblett cuttings are shown in the photos below.
