By Jane Shadel Spillman Written as a supplement to The Corning Museum of Glass's major 2006 exhibition, "Glass of the Maharajahs," this colorful book traces the development of glass furnishings, especially pieces created for Eastern rulers at the turn of the 19th century. It explores a little-known era in glassmaking history, when European glass manufacturers tailored one-of-a-kind and limited-production glass furnishings to the tastes of the wealthy Indian elite. The comprehensive nature of this chronicle provides an excellent starting point for studying European cut glass furnishings made for Eastern royalty and allows interested parties to experience the full extent of this dazzling period in design history.
