Description : Excerpt from Irish Glass: An Account of Glass-Making in Ireland From the Xvith Century to the Present Day Comparatively little is now to be found out about the products of the different Irish glass manufactories. The history of the glass-houses them selves, their period, proprietors, etc., is fairly well known, but when we come to the actual glass itself we find nothing but a few lists, with no details as to form, cutting, or colour. With the exception of a few drawings of some of the patterns used in the Waterford glass-house, no others belonging to Irish glass works are, as far as I am aware, known to exist. As a result of my studies I was, some time back, able to point out that Waterford glass has not the blue tint that has hitherto been ascribed to it. This in itself stamped as spurious hundreds of pieces that had been accepted as genuine Waterford. If all the alleged Waterford glass in existence to-day were genuine, despite the output of the factory and the vast amount that has been broken, it would have taken probably two or three glass-houses to produce it. In selecting the illustrations I have included only those pieces in my own small collection, or elsewhere, that bear the marks of Irish glass works, or pieces which from cutting, colour, etc., I consider indubitably Irish.

Description : Sharma Krauskopf began her career after graduation from Purdue University working with disadvantaged populations. She worked her way from direct services to administration of multi-million dollar nonprofit organizations serving people with special needs. She began sharing those experiences through her own company, Innovative Consulting Services (ICS, Inc.) all over the world. The consulting meant endless travel so she gave it up so she could be home closer to her family and began her writing career. One of the advantages of the consulting was it resulted in her falling in love with Scotland where her ancestors were members of the Clan Morrison. She began an e-zine called Scottish Radiance to share Scotland with the world. That e-zine was the number one e-zine for many years in the early days of the Internet and stories from it are still available on the internet. Writing and editing Scottish Radiance brought a publisher to her in 1999 wanting her to write a book entitled Scotland: Complete Guide and Road Atlas. Since that book she has had 28 book printed by publishers in the UK, Ireland and USA. The books include non-fiction, fiction and books for children. Her love for Scotland grew to the point that she and her husband decided to buy a vacation home in Scotland. The first piece of property they looked at was Neist Pointe lighthouse on the Isle of Skye. Even though they were outbid on that property it convinced them lighthouse living was for them. They spent the next nine years looking for a Scottish lighthouse home. They finally bought Eshaness Lighthouse on Scotland's Shetland Island archipelago in the North Sea across from Norway. David A Stevenson a member of the family of the world's best lighthouse builders designed and built it. The search for and living at Eshaness are responsible for her very popular books about lighthouses and her experiences at Eshaness. In 2014 she wrote a screenplay and produces a feature length motion picture with the goal to honor lighthouse keepers entitled Lighthouse Unmanned. That motion picture was filmed in 2015 and will be released in 2016. She began in 2016 she writing screenplays and producing animated motion pictures for children based on her popular children books.

Description : The seven essays that open the book move from a survey of glassmaking in Europe and the colonies to a brief history of the acquisition of glass by Henry Francis du Pont, whose collection at Winterthur is the basis for this book, and the acquisition and display of glass by the curators at Winterthur following the opening of the museum to the public in 1951. In the second part of the book, the catalogue section, the specifics on each piece of glass are presented.
