GENEVA CO-OP CELL CENTER
Libbey was the leading producer of Brilliant Cut glass in the world during its period (1878-1915). The glass was highly leaded- one company was rumored to use up to 60% in the formula. The lead facilitated cutting by softening the glass, as well as adding weight, brilliance, and a lovely ringing sound if struck. The design was created by a master craftsman, then cut and polished by a production line. During the World’s Columbian Exhibition in 1892 and the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904 the company won prizes for exhibitions of their fine glass.
