Possibly cut by Joseph Stouvenel and Company (1851-1857) American
New York City was an important center for machine-cut luxury glass in the middle of the nineteenth century. This partial group (2014.626.1a,b -.7) of blue-cut-to-clear glass is extraordinarily rare and perhaps even experimental when it was made in the 1850s. This is the only known blue plated cut glass attributed to the Brooklyn Flint Glass Works. The diamond pattern is thought to have been executed by Joseph Stouvenel, a highly skilled glass cutter whose works were exhibited at the New York Exhibition of 1853–54 and published during the period.
