To our Dear Collectors, We love opening night at Salon Art + Design and every year we smile as our booth fills with collectors and friends. We are enthusiastic luddites who have successfully avoided social media and enjoy nothing more than sharing our knowledge and love of Italian glass, in person and over time. We founded Glass Past New York in 1995 and since then have immersed ourselves in the field of historical Italian glass from 1870 to 1970. Acting as private dealers, consultants and curators, we have had the great pleasure of contributing to some of the most important private and public collections in the world. We have curated over a dozen Important Italian Glass auctions for Wright and have achieved numerous world record results, but the pleasure of these curatorial efforts extends far beyond record prices. These sales have given us the opportunity to meet collectors, enthusiasts and scholars throughout the world and handle thousands of pieces, exponentially increasing both our expertise and passion for the material.

While we may be relatively invisible online, we are always available to assist with questions and collections both large and small and may be contacted by email or phone. Until next year, we remain, Sara and Jim
