The Meriden Flint Glass Company

An Abundance of Glass
Founded in Connecticut in 1876, the Meriden Flint Glass Company employed some of the glass industry's most talented craftsmen, producing internationally award-winning cut and decorated glass.

Although it was only in operation for a brief time, the company was important in the history of the American glassmaking industry and played a role in the development of the early American labor movement.

The photos to the right show the factory as it looked in the 1880's, and as it looks today!
