Whether shaped into elegant decanters or turned into paperweights, glass is one of the world's most sophisticated materials. Examine some of the most magnificent pieces ever created --including a Netherlandish Roemer cup from the 17th century, or a most graceful and fragile fluted Falcon de Venice. "Plus" candelabras, bowls, vases, tableware, and mirrors--many with elaborate etchings, enamellings, and adornments that enhance texture, color, and loveliness.
