L.E.SMITH GLASS CO.
Smith Glass has been crafting handmade, American-pressed glass since 1907, and today, is one of only a handful of American hand-made glass factories remaining.
Known for creating the first headlight lens for the Model T Ford, and the original glass mixing bowl, Smith Glass is known for nostalgic favorites, as well as new contemporary designs. The companyís high-quality pieces play an important role in the tabletop, giftware, and lighting industries.
Like all the other glass companies of the time, L.E. Smith began producing colored glass in the mid 1920ís. Pink, green, amber, yellow, amethyst and cobalt were being made as early as 1926. But in the late 1920ís, Smith Glass hit upon a formula for black glass that set it apart from other manufacturers of the time. This black glass, which shows amethyst when held up to a light, has proved to be the most collected in the industry.
L.E. Smith Glass maintains their original objective, to capitalize on the excellent craftsmanship and tradition L.E. Smith has developed over its lengthy history. At the same time, they will continue to be the leading innovator in elegant, affordable American-made glass that customers will feel proud to own.
In 2005, Smith Glass was purchased by William Kelman.
