|The History of Glass in NZ|
The fascinating story of the many attempts to make glass in New Zealand before the 20th century, and why they failed; the urgent need for a bottle factory in New Zealand and eventual success in 1922; the story of Crown Crystal glass, New Zealand's first and only successful glassware factory; and the rise of the studio glass movement in the late 20th century.
|Crown Crystal Glass New Zealand catalogues|
Included on the CD are 98 pages of catalogues and articles about Crown Crystal Glass, the only glassware factory which ever survived more than a few years in New Zealand. These catalogues give you definitive information on the designs, patterns and colours made in New Zealand.
|The Auckland Bottle Company|
New for the 2nd Edition, this chapter tells the story of the Auckland Bottle Company, which was opened in 1922 at Penrose, Auckland. The chapter includes many original photographs, details, and information not published before. A "must" for down-under bottle collectors.
|Contemporary New Zealand Glass|
Who are the major contemporary glass artists in New Zealand, and what do they make? This section has a separate chapter on each of New Zealand's major artists, with superb pictures of their work.
|1986 NZ Glass Artists Catalogue|
Extensive pictures and curiculum vitae of New Zealand glass artists from the early years of studio glass in New Zealand.
|Crown Crystal Glass Australia Catalogue|
This rare catalogue from some 50 years ago, shows the products produced in Australia by Crown Crystal Glass, and the prices they charged. This catalogue, like all the others on this CD, is shown in full. There is also a section identifying classes of items, such as vases, bowls, goblets to make it easy to recognise Crown Crystal pieces.
