American cut glass won world acclaim in the 19th and 20th centuries, recognized for its superiority and advanced glass-making methods. Decorated entirely by hand, American Brilliant cut glass was extremely expensive and out of reach to all but the affluent class.
It thus became a symbol of elegance and leisure, and demand for beautiful glass products spurred intense competition and creativity within the industry. Tuthill's Cut Glass Company provided some of the finest and most inspired pieces of any other maker.
