Product Description

by Jill Turnbull

From Goblets to Gaslights: The Scottish Glass Industry 1750–2006 explores the histories of individual flint glassworks in Scotland from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century, when Scottish glass production was flourishing. Major works in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Leith are looked at in detail, while other smaller, virtually unknown, producers like the Clyde Flint Glass Company in Greenock are also covered.

Jill Turnbull obtained her PhD from the University of Edinburgh in 1999. Her previous monograph, The Scottish Glass Industry 1610–1750, was published in 2001 by the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.
