The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass Site

Speaking of Tiffany... it's interesting to see the current exhibit from The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass includes an exhibit of sheet glass and pressed glass from Tiffany's own furnaces. With my humble experiments in making glass for my stained glass I've gained a greater appreciation of Tiffany's accomplishment in creating sheet glass for their own windows. To my knowledge no other studio in the modern era (≈150 years) has made their own sheet glass - the sheer volume of it, let alone the quality, is just mind-boggling.
