English Glass

Here's a perfect example of how British culture is lost. These two English glass cameo plaques are considered the finest works of brothers George and Thomas Woodall in the late 19th century. On the left is The Attack, on the right The Intruders. CLICK to see a larger graphic. The Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, Virginia, USA, recently acquired The Attack and has reunited it with The Intruders, which it has owned for some time. The Museum is closed for renovations, but its Glass Studio is open (CLICK).
