Cloud Glass Identification Guide + Gallery

Back to Glass Encyclopedia Home

Cloud glass is a form of pressed art glass, created by applying streaks of dark coloured glass to paler glass, which creates a random swirled, "clouded" pattern. The cloud glass technique was invented by George Davidson & Co in 1923, and has since been used by other glass companies including Sowerby and Walther & Sohne.
