Cut glass" is glass that has been decorated entirely by hand by use of rotating wheels. Cuts are made in an otherwise completely smooth surface of the glass by artisans holding and moving the piece against various sized metal or stone wheels, to produce a predetermined pleasing pattern. Cutting may be combined with other decorative techniques, but "cut glass" usually refers to a glass object that has been decorated entirely by cutting.

The Brilliant Cut Glass era i American extended from 1876 -1917. First introduced by eight enterprising American companies at the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia.

The beautiful pair of cut glass tumblers, circa 1900-1910, has a combination of intricate cut designs including pinwheel, hob-star. fine-cut and fan on a heavy corset-shaped blank with star cut base. The tumblers measures 4 1/2" in height, 3" across the top and 2 3/8" across the base. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; normal wear on the base. Unsigned.
