Founded in Connecticut in 1876, the Meriden Flint Glass Company employed some of the glass industry's most talented craftsmen, producing internationally award-winning cut and decorated glass.
Although it was only in operation for a brief time, the company was important in the history of the American glassmaking industry and played a role in the development of the early American labor movement. The Meriden Flint Glass Company closed in 1886, was sold to James Murray, and then operated as the James Murray & Company glassworks until June 23, 1888. Wave Crest glass, Victorian and art nouveau style glass, was made in Meriden.
