A collection of 83 glass samples - plain and colored, variegated, opal, embossed - shipped in a vintage Mississippi Glass case. The Advance Glass Company has its roots in Utica, Ohio, where it had been Cathedral Glass. After a fire destroyed the building in 1922, the company moved to Newark and changed its name to Advance Glass. The company supplied glass for skylights and cathedral use. Rare! This is the first time we've been able to offer samples from this company.
