Pioneer Glass offers Schott Glass, plus hand-blown wavy glass from Poland, based on historical window glasses from a variety of different eras.
Schott glass is manufactured using the traditional Fourcalt process. Emile Fourcalt developed this process in the early 20th century and became the global standard of manufacturing flat glass.
The crystal-like clarity of Artista glass emulates distorted glass of the 1600s-early 1700s. It showcases the interior, making the space appear larger, bringing life and sparkle to the room. For either interior and exterior use: as a full pane, in stained glass or as a fused glass.
Geotheglas is colorless, drawn glass characteristic of window glass from the 18th and 19th centuries. In addition to antique glass replacement, it helps protect against bad weather. Goetheglas can be used for windows, protective glazing, furniture, and display cases.
Restover Plus mimics 20th century glass. With minimal thickness, it has no constraints on installation and can easily fit historical window frames and profiles. Restover-light glass is slightly less irregular, Restover-plus has a very irregular surface structure, resembling mouthblown glass.
Hand-Blown Wavy Glass
Mouth-blown glass imported from Poland can either be full or reamy. Full is short for full-antique, meaning it was mouth-blown and created as flat glass, while reamy means full-antique glass with a wavy irregular surface.
Made to be a true replica of 1850s-1920s cylinder glass widely used in America. It has all the classic imperfections with small air bubbles, an occasional flat line, minor pitting, and a dimple. The unevenness is imperceptible.
Crown Glass, used in affluent American homes from the late 1700s-mid 1800s, it is considered clearer than cylinder glass. It has sweeping curved lines, moderate ream and distortion, plus some air bubbles ranging rom seed to quarter coin size.
This gorgeous Crown Glass mimics the handmade, mouth-blown glass found in structures prior to the late 1700s. It is well known for its deep curved lines, high unevenness, and classic distortion that makes it the perfect showpiece glass.

"I ordered three panels of true handmade mouth-blown wavy glass to replace panels in an antique RJ Horner winged lion mahogany bookcase. The bookcase has a mate in my home with all original 1870s glass, so it was critical to replace the missing glass to match the original antique glass of the second bookcase. To my absolute amazement Pioneer Glass sent me three matching handmade mouth blown glass panels that are a perfect match to the original 19thC antique glass I needed. From inquiry to delivery, Pioneer was prompt to return my phone calls and emails, he fully explained the different types of glass I could order, and after describing the glass I needed Dave understood exactly what type of glass I needed for my bookcase. I have been collecting antique furniture for decades and on many occasions had to order replacement glass. All of the replacement glass companies I had dealt with in the past sent me inferior glass and they took forever to fill my orders. Pioneer Glass, on the other hand, not only filled my order immediately, the merchant sent me PERFECT antique replacement glass! As a collector and as picky as I am to match originality, I have to say Pioneer Glass is the first merchant in a very long time I feel I can always count on for both great service and a perfect product. I give this merchant a perfect rating in every way!"—Valerie P.
"I have a piece of antique furniture missing its glass panel. I reached out to Pioneer Glass and purchased a piece of antique restoration glass. Dave was extremely helpful in guiding my choice. The glass was shipped promptly and was extremely well packed. It now looks beautiful in my piece. I highly recommend Pioneer and its services."—Matthew H.
"Historic glass chosen with informed, experienced, and caring guidance; cut perfectly (including arc-tops), robustly packed, and shipped to Michigan in a few short days."—John R.
