Restoration Glass

Restoration glass is glass produced to mirror the look of antique glass. Using traditional mouth-blown cylinder glass methods of the past, wavy glass is still manufactured in Europe today. This glass produces the beautiful waves of historic crown glass and cylinder glass of prior centuries. Pioneer Glass stocks three different types of mouth-blown window and cabinet pane glass with varying degrees of waviness to match the existing panes in your home.   

Baffled as to the different types of wavy glass window panes? Crown, cylinder, machined… we help explain the differences here.

One Response to “What is Restoration Glass?”

  1. Ben Allen

    I appreciate the information on what restoration glass is.I had no idea that this was actually an option when looking at glass, I was always under the impression that this glass was just old and had warped over time. My sister is looking into different types of glass to repair a broken window, I will be sure to share this option with her.
