Pilgrim Art Glass – Est. 1949
Pilgrim Art Glass was founded in 1949 in West Virginia, USA. During the mid-20th century they produced the range of popular hand blown decorative glass which was colorful, and/or large, and/or crackled.
The infamous Moretti brothers immigrated from Italy to America and joined Pilgrim during the 1950s’. They brought with them skills to create Murano/Venetian/Italian style glass forms which were very popular in America. Pilgrim glass collectors have a wide range of forms, colors and styles to collect. Besides the normal household lines, a full line of figurines was also produced.
Today, Pilgrim Glass produces the Pilgrim Masterwork Collection Legacy Cameo Glass line. It’s a beautiful assortment of carved art glass. The cranberry, crackle and colorful hand blown items from Pilgrim’s mid-century years are no longer produced but can be found relatively easily by the collector today.
