The Story of L. E. Smith Glass Co. in their Own Words.
As part of our extensive research for our second Schiffer book - A Century of Carnival Glass - we were in contact with many of the glassmaking companies that were in business at that time. One of them, Contemporary Carnival Glass maker L.E.Smith Glass Co., sent us material that included their company's history in their own words. Here it is!
Update: Glassmaking at L E Smith ceased in June 2004, and although a new company was formed to try to keep the business going, sadly it was not to be and it closed completely in early 2005.
