The innovative glass making techniques of Leo Popper are highlighted in my sterling silver rings. Immigrating from Austria in the late 1800’s, Leo Popper made manufactured buttons in both black and colored glass. Gorgeous veins of silver run through his colorful buttons, creating a unique look to his glass.
Leo Popper & Sons operated for 91 years as manufacturers of glass in New York City. Their buttons and ornaments can be seen today in well-known edifices such as The Cathedral of St. John the Divine and the Washington Cathedral. Popper also provided glass for L. C. Tiffany & Co., as well as others who worked in iridescent glass in that period.
