Obscure Glass

We sell a variety of obscure glass types as well as Reeded reproduction antique window glass. Obscure glass, also called patterned glass, figured glass, or decorative glass is typically a type of rolled glass that has a pattern embedded into the surface of the glass by the roller. The pattern diffuses the detail of objects viewed through the glass, and the degree of diffusion is a function of the pattern chosen. Some patterns can not be tempered because of the depth of the pattern or the method of manufacture. Available thicknesses depend upon the particular pattern.

Other obscure glass types may be back painted, or be laminated with decorative interlayers. Check our photo gallery to see samples of available obscure glass types.
