I’m working on a web site on
Harriton Carved Glass, a company started in the 20’s in NYC by David Harriton. Harriton is the father-in-law/grandfather of friends. The web site will be up soon. Come back and see a link.

    Grandpa Dave was like a grandfather to me. My Mother was his Gerta’s (his Daughter in law) friend for over 60yrs. I spent a lot of time on the mountain and many happy times with Grandpa Dave and Grandma Nellie Mae and the whole wonderful family. I’m thrilled that you’re doing a website about him and his work. I have two glass (mirrrored) panels from a Pennsylvania RR dining car that were made by Harriton Carved Glass. If you’d like photos, or scans of the info that I have (which my Mother got before her death) I’d be happy to provide them.

    Tell Lynne, Laurie, and the gang that I sent my love.

    Bill Green,

    Go, Jamie. How do I find said website again? Billy did not mention that Sadelle, his mother & my mother Gerta’s close friend for over 60 years, passed away last month.

    Our love and condolences forever to Billy, Annette & family.
    Thanks for the ‘comment’ Billly. You’re #1! Please send dig-photos & other info to Jamie, who, I could point out, is an angel for doing this.

    Erik, if you read this – the Nashville panels?

    Love to all, Lynnie

    I’m looking forward to seeing your website. I live in Pittsburgh, PA and I love the glass mural signed by A. Harriton at 300 Sixth Ave downtown.

    Here’s what I could found about the piece on the Carnegie Library’s website:
    http://www.info-ren.org/projects/btul/exhibit/ptp20a.html
    Note: They’ve reversed the slide on their website!

    “27 foot high mural carved of colored glass, showing a steel puddler with molten metal pouring from a vast ladle amid a shower of fiery sparks. Located on Wood Street, between Sixth and Oliver, at site of former Spear & Company.
    Work of the Harriton Carved Glass Co., N.Y., 1939”

    I am a member of the Western NY Rlwy. Hist. Soc. in Buf. NY. We have 4 deeply etched mirrors with Federal thems that were made by Harriton for the Pennsylvania RR in 1952. They were installed in Parlor cars that ran between NY & Wash. on their train – The Congressional. We own on of those passenger cars and are in the process of restoring it. It was named Leonard Calvert. The mirrors we will install are Port of Philadelphia & Port of Baltimore.They are beautiful mirrows.

    Hi to all of you interested in Harriton Carved Glass. My father Anthony D’Attilio was one of the three partners in the firm and also the main artist designer from 1933 until it closed in 1962. I am very familiar with the history of that period and I personally worked there as a high school kid in the summers of 1957 and 58 gilding 20 foot long panles for 37 church windows for a church in Garden City, Long Island. I was sorry to see it close but David had been ill and none involved the last few years. Without his sales skills the firm shrank until dad and Arthur Harriton gave up. Unfortunately both of them were very depressed and anxious to be gone so they did almost nothing to preserve records, remaining glass and other artifacts. I have one piece of furniture with an inset glass panel and a few smaller items as the only evidence of the firm
    Thanks to Tom Stackhouse for the info about the mirror panels of the Penn. RR cars. They were designed by my father and my uncle Ralph D’Attiilo, Harriton’s shop foreman, supervised their installation. All the glass produced between 1946 and the end was sandblasted to carve it by my other uncle, Dominic D’Attilio. The Calvert collection is also a story that became quite personal but more about that at another time.
    For years I have wanted to try find other people who were related to the firm or David and Carol Harriton and also Aurthur Harriton or Ruth Kittenplan, the long time secretary of the firm. I have strong memories of some details of the company and its work and would love to hear about any of the company’s work that is still around.
    You may know that the glass domes of the US Capitol Building’s Senate and House Chambers were from Harriton and designed by by Anthony. I assume they are still there but have not been in the Capitol since 1980. Anyone been there recently? Each dome is an eagle lit by a skylight. – modernistic design in the Senate and traditional in the House and
    Please contact me so we can have a dialogue.

      Dear Larry D’Attilio,

      I recently came across your posting on Jamie Downs’ website for HArriton Carved Glass and am intrigued by your recollections of your father and his work at Harriton Glass Works. Clearly the carved glass and work in eglomise done there was quite extraordinary. Do you know anything about the background, experience and training of your relatives and/or of David Harriton?

      As it might be useful for your research and records, I have a large folding screen with wheel-cut, eglomise panels depicting the twelve signs of the zodiac. One panel is signed “Harriton, NY”. I’f you send me your email address I will forward a photograph of the piece. Any information or insights you have would be of interest.

      Thank you.
      David

      Dear Larry,
      I’m thrilled to learn that you worked at the company. I am sorry that all records are lost as I’m desperately trying to identify some Harriton etched glass windows that were created for Temple Beth El of Elizabeth, NJ. The temple is now gone, but the windows were removed and brought to another temple. I was hoping to be able to ‘name’ the windows as I know at one point there was a description. If you have any information or recollection….one of the windows is Moses with the ten commandments, and there are 7 others….

    I also remember my father mentioning them a number of times but know nothing else. Can Lynne or someone else elaborate?

    One other memory, two long weekends at Arthur’s farm that I was at as a little kid in the late 1940s. I remember it was near the Delaware Water Gap. In a fussy moment of mine Dave came to the rescue of my mother Rose and took me for a ride in his MG -TC sports car. Made a big impression and led me in young adult years to be a club competition director for the Austin Healy sport car – cousin to the MG.

    David had all of the firm’s families over those weekends and back then the company employed more than 70 people. Most of us were housed in a barn in back of the main house. Those were days never to be forgotten

    Larry,
    Thank you so much for your memories and information. I did not know that the firm employed so many people, but I know how important your father was. The eagles are still there to the best of my knowledge. Barack Obama describes the one in the Senate in the very first page of The Audacity of Hope. The farm in PA belonged to Dave Harriton and his wife Helen. Carol, Dave and Helen’s daughter, is still living out there, as is my mother Gerta, who was married to their son Lewis (Looby), my dad, until he passed away. My father talked about Anthony D’Attilio all the time. That land continues to exert its magic on every child who ever goes there.If you want to get any phone numbers in PA, please contact me by email. Laurie (laurieharriton@gmail.com)

    I just really read all of these messages. Thank-you Paige and Tom. I want to see the museum in Buffalo–and I have not been in Pittsburgh for years. My mother, who is really the historian, is not on the internet, and maybe this will be the inspiration we need to get her on.

    Thank-you, Jamie, for creating this site. As Sarah Palin said about teachers, your reward will be in heaven.

    It is great to see input to this blog. My response to Alton Rogers — Thank goodness for your instincts for visual art. The panels you have are very important in the Harriton history. They were the art designs work of my Father Anthony and were taken to Chicago by my Uncle Ralph D’Attilio who was the Harriton Shop Foreman. Uncle Ralph oversaw their installation in several railroad cars I think built by the Budd Corp but not sure about that.

    The panels were among the Harriton works most known to the public at the time competing with those installed on some ocean liner and others that filled the walls of the dining and bar rooms of several New York City hotels

    It would be great to see these panels installed in a museum sometime along with anty other Harriton work that can be located. I met with Gerta Harriton, the company founder’s daughter-in-law last June. She and we would like to see available works and company archives end up as a donation to a museum sometime in the future. Gerta and some of the D’Attilio family have Harriton memorabilia and art work and hopefully somebody can eventually devote the time to organizing a museum collection.

    I hope Mr. Rogers and other collectors would consider providing me their email addresses so we have direct contact in addition to through this blog. For any potential museum involvement ii is important that we have contact info for the current owners of these works.

    Response to David Parker,

    Thanks for your interest and enthusiasm for the Harriton work you have. I think these are panels I remember seeing when I was a middle school kid or earlier. I believe the design work was likely that of David Harriton rather than my father but that area is grey for me. I do remember these panels were a set that acted as a screen in the company’s showroom. Because they were designed to function as a screen or hung as a set the signature would only be added to one panel. Also, characteristically, the signature was that of the firm rather than the artist in the firm.

    Despite the anonymity of the designers the two primary ones were David Harriton who was the only designer artist until my father was hired in the early thirties. I think it is probable that the majority of the design work was done by my father after that until the firm closed in the early 1960s.

    Incidentally the showroom contained a lot of furniture also designed and bult at Harriton with glass, mosaic and other artisan installations designed into the Chinese laquer finish on the wood. As I was told by my parents some of this furniture was popular in the mid thirties with some notable people. But the best known people who I was told purchased this furniture and glass was the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and some of the DuPont family. Assuming that is correct it is a tribute to Dave Harriton’s skills at networking and marketing.

    I certainly welcome collectors or other interested parties to contact me via my email and facebook or cell phone. The contact info. is:

    Belated response to Arthur G.

    I think it is a good guess that your blue panel was a Dave Harriton design as my father was quite new to Harriton at that time and was assigned some very large works to be installed in Federal buildings.

    You raised the issue of research. After meeting with Gerta Harriton last June it is viable to assume between the D’Attilios and the Harritons a lot of details could be reassembled and this blog, or a web site version similar to i,t could become a repository for interested reserachers. I would like to believe somehow we can coordinate on this soon as some of the story may rely on a few of us writing down some memories as we are doing here.

    Harriton Carved Glass was in some sense a progenitor of the art glass movement that became prodigious in the second half of the 20th century. With that in mind, the idea of a central repository for research seems quite important. Perhaps others can comment on this?.

    Hello to Jamie Downs and Larry D’Attilio.

    I purchased a glass-topped table in a Hanford, CA antique shop in 1992 for a Father’s day present for my husband Joe. It has a hand-engraved signature which reads “Harriton Carved Glass 1947”, in caps (although the “4” is very hard to make out).
    We lovingly call it the “fish table’, as it depicts an elaborate underwater scene; a large coral branch surrounded by various sea creatures-very detailed. The octopus is especially whimsical. It is all very stylized, yet realistic.
    The colors are two shades of metallic gold, along with bright silver. The background fades into a mottled, watery grey-silver.
    The table itself is a low (18″), round (33”), heavy, deco pedestal.
    Email me and we’ll get you pix – it’s a beauty!

    Hi to Liz Roberts, – thanks so much for submitting this to Jamie’s blog. Wow what is the chance you would have one of my father’s designs and also be from Milwaukee like me? I think I know the table you are referring to.
    Before going into that I wanted to let you and other people know that responding to your statement here is an opportunity to expand on some more of the interesting history. So please forgive the length and look for a following submission from me where I talk about the technique for the smoked mirrored glass you referred to.
    Your description of the fish merits some further comment. When dad first joined Harriton in 1931 as the designer his interest was just art. Shortly after that my mother, Rose, gave him ornate sea shells that he liked to sketch. That started his parallel career as a shell collector and by 1943 a background in zoology was added. With all that interest in the sea dad loved making designs that featured sea scenes. Harriton’s glass sea scenes became very popular soon after. Architects redecorating hotels especially in New York loved them. My parents hauled me all over Manhattan to show these amazing and very large panels in ballrooms and large cocktail bars in the hotels
    Oddly when you search on dad’s name on the internet there is little about his long career at Harriton and life long career as a freelance artist after that. But there are pages that will refer to his work as a founder of the New York Shell Club in 1947, then curator for the Muesum of Natural History in NY and finally curator at the San Diego Museum of Natural History. He had one of the largest shell collections in the world most of which was donated to the San Diego Museum. The web shows he published hundreds of scholarly articles on shells for a number of institutions
    Additionally his coloring book “Seashore Life Coloring Book” 1st released in 1965 has been always available in bookstores and still is today at Barnes and Noble and at Amazon at this link”
    http://www.amazon.com/Seashore-Life-Coloring-Colouring-Books/dp/0486229300
    Anoither scientific book he also published with an associate. It is Radwin, G. E. and A. D’Attilio, 1986. Murex shells of the world. Stanford University Press, Stanford, California, USA, 284pp incl 192 figs. & 32 pls
    Looking back on it and growing up around glass and shells everywhere in our home it was pretty amazing. Liz I am in Brookfield with a downtown studio too. I would love to meet you and see your Harriton table. I also have many of my father’s art works here that you may want to see – the sea creature idea extnded a lot over the years and art museums gave dad solo exhibits. The closest of those was the Kohler Art Museum who did a solo exhibit for him in 1976.
    Please contact me at 262-227-0595 or by my email. Or leave me a message so I can contact you.
    Also when a message comes to me via the blog it does not include your email – it only has the blog’s email. Just to be sure my direct email is larrydattilio@gmail.com

    Harritons Smoked mirrored glass technique.
    I don’t know how common this technique was in decorative art and I did see glass work by firms other than Harriton that were very similar. Many Harriton Panels were very large and very thick. I personally worked on some over 12 x 8 ft and more than 3 inches thick.The panels were carved like a reverse bar-relief. The carvings done by hand with sandblasting were like shallow sculptures. On another post I will describe the special masking technique developed by Dave Harriton the founder.
    Once the glass was carved it may have been polished and that was it but most of the time it was more ornate. Theo rnate ones had gold and silver leaf applied into the carved areas, often in a patina that mixed the two. First a varnish aka size was painted on the carvings. The leaf was picked up on a flat brush like a magnet. You brushed your face then touched the brush to the leaf and it would stick to the bottom of the brush. You patted the brush on the glass and that was it. After all the leaf was on you rubbed it with a cloth to get rid of the scraps and gold dust.
    The glass panel then went to the back of the studio because large ventilators there would keep the air ok. In the back were wooden vertical tanks holding gallons of mirroring chemicals. The fumes had to be managed and some of the time we used carbon filter masks.
    If a panel just needed simple mirroring it was lowered into one tank that etched the uncarved smooth side of the glass. Then it went to a 2nd tank where it acquired the abitlty t get micro sized granular silver to stick to it. Then it went into a solution of silver Chloride and there the silver precipitated out of solution to cling to the glass as minute particles. A smokey effect came from using silver and also partially oxidized (blackened) silver one after the other with each hosed down variably to thin their coating out. That way the mirroring shifted brightness and looked cloudy.
    Even more complicated was to combine the smokey techniques with other mirroring solutions of gold, bronze, and others I can’t recall now.
    All of that mirroring work was done by one man throughout the life of the firm doing that type of work. His name was Emile and he was a very talented craftsmen. A lot of my applied art skills I use as a cross media artist myself come from Emil’s teaching me when I was a sassy 16 year old.

    There were many remarkable talents in the Harriton Carved Glass Founder, Dave Harriton. He was a very special man who loved fine art but also had an instinct for business and marketing. As a young person he worked in his family’s sign making business. But he quickly saw the potential for using masking techniques to allow etching of hard materials such as glass and aluminum.
    Acid etch is a non variable process by nature. That is you really can’t etch in a sculptural fashion that way. So the best way was sandblasting by hand. The challenge was to protect the material you did not want carved. The jet of sand could not hit a protective material that was very hard. If it did the sand would bounce off at high speed and hurt the snadblaster person or disturb the carving process. What was needed was a material that could softly absorb the sand but not let them get to the glass surface.

    So Dave Harriton studied and researched and experimented. Finally he created large sheet of a brownish looking paper. A gelatinous paste he developed was applied to the paper with brushes or rollers. The sheet were hung to dry. Their gelatin surface protected the glass and absorbed sand rather than bouncing it back. After drying the sheets were pressed against a new panel of glass until one side was completely covered. The carving design was transferred from tracing paper to the brown masking material.
    Another artisan with a pointy sharp knife cut along the design’s lines then pulled the piece of mask paper off the glass wherever the glass needed to be carved. After that the glass was put on a trolley that was wheeled into the sandblasting room for carving.
    Dave also was an excellent photographer, painted in oils, and always looked for new techniques and developments to be used for glass, metals, mosaic, and acrylic that could be applied to decorative art projects.
    The company story was that Dave’s development of that secret gelatin formula for the mask paper was what made glass carved at Harriton unique. I don’t know if that is accurate but Harriton shop foreman, Ralph D’Attilio told me it was and since he was my uncle that was good enough for me.

    If anyone has any information about the carved glss that Harriton did for the St. George Hotel in Brooklyn, it would be greatly appreicated. Lynne Harriton has already confirmed that they did work for the hotel, but had no background info beyond that.

    Yossi maybe I can help. I may be able to suggest the right place. I can help you better if I can see a photo of the work. If you are willing to do that and if it is glass it is best if the light from the glass comes more from behind then in front ( such as the glass being photographed in front of a window in a house).

    If it is not a transparent art work then light from the front is OK.

    You also may want to make a closeup photo of the signature. The art work could have been designed by David Harriton or my father, Anthony D’Attilio. If it is a generic Harriton signature then the only way to know with any degree of certainty is by my looking at the style of the design. Both designers used line and form differently. A lot of the work produced by Harriton Carved Glass was signed for the firm as Harriton regardless of who did the actual art work thus the need to know more about the signature and look of the work.

One of us from among the two connected families may be interested in a purchase but it depends on what the drawings are. Can you send some photos of a few of the drawings so we can check? my direct email is larrydattilio@gmail.com.

    Earlier in this blog the St. George Hotel was mentioned. I believe my parents took me to see this hotel, I am guessing in the late 1940s. What I remember is that It had very large wide panels of glass in the cocktail lounge and ballroom designed by my father and recently installed at the hotel. The scenes depicted were of ocean life under the surface and the panels were edge lit. In typical Harriton Carved Glass Style of the time, the carvings was backed up by various colors of mirroring, and gold, silver and bronze leaf also added in the depths of the reverse relief carving.
    I am not that positive that the work I saw was at the St. George. Maybe someone else out there remembers better than I do.

    IOne of the last large glass projects done by Harriton Carved Glass was a job with (I think), 37 tall window panels for a church in New Hyde Park, Long Island, NY. (Or it may have been Garden City). About 10 years ago I spotted the church on the church’s web page and there were photos that did show the Harriton Carved Glass windows.

    Ealier I mentioned in this blog the Harriton Carved Glass skylights in the domes of the U.S. Capital, house and senate chambers. A family member went to D.C. this past Fall and has verified that the panels are still the skylights in both chambers.
    National Geographic’s two page spread on President Kennedy’s address to congress in January 1963 shows the skylight in the house quite clearly. Kennedy and Johnson are easily identified in that photo.

    Thanks for the insight Laurie. I also think I have some of the preliminary drawings my father made of the glass eagles . I seem to recall, my father saying that his younger brother, Ralph, the shop foreman, Ralph went to the capital around 1950 to direct the installation.
    The installation happened close to the time when the Puerto Rican separatist group, the FLN, shot 5 members of congress during a regular congressional session.

    Message for Larry D’Attilio. This piece of info is actually new! Hope you get this. My mom & I went to visit a beautiful panel panel of Transportation Glass” (the identical panels they had in train stations across the country; none left. This one had cracked into shards, but the owner had put them together. Obviously no value in this condition but he, like so many, had become interested. He told us that Malcolm Forbes had been a collector of Harriton glass. We all know how many pieces were designed by your father, so there’s reason for this to interst you, too. I dint know how he learned it but he informed us that Malcolm Forbes had been a collector of Harriton Carved Glass. Whew! He’s dead & collection is now with his son. This got my attention because we all knew big wigs had “worked them” for hire, but collecting? Might this be a horse of another color? Collector’s donate their collections to museums in exchange for the room having their name(s) on the door, right? If this is true & the Forbes family actually has a collection, well… Well, anyway, I wanted you to know!!!!
